Natalie’s Quick & Dirty Tips for Staying On Track During The Day.
One of our mottos is that we get $h*t done. And we do. Erryday!
Here are 3 of our favorite quick & dirty tips to help us keep on track.
1. Schedule everything. Thank God for Google Calendar! We schedule meetings, phone calls, reminders, and to-do’s…some of us even schedule in breaks and lunch! And don’t forget to schedule in an extra half hour or so to give yourself a cushion for the unexpected stuff that always seems to come up.
2. Don’t just plan your day, plan your week. We have tools in place to help ensure that we have our clients’ schedules planned out for at least an entire week. We have a content planning calendar, we schedule tweets and Facebook posts in advance, and we even use BoardBooster to schedule pins. Without all this pre-planning and scheduling, we wouldn’t be able get everything done. The thought of it sends chills down my spine.
3. Quit drowning in the day-to-day crap. Checking emails constantly, getting sidetracked by things that can wait, and checking your personal social media accounts can bog down your day quickly. When you are building your schedule, give yourself a few extra minutes here and there to do those things. Then you will be able to focus on the big stuff instead of putting out fires that are barely burning.
Conclusion: It’s all about the schedule and pre-planning. You can be super productive and get a lot of $h*t done as long as you stay focused.
