Check out this 6 minute video detailing Urvi's productivity and workflow system.
Our world is filled with productivity enhancing hacks, tools, and systems. Our desire to constantly improve productivity and workflow demonstrates that current culture is 1) looking to make more time and 2) we are excepted to (by others or ourselves) produce more at a higher rate while maintain quality.
If you happen to try out this system, let us know how it worked for you! Email us at email@example.com or tweet at us @strategicedtech
Step 1: Map Out Your Goals
Step 2: Assign Estimated Hours Per Goal/Task
Step 3: Populate Your Calendar
- include recurring time slots (e.g. meals, working out, breaks etc.)
- include two 30 minute time slots for miscellaneous items from your to do list
- include time to check/clear your inboxes
Step 4: Set Up Your Bullet Journal
Our template recommendation is to divide one day's spread into 3 sections:
- Soft page (goal and targets)
- To do list
- Recurring mini tasks (small recurring tasks)
The soft page section includes:
- Your 1 major goal for the day (we recommend something related to mindset, attitude, or personal growth)
- Your 3 major targets (typically related to your calendar work times and to do list)
- The last part of this section can include accomplishments from the day before or a short list of things you are grateful for going into your day.
The to-do list section includes:
- The work listed in your calendar from step 3
- Other items that might come up during the day
The recurring mini-tasks section includes:
- Daily habits (e.g. exercise)
- Small items (e.g. push out a company tweet)
- Color code all tasks by the goal under which they fall (color code personal items as well)
- Draw check boxes next to all items in the to-do list and recurring mini-tasks section
Although this system sounds complex, it will become natural after just a few weeks of implementation. This system has proven to be both flexible and capable of molding to any work style or job. We all want to become more productive and gain time in the process; to achieve this, we must plan at both a macro and micro level. Try out this system and let us know how it works for you!
