To help you tackle your projects in a state of working-in-flow (the bliss of it! yuuuum) I created a free printable for you.
You fill in the 1-2-3 projects that most need your undivided attention today. Then you’ll decide what you’ll do in the (short) breaks between bursts of concentration.
I included ideas what to do on break-time.
There are two versions for download:
- with graphics
- without graphics, to save on ink and bandwidth
Just right-click on the graphic and choose “save file as: ….”.
More than 3 projects?
- If you have time for more than 3 flow-working states, I’d enter the time for a project as “3 x 40 minutes” or similar.
- Don’t pick more than 3 projects, it will just make you feel frazzle-brained. (Speaking from experience here ;-)
- Instead, keep 1-2 hours of working time unaccounted for in the Challenge and tackle the smaller todo’s in that time.
Tip I learned from productivity coach Michelle over at Bombchelle:
Buy a cheap glass frame you like, print out the worksheet and put it behind glass. Now you can fill it in each day with an erasable marker pen and don’t have to print it out again each day. That’s what I’m doing and that’s why I like printables with graphics.
