I found that I am most productive within the first 2 hours of each work day so at the end of each day I like to make sure I am set up for a successful tomorrow.
One of most helpful things I have found over the past few years is to make a list for everything I need to accomplish for the next day. How to keep it real? I only use Post-It notes to make sure my list is reasonable and something I can accomplish.
It is surprisingly satisfactory to cross things off the list. When things are really crazy – lists help keep priorities in line as well.
Feeling stressed or overwhelmed in the AM? Try grabbing a Post-It note and making a reasonable list!
