It’s amazing how it always seems like things are so busy at the end of the year. I always get through it by reminding myself that after in the New Year all the chaos will settle down and things will get simpler. Funny thing is, once the New Year comes… it usually brings with it just as much work with less productivity. Not this year, however. I made it my personal goal this year to go into the New Year with a plan to keep up the productivity.
Make A Plan
Take things just a step further than the usual New Years resolution and craft a plan that will help you accomplish the goals that you need to conquer this New Year. Your plan should include steps that you are going to take in order to achieve your goals. It’s a good idea to include a task list in your plans as well.
Get Things Done Early
Don’t wait until the last minute to get those taxes in, and handle other task that you know you need done in advance. Getting them done early means less of a headache for you in the long run. Have your documents together and organized so that as soon as you have every piece you need you are ready to go. No digging through piles of paper to find that one missing piece of the puzzle.
Speaking of piles, of documents, get rid of them! Reducing clutter is always a great way to stay productive. Sort through the papers you actually need, and the ones that are just junk. Don’t need them? Shred them! The Fellowes 79Ci shredder makes this process quick and easy. The Patented 100% Jam Proof System eliminates paper jams and powers through tough jobs. It runs quietly for an extended 20 minute run time, thanks to the SilentShred Technology.
Have piles of documents with staples and paper clips?
Not to worry!
The 79Ci has Heavy-Duty Cross-Cut blades that can cut through 16 sheets of paper per pass PLUS staples, paperclips, credit cards, junk mail, and CDS! Energy and safety are also not a problem. The Patented SafeSense Technology automatically stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening. The Energy Savings System maximizes shredder efficiency 100% of the time, both in and out of use.
These are just a few of the ways that you can keep your productivity on pace in the new year. Do you have other ways of staying on track? Share in the comments below!
