Processes & Productivity Tips From Four Highly Organised Individuals
Everyone has their tips & tricks that ensure they remain as productive as possible. We asked four highly organised & successful individuals about their processes & productivity tips - make sure you have a notebook ready, we loved their tips & know you will too.
Georgie Duddy, After The Rock Weddings
“I go away each quarter for 2 days – removing myself from the office and the normal runnings of day to day life and set goals for the business during those times. It’s non-negotiable and locked in at the start of each year so it cannot be changed. I also reassess After the Rock quarterly with a group of business owners where we prepare reports and give advice on different aspects of each other's businesses. It’s set up like a board meeting with each business in the hot seat for 2 hours each. It truly is invaluable to get that helicopter perspective.”
Ed West, POHO Flowers
“I started by creating a space I was proud of and actually wanted to walk into everyday. Each day I leave my desk the way I want to find it the next morning.”
“It’s taken me a long time to work this one out but my ultimate key to an organised life is a healthy work/life balance and creating clear lines between the two. I make sure to allocate time for myself, friends, family and most importantly technology free time. This makes my time overall more organised, productive and enjoyable”
Emma Lewisham, Founder of Emma Lewisham
“I’m big on taking the time to think something through before just doing it, busy doesn’t always mean productive! Ask yourself “what is the outcome of what I am doing?” If you don’t know, it’s a sure sign you should move on."
Josh Emett, Chef
“I like to have a routine and plan the week ahead. Most mornings I exercise which sets me up for the day and gets my head in the right space, I like to run through my key objectives for day whilst having a coffee and then head to meetings and actioning my to-dos!”
