If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve probably heard me talk about my “downtime productivity”. I’ve had several reference lists and charts in the past, but my new flag mechanism is by far my favorite!
Downtime productivity: tasks I can complete in my spare time or down time that will benefit me some area of my life.
When I find myself binging Netflix, or caught in a YouTube conspiracy theory rabbit hole, the best way to redirect my energy to benefit me and my goals is to complete an item on my downtime productivity list. Here are my personal categories as an example.
Professional: update resume, check LinkedIn, professional progress review, practice special skills, check Indeed
Social Media: blog maintenance, update content calendar, analytics review, respond to dms and comments, brainstorm
Personal: organize/ tidy up, update planners, meditation, workout, skincare
I keep this list in the front of my planner or on my desk for easy reference, but the flags double as reposition-able check list! While I can use this as a reference chart, I can also grab a category and place it on my front dashboard or on my daily inserts if I plan on working on professional tasks for the day.
Want to order? What do you get? Each productivity card is $12 and contains 3 large transparent flags that hold 5 lines of text. You can label each flag (such as professional, social media, or personal) and choose 5 custom tasks for each category You will also receive a ‘highlight’ tab to indicate which item is in progress.
