Secrets from Productivity Nerds


I’m a proud productivity nerd. I can’t help it — it’s who I am and I embrace it. I make lists and get a real sense of joy from crossing off items. But it’s those lists that help me to stay on track and be productive. I’m not alone in this compulsive habit but there are other tactics for getting more done.

I was lucky enough to share some of my own tips with WomansDay.com for the article “8 Habits of Highly Productive People.” Check out the article for some other fabulous secrets from some very knowledgeable experts.

One of my favorites is to snack!  That’s right — eating will increase your productivity.  I’ve never thought of it really but I’m useless unless I’ve eaten. It totally affects my mind.  I’m very regular when it comes to my eating habits – I eat three meals and have two snacks during the day.  If I don’t — my day is totally thrown off.  Ask my co-workers…they know when I haven’t had my snacks!  haha! Making sure you eat regularly is a very easy way to stay productive.  Give it a try and take a look at some of the other great ideas in the article.
