Productivity in progress

So everyone has had time to settle into any New Years sewing resolutions that they have set for themselves, hows yours going? Mine is a little long winded and I'll fill you in on it in the next few weeks but the first step was becoming more organised and productive with my time. With that first goal in mind I procrastinated like a mad thing, looking online for ideas that will make me get up off my butt and do something I love (anyone else out there have that problem?) I eventually...2 or 3 cups of coffee later, came across this site productive flourishing it may be old hat to some of you but, to go all hippy on you here, it resonated with me :) So I had a mooch about and found some free downloads to try out "Hmmmm freebies why not?" so off to the printer I went. After some colouring in (I kid you not) I discovered Him in doors and I are active/creative at totally different points in the day, fun to know but not really getting me anywhere new at this point, so I printed out some more bits and have been trying them out this week.

Told you I got to colour in!

I'm using the Weekly planner and the Daily planner along with a Productivity Heatmap (Yeah I sew late into the night!) You can find them Here if you fancy giving them a try too. I like that they are task based and not time based, if you use the 3 together you get a much better idea of when to schedule things into your day so you'll actually be able to do them. I do have to say I'm not affiliated with this guy or his site in any way, I just stumbled across it and thought it might help some of you out so I'm sharing :)
Like I say I've been using them for a few days and right now they are helping, I'll let you know further down the line how I find them after a few weeks :D If you do fancy trying them out let me know how you get on.


  1. Heh, well as it's only me, myself and I that I'm accountable, it's pretty easy for me to point the finger to who causes my lack of productivity at any one time ;o)

  2. I'm most productive and mst awake in the evening, having yawned my way through most of the day. Sadly it means I don't go to bed when I should ... The cycle repeats!!


Chat away - I enjoy reading comments and will respond here or by email :)
