Do you feel like you’re working on everything and completing nothing? Running around in circles and somehow still letting things fall through the cracks? You’re not alone! In this presentation, we’ll discuss our experiences using strategies and tools for time management and productivity. We’ll talk about how to tackle today’s workplace issues, such as battling the overflowing email inbox, organizing digital clutter, prioritizing tasks, setting realistic expectations, and minimizing distractions with mindfulness. We’ve read up on current strategies and applied them to our own work, and we’ll present what was effective and what wasn’t (as well as what we’re still working on improving). We’ll also open it up to the audience to discuss their own productivity tips and workplace efficiency experiences.
