Upwork, one of the leading freelance marketplaces on the web allows employers who may not have the funds or office space to hire a writer or graphic designer. Upwork’s business model came because of an issue that co-founder Stephane Kasriel had in wanting to hire an overseas partner. Although his team was hesitant at first, they knew he was the best man for the job. This got Stephane thinking, maybe other companies have this problem, and the rest is history. Today Upwork is one of the most trusted freelance companies out there. The company doesn’t just provide a platform for companies to hire virtual employees, it also gives back to its consumers through their blogs. Here’s a quick example of one of the more popular blogs titled “ten powerful tips for sailing through your to-do list“.
Write everything down
Often we decide that we won’t write everything down cause surely we’ll remember, and you might actually do, however, David Allen, the writer of the GTD method talks about how we should write everything down due to a human psychological effect called the Zeigernik Effect. What this means is that tasks that are not properly organized and go incomplete tend to run around our brains and constantly distract us. His final recommendation, write it down, put it on an app but don’t think your great memory will save you from this effect.
Keep your List in one place
Technology is great, but when you have an app for every task it makes it very hard for your brain to decide which is the most important and in addition where you placed the task in the first place. Either place everything on one app or go with O’l reliable and write it done on a piece of paper. This method is easier said than done as we’re constantly movie, but it’s a habit that will elevate your productivity.
