Organizing my Mind - Wrap Up

For the past four weeks I’ve been using tips from Daniel Levitin and THE ORGANIZED MIND to help me organize my work day more efficiently. As Digital Marketing Manager, multi-tasking is part of my job, but implementing the following practices challenged me to create a more productive schedule.

  1. Manage my time by implementing an on/off work schedule.
  2. Use my off time to re-energize my body and brain.
  3. Create a “no interruptions” time or “productivity hour” in my schedule.
  4. Get a good night’s sleep every night.

Now for the big question - did it work?

Daniel’s tips really helped me change the way I look at the layout of my work day. Learning that different tasks require different approaches/levels of attention and altering my approach to those tasks allowed me to work more efficiently and made the day a lot less stressful! 

The best part is that these insights are just the tip of the iceberg, THE ORGANIZED MIND covers everything from the kitchen junk drawer to health care to executive office workflow. It’s truly a fascinating and helpful read that I would recommend to anyone looking to add a little more structure into their lives! 

Balancing act.

Organizing my Mind - Week 4

Get a good night’s sleep every night, go to bed and wake up at the same time every day for maximal sleep benefit, and, if you can, leave yourself time for a 10 minute nap every afternoon.
