Recently I wrote a post about How my new schedule made me super productive, which became quite the popular post. Now that article was specific about how I block my time for certain tasks which has allowed me to get larger amounts of work done and also increased my focus (believe me, I was a true scatterbrain normally). Apparently, I was not alone when dealing with the issue of focus and I received feedback from people both on this blog and in emails from people telling me the difficulty they have in getting things done. I decided today's topic was going to discuss some advice I have for aiding focus and being more productive in general.
Have you found yourself struggling to get things done in a timely manner? After I failed my monthly goals in July, I decided I needed to try something new. I have more tasks and work requirements on my plate now, but still the same 24 hours in a day. So something needed to change. So in August, I instigated a new schedule to see if that would help. And wow did it ever! This was why I managed to complete almost all of my August goals and started a few new projects. The biggest surprise was writing 14k for my new WIP in just 3 days.
