    2018 Calendar: How to Make This Your Most Productive Year Yet

    2018 Calendar: How to Make This Your Most Productive Year Yet

    2018 – this is going to be your most productive year yet! Or, wait… is that what you told yourself last year? It’s time to stop saying you’re going to be productive and start actually being productive! We’re saying it now: the 2018 calendar year is going to be your most productive one yet.

    With a New Year comes new opportunities, fresh ideas, a clean slate and a renewed goal to increase our impact. It’s also a good time to reflect on the past year and think about what you could’ve done to make it more productive.

    So, are you ready to make this year the most productive one yet? If you need a little help, the Think Board team has got you covered. Here are the best tips and tricks so you can make the 2018 calendar year your most productive year yet.

    Go in With a Positive Mindset

    Your mindset has the power to make or break any situation. How we think about our challenges makes a difference about how we can tackle them. If you go in with a negative mindset, you’re likely to have a negative outcome. But if you go in with a positive mindset and positive thoughts, you’re most likely to see positive results.

    The power of positive thinking is truly amazing. Write down a positive or motivational message to yourself on your Think Board and keep it somewhere you can see every morning. This way, every time you wake up and see your positive message, you already have a positive start to your day.

    One Word: Prioritize!

    When you’re working this 2018 calendar year, make sure you’re prioritizing your work. But first, you can’t prioritize anything unless you have an end goal. You need to know what you want to achieve at the end of the day, week, month, the year or even five years from now.

    We suggest writing down your top three priorities on the Think Board in your home, office or wherever you feel the most creative. While you’re writing down these top three tasks, write down the time frame in which you need them completed by. Resist the urge of writing every small task down, and just stick to the bigger tasks. This will allow you to look at the bigger picture.

    Make a Bucket List

    It always feels nice to have something to look forward too, whether that’s an upcoming vacation or job promotion. We encourage you to write a list of 100 life goals (on your large Think Board so you have plenty of room) you want to achieve. This way, there’s always something to look forward to.

    You can even make this bucket list everything you want to do in the 2018 calendar year. Daydreaming is actually a lot better for your productivity than you think!

    Have Your 2018 Calendar on Display

    Have your calendar somewhere where you see it multiple times a day. Write down your most important tasks on that day; This will help you eliminate other distractions and really focus on what’s important.

    Start your day by tackling your most important task. Once you’ve scratched off the task from your calendar, you’ll feel instant gratification and like you’ve conquered the day. Isn’t being productive fun?
