Staying Productive Before the HolidaysMonday, November 21 Mandelieu-La Napoule, France
I feel like as soon as we're halfway through November, the holiday feeling kicks in. The streets & malls are getting decorated, the days at this point are super short, and as much as I love this time before Christmas, it's sometimes hard to stay produtive & motivated before all the end of year festivities. Here's what I like to do to keep things fresh & going in order to do everything that needs to be done before Holidays!
Declutter your desk / working place
It's an obvious one but keeping your desk tidy is so important, especially during the busiest time of the year when things get cluttered so easily.
Doing one thing at the time is usually more efficient and less time consuming rather than multitasking.
Tidy & organize
It's time to finally go through everything that you've been putting off for the longest time. Think of it as a holiday cleaning.
The 2 minute rule
This is so simple and works wonders. If the task can be done within 2 minutes, do it instantly. You'll be surprised how much time you'll save not having these little tasks building up on your to-do list.
Make a list
Speaking of to-do lists, write down everything that needs to be done in the near future and use it to plan the week ahead.
Take a break
Take time off to keep your mind fresh. Even if for 5 minutes. Stay focused but don't lose the holiday spirit!
