Ahhhhhh the joy of summer sunshine, windy breezes, smell of fresh flowers, and a longing for vacation. The sense of summer is something deeply and anxiously waited for when you have been working consistently hard every day all year. The taste of summer begins to sound so sweet, unfortunately that is until reality hits that even in summer you still have to put in work. However, because we have been putting in work all year, and are dying for a break our work quality can begin to slow up because of it. Or Maybe we just came back from that week long vacation with no emails, or demands, and are having a hard time getting back into the swing of things.
Either way we look at it if we are not careful with how we are going about the demands of working, and balancing our desire to enjoy summer, our productivity can suffer tremendously. There is truth though that you can learn how to balance being productive and also getting to enjoy your summer.
Productivity can be managed on a daily basis, by keeping daily goals of things that you wish to get done. Having something to accomplish daily will assure you that you are actually doing something to productively do something that needs to be done. Whether that something is for your job, children, friends, or even for yourself, make a plan and do at least one thing each and everyday.
Make sure that you are managing time, so that you don’t end up wasting a lot of time on something that shouldn’t take that long. If you are more aware of the time that you are spending on each task, that will in turn help you to plan your day with the most time consuming task first.
