HOW TO BE PRODUCTIVE EVERYDAY

How to be productive every day when you have a bajillion and one things to handle? Spoiler alert: Scroll to the bottom to discover my secret 🙂 

How to manage your time when literally it seems to fly out the window as soon as you {and the kids} wake up?

How to get more done when you barely have the energy or the inclination to do the bare minimum?

When I started writing this post, I sat at the laptop and banged out an introduction. Then, I deleted it.

Here’s the thing… I’ve already talked about time management tips for parentpreneurs, have uncovered some long-standing myths about managing time and have even, written an eBook to help you make more impact with less work.

What else can I do to help you be more productive everyday, without fail, with ease and for sure?

What can I give you, short of coming home and doing the stuff that sucks the time out of your day, to help you free up time for what really matter?

How can I help you more?

Then, it hit me.

Systems and $$$. 

That’s it.

  • Systems that give you your time back.
  • Systems that show you how you can actually implement everything you’ve learnt and reclaim your days.
  • Systems that automate stuff so you don’t have to do them ever again.
  • $$$ to help you get the resources and help you need.
  • $$$ to invest in growing your business and freeing your time without the guilt.

Imagine how incredible your days will be when you no longer have to stress over missing deadlines, forgetting stuff to do, or dropping the ball on critical, cannot-be-undone kinda things, both at home and at work.

Picture how stress-free you’ll feel when you know that you finally and for sure have your time management under control.

Oh, the incredibly exhilarating freedom of actually knowing how to be productive everyday, without fail.

Systems that Show you How to be Productive Everyday… for Sure

It’s no secret that I love productivity. I love getting more done. I’m a typical Type A, ISFJ who thrives on routines and systems.

However, recently Mayank and I were feeling the need {or more like, seeing the unignorable signs!} to overhaul our systems for working out, for  simpler things, like cleaning different parts of the house and also, for our blogging.

We brainstormed, like we usually do, and came up with a bunch of strategies that we could implement.

Then, we flipped open our fave must-have resources for every entrepreneurial family from the latest Ultimate Homemaking Bundle

The Homemaking Bundle is over for now… but you can snag other sweet steals of a deal by popping in your details below… Go on, do it… Who doesn’t like a chance to save some cash? 🙂

The Family Systems eBook

Hilary Erickson has ALL the possible systems you need down pat. She gives you actionable ways to automate just about anything. Including those pesky health checks that I nearly always forget and ooh, my fave one on planning workouts.

The Makeover Your Calendar course by Crystal Paine

This wonderfully simple-to-implement 7-Day eCourse by Crystal of MoneySavingMom helped me see how I could use Google Calendar better. I mean, I was already using it for a bunch of stuff.

Crystal helped me systemize it so everything was in one easy-to-access place and well-coordinated with my Passion Planner.

The Motivated Moms Chore Planner

One of the systems we needed to redesign and get on top of was household chores, regular cleaning stuff that helps your house look and feel like a home but doesn’t have you curled up in a corner wanting to die.

The Motivated Moms Chore planner is what we decided on. Weekly checklists of everything you need to do. I mean, every.little.thing. Print and done!

The Little Owls Menu Planner

Menu planning is a system Mayank and I swear by. However, most weeks our menu plans are made on a sheet of notebook paper torn from Manini or my journals. Not the prettiest.

I do have some menu planners I’ve designed for my eBooks, BUT nothing comes close to the incredibly cute menu planners from The Little Owls team.

For one, these are fillable. Next, unlike other plans, she include sections for snacks AND…wait for this… Desserts too. I already feel like she’s my soulmate or as Manini would say… my BFF.;)

So every Sunday evening, Mayank and I sit down and I type out the meals in the plan and print and ta-dah, 15 minutes and we’re done. Plus, having a pretty menu plan on the refrigerator is a great boost to helping you stay on track too. Try it and you’ll know what I mean.

Summer Sanity Savers for the Work-at-Home Mom

… because sometimes you need to take your own advice. That’s right.

Call me weird, but I like to read my own eBooks and give myself a much-needed reminder of the systems I need to set up, tweak, do away with or realign. I always read {and update!} Summer Sanity Savers in the months of April and May because come, June and I’m all set to enjoy a stress-free, productive and profitable summer while having loads of fun with Manini too. Isn’t that the goal of this work-from-home thing?

How to Choose Systems that Help You Be More Productive, Peacefully

Choose a system that works for your family. For us, checklists and automation work well. For you, apps and tools may be better. Like I say, in Productivity 2.0, customize it to suit you and you’ll stick with it longer.

Pick a system that is super easy to implement. If you’ll notice all the systems we chose are dead simple. No fussing around, no complicated set up, uh-huh!! Most of them are fill it, print it, put it into action. That is what you need. Quick, easy and fuss-free.

Stick with a system for at least 6 weeks. Don’t trash the system on the 6th day. There will be some getting used to. You may often, fall of the train and that’s okay. Get back on and stick with it. If you have to tweak it or trash it, do it only after you’ve given it a fair run. For us it’s anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. You could go with 3 weeks but nothing less than that.
