It is February already and 2017 is going fast! If you feel like your goals, resolutions and projects that you had planned are getting away from you, it’s time to get back on track. We’re going to be looking at the little things that will help you reach your goals and how MessageMia can help.
Whatever your ambitions are you need the same tools to achieve them. One of the first and most important is that you need time.
We’re all busy. We all need to sleep and eat though some people seem to squeeze more into the day than others. Time management isn’t magic however. We all get the same number of hours in the day. Not that we are advocating cutting your sleep down to 2 hours a day or avoiding friends and family. There are lots of spare pockets of time in the day that you can take advantage of.
In the famous book Getting Things Done, David Allen uses time based to do lists. When you break your to-do list up by the amount of time it will take to achieve each task you make it much easier to pick up the right tasks at the right time. You can easily distinguish between tasks that might take a day, need an hour or be done in five minutes.
Another cornerstone of Allen’s philosophy is the idea of capturing your to do’s. Really organised people always know what they have going on, don’t drop the ball on any tasks and avoid procrastination by knowing exactly what they need to do next.
MessageMia helps you make note of your to dos. Whenever and wherever you remember them. Even if that is somewhere inconvenient like while you are driving. With MessageMia you can brain-dump your to do list on your morning commute and have the transcription in your email inbox by the time you reach the office.
Your commute is a great time to make progress on your goals. Time that would otherwise be wasted can be reclaimed and made useful. As well as making notes with MessageMia about your new project or ambition, you can use your commute productively by listening to relevant podcast or audiobooks. Many people spend an hour a day or even more driving to and from work and this is valuable time you could be using to learn, research your ideas and be inspired.
MessageMia is your hands-free to do list for productivity while you are on the road.
