Have you been wanting to be more productive throughout the day but aren't sure where to start? Here are a few things I would recommend:
1. Think When
What time(s) of day do you feel most inspired and/or motivated?
What is it about this time that makes you more productive (freshness of a new day, having a break, time by yourself, no distractions, kids are at school, spouse at work, etc.)?
2. Think Where
Where do you feel most inspired and/or find yourself to be more productive?
Is it in a coffee shop, in a certain spot in your house, in a local library, at the park, at the beach (if you live close enough to the beach to be there at least twice a week, I'm jealous), on a patio?
3. Think Who
Do you work better alone or with other people?
Do you need to be by yourself or does the company of like-minded people spark your creativity?
Note: This may vary depending on what you're working on.
4. Think Why
What purpose is the task fulfilling?
What is the underlying motive?
What need is it meeting?
Who is it benefiting?
Is it a part of a short-term or long-term goal?
