Get more done faster? Who wouldn’t like to do that? I’d love to be able to have more time on my hands to pursue the things I love. Instead, I sometimes get bogged down with ‘have-to-dos’ that leave less time for ‘want-to-dos’, if you get my drift.

So began my quest for simple productivity ideas and here’s a pretty infographic I found  by Yumi Sakugawa. The beauty of this lies in how completely doable these ideas are.

The one I like the most is – focus on three tasks per day. It doesn’t mean that you do only three things a day (now that would be bliss!) – the key word is ‘focus’.   I’ve tried this now and then and find that not only do I get more done in the day, but I also feel less guilty about all the things I’ve not accomplished from my long to-do list. I need to make this a regular habit now.

The other tip I am going to try out is the calendar of x’s. I’m a visual kind of person and this will certainly help me with the one (or two) tasks I simply must do every day – walk and write.


Which one of these would you like to try out? Or which one of these have you been practising regularly?
