Chronicle of a Workday

I'm trying to improve my productivity... It's been difficult lately because I've been pretty distracted, not to mention the projects at work aren't exactly inspiring. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean that I should be just as organized and motivated. So, what I'm going to try to do is come up with a plan...a daily plan. I've done parts and pieces of this plan off and on over the last couple of years, but if I get into a habit, maybe I can be more productive in all areas of my life. SO! Here goes:

  • Ferry: Eat Breakfast, Check personal email, blog list, set up goals for ferry ride home
  • At Work: Set tasks for day in Outlook, Check Email by10am, have 1-2 tasks completed by lunch.
  • Lunch: 30 mins (outside when its nice)
  • Early Afternoon: Check Email again, Clear out trouble tickets
  • Late Afternoon: Brainstorm, Fun Stuff planning

I read somewhere that email has become more of a hindrance than a help, and I'm starting to believe that. I also read that everyone has a different cycle of productivity and I think this system will work for me.

So, that's it today.
