We are headed into a long Holiday weekend here in the United States.
Many people are taking today off before the 4-day Thanksgiving holiday. (And yes, some people will be working this weekend.)
You may have a long list of things you want to do during your time off. Or maybe you have a list of things you don’t want to do.
Regardless of your circumstances, I hope you make sure to enjoy the time you do have.
We all have something to catch up on.
Perhaps, a task that has been hanging out on your todo list for too long. Or an item that has been on your Someday List forever.
What do you need to catch up on?
Ever have one of those days when you just can’t seem to get out of first gear?
Your actions seem to being going from slow to slower.
Do you need something to pick-up your productivity today?
Read on, for “12 Quick Productivity Pick-Me-Ups.”

There are a number of pitfalls that the majority of team leaders fall into that cause time to be wasted in organizations.
Many teams are proud of their ability to get things done, but are they as effective as they could be?
How many todo lists do you keep?
(You do have one, right?)
While it’s important to keep a todo list, it’s equally important that you keep only one list.
Just the word makes many people shiver.
Email has become a scourge in many workplaces.
Too many emails flooding your inbox, poorly written notes, and senseless Reply-All copies.
The good news is that email can be a productive tool if you follow some common sense tactics.
Is your desk clean, right now?
Would it be something you would want your boss (or team members) to see?
It is easier than you think to keep your area clean and tidy.
The simplest way to keep your workspace in order is to practice the ABC method of organization.
“I don’t have time for time management.”
I hear this excuse often from those who aren’t taking control of their time and life.
Instead, they use the “too busy” excuse to put off getting organized and being more productive in their daily activities.
If this is you, today I have 10 tiny time management tips that you can fit into your too busy day.
In your search for productivity, are you constantly changing up your game?
Always trying new techniques, tools, and the latest gadgets?
This constant state of flux can actually make you less productive.
Perhaps, you need more of the “same” to get things done today.
