day 15: making a productivity system
Some other planner systems that might appeal to you are the Passion Planner and Planner Pads. We won't be talking about them specifically but you can click through to the links to learn more.
Having a system to keep track of your in-progress projects and to prioritize the most important items is something many of us try to do.
Whether you have a system that has worked for years, or if you're constantly trying something new, hopefully in this series of posts you'll learn a few things.
Some basic system ideas include using a white-board, bulletin board, or sticky notes to keep track of what projects are at the proposal, the analysis, the drafting, or the co-author review stage.
You could also use a spreadsheet (or just a list), or a project management tool like Trello or Monday.
what do planning systems have to do with writing?
Having a plan imparts purpose to your writing.
You can focus on what's at hand instead of worrying if you should be working on something more important.
