9 Simple Productivity Tips You Can Do Right Now

It's Friday. It's your last shot to clear off your to-do list so it won't dog you through the weekend. And our friends over at personal-assistants-for-all startup Fancy Hands (which we tried out last year, profiled in March, and which comes with a personal recommendation from Redditor-in-chief Alexis Ohanian himself), want to remind you that YOU CAN DO IT, with this pretty, pastel productivity infographic by Yumi Sakugawa. 

Our favorite tip? Create a giant wall calendar of Xs for tasks you need to do every day--an idea we first heard from Jerry Seinfeld. Check it out below, and then head over to Fancy Hands' Tumblr for more inspiration.

    I love this. What I do also is crating lists, breaking down task into multiple pieces to make them "digestible", and then work my way through. A big incentive then is to see a series of big bold Xs at the end of day. Job done.

    Loving the "focus on three tasks a day" as well as "get your most important task finished first thing in the morning"!

    Focus on a small number of items is the key. By forcing yourself to identify your top priorities you make sure you're working on what matters. That's why we built Teamly: http://teamly.com
