Scheduling and Organization for Productivity

Posted by Pixelhead

I was just reminded of the post I had done for the Meme The Ultimate Guide to Productivity Group Writing Project

when I read 137 Parts To The Ultimate Guide to Productivity, which is a summary post that lists 137 posts that have been written in response to the meme. Logo for Instigator Blogs Ultimate Writing Project
My original post, Passion and Productivity, is still a work in progress that I hope to rewrite in the future.

Anyway, I had been on DawudMiracle this past weekend, and loved his post that tells how he doubled his income in two months. And then today, I found the post about Writing Project, and found Dawud’s post for the meme entitled How To Stay Focused For Greater Productivity. Looking at both of these posts, I am getting the feel that Dawud is so successful not only because he writes some great posts that inspire others, but does by using schedules, both short term(daily)and longterm(monthly).

For his daily schedule, he breaks it up into chunks and works for 50 minutes at a time. He then takes 8 minutes off and two minutes of every hours is used to get situated back at his desk.

This guy is amazing, I wish I was this organized.

So now I need to ponder? How do I get more organized. What do I need. A clock, a schedule, and a purpose.

Anyway, it is now late, I started this post early in the morning, and it is now time for bed. Tomorrow I get organized.

Got any tips for organization for me?

I use small yellow stick-up notes to get organized on what to do next.

The advantage is that i can move any notes up or down according to priority just like on a PDA but i’m just so use to those yellow stick on notes.

Dave,
That sounds like a good system. I have been using lists on note pads, but I seem to keep loosing the note pads. But we did just move into our second floor office, and it does seem like I might be able to keep a little more organized here than at the kitchen table.

I see that this is an old post but I am really struggling with keeping focus and staying organized so I am very interested in what solution you have come up with and how it is working for you. I’m heading over to dmiracle now to see what he has to say ;)

Very nice buddy. A good system indeed. I have tried many ways to keep my work organised but in vain, most of them didn’t work for me. I’ll try to go with this system.
