The reference materials to improve personal productivity could be endless. I am a fan of maximising my time to give myself the option for opportunities. There is no blueprint for this and nor is there any reason everyone should do it. Here are a few ideas for those who want to try new things to increase their personal productivity.
Some people love grocery shopping and others will go when that rotten banana is the only convenient food left over to eat and others simply dislike supermarkets.
Online grocery order and home delivery is a great option. Coles, Woolworths and Aldi are examples of the big supermarkets offering delivery services. There is usually one day a week dedicated to free delivery for orders over $100 and roughly an $8 fee for delivery other days or below $100. Grocery Butler is another example of home delivery services.
In my review of Coles home delivery or pick up, the produce has always been fresh and eggs never broken in nearly two years using the service. Every few months Coles throw in sample foods to try, bonus!
Lists can help you stay within a boundary of things to do to avoid becoming overwhelmed and to create space for your own time. Here are a few ideas:
1. Written list
2. Phone calendar with reminders set
3. Diaries are also useful for scheduling out time and things to do
4. I have recently downloaded Momentum from Chrome. If you use the Google Chrome browser, I find this tool useful. Momentum is a free app from Chrome. It provides a to do list, key activity for the day, personalised message to you and a motivational quote
4. Another Google Chrome tool is Dayboard. This is a list tool that focuses on your 5 main tasks each day. This is a homepage application, so every time you home your homepage, your list is there to remind you.
For the people who read many sites on their computer daily
If you are one of those people that scan websites that are important to you on a daily basis, have you considered arranging all of the information in one place when you open your home page? Start.me could be the solution for you. This tool allows you to glance at the web information you always seek out in one place. Consider it your personal dashboard.
There are so many other useful tools. I particularly like the Chrome apps. Write your tips in the comments section about how you maintain your personal productivity.
