Straight and Curly 89: Our top 10 productivity tips for 2018

Productivity Tips

And we’re back! It’s our first episode for 2018 and after surveying our Facebook group, the consensus was ‘we want more productivity tips’! They ask, we try to deliver. In this episode we share these ten:

  1. Focus on happiness
  2. Block yourself from social media (using Carly’s patented combination of the Forest and Self-control apps)
  3. Start an accountability log
  4. Take advantage of the Zeigarnik Effect
  5. Associate a task with an unrelated task
  6. Get good sleep
  7. Schedule out your to-do list
  8. Make sure you have buffer times in your days
  9. Make time for daily exercise
  10. Just start
