From Lack of Passion to Productivity - A Review of Productivity Hacks

It is painful everyday to wake up and to look at my daily schedule. Literally running from meeting to meeting, being asked to solve large-scale problems, and to develop creative ideas to recruit and retain individuals is quite a challenge every day.

For the past few weeks, I've made a concerted effort to wake up extra early to sit on a rug in my bathroom and to stretch and explore a few yoga poses. After my before the sun arises poses have truly made a difference in my daily life. After those few minutes of wellness, I am ready to conquer my day and walk from meeting to meeting!

It seems that millennial moms are some of the most overworked individuals in the workforce. More of them are working mothers (outside of the home), they are responsible for household tasks (shared with their partners), and usually they are tackling several tasks at once.

I wish that I had this book before transitioning to a new semester (of the school year). "Productivity Hacks: A Time Management Plan to Become More Productive" presents several innovative ways for individuals to become better prepared to address their daily activities.

Here are the chapters of the book:

1 - Introduction

2 - Bad Habits That Kill Our Productivity

3 - Set Your Goals

4 - Day-By-Day Plan to Increase Productivity

5 - Conclusion

The book is very organized and well written. Moms, regardless of their experiences, can definitely relate to the lists and tasks presented in the book.

Here are my top 10 favorite tips from the book:

1 - Automate Routine Tasks

2 - Limit Your To Do Lists to 5 Items or Less

3 - Wait for Optimal Work Conditions

4 - Use the Internet Only When the Task Demands It

5 - Take Short Breaks Between Tasks (An hour between tasks is recommended).

6 - Avoid Moral Licensing (Excuses for negative behavior (i.e. - eating unhealthy foods, etc.)

7 - Create a Vision for Your Life

8 - Develop a Personal Mission Statement

9 - Create a Morning/Evening Routine (and practice it each day)

10 - Remember to Include Meals in Your Weekly Schedule

This is definitely a great book for anyone, but especially person who work for large corporations, entrepreneurs, and teachers.
