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.

    I miss that shredder! I had it through my blog yeas and years ago when I started and it worked awesome but it died about 4-5 years into it! I must get it again because it would be a great addition to my office in this house I am renting with a private office! Reply

    Getting your work knocked out sooner rather than later and keeping everything organized are both key to staying productive. I've always been a self starter, but I had to learn the organization thing the hard way. Reply
