If you’ve been listening to recent ProBlogger podcasts, you’ll know the last two episodes featured questions I asked listeners: how are you? (as part of the biggest lesson I’ve learned in blogging in 2015), and what is your why?
In today’s episode, I ask a third question: how are you using your time?
Knowing your why gets you started on the road to success, but how you you use your time is how you’re going to get to your destination. Over the years, I’ve realised I need to do some analysis on how I spend my time and come up with some strategies to use my time more effectively.
Today’s podcast is all about the 7 productivity tips I’ve used, particularly over the last year, to help harness my time and stop wasting it.
From getting an overview of your working habits initially, to what I’ve learned about how I spend my time, the tools I’ve used to track my online habits, and how I’ve figured out what the best use of my time actually is, these 7 tips should get you on the right track to your destination. I also share my new, revised weekly schedule, how I devised it, and give you ideas about how you can create your own.
We also discuss the workflows, systems and routines that help me automate small, achievable steps. I’m less overwhelmed, I’ve eliminated decision fatigue, and I’ve learned to delegate or outsource where necessary.
