How to Increase Productivity

Here’s a simple exercise to increase productivity. I found it by accident. At work, I am given paper all day, printed on one side, to keep track of the day’s events. The papers are usually thrown in the trash at the end of the day.

For a while, I just hung onto the papers, and used the blank side to write on. some people doodle on the other side.

I began writing to-do notes.

Then more to do notes. Then ideas.

After a couple of years, i’m so conditioned to standing there and writing to do notes and ideas, that sometimes I go through three or four sheets that other people didn’t use. I can get a lot of work done now, come up with ideas when I have down time.
