Productivity Planner – Best for the procrastinators
Developed by Intelligent Change, the productivity planner not only looks great but is also highly effective. Utilising the Pomodoro principle, a scientifically proven technique used by some of history’s most successful people, the productivity planner helps you minimise distractions to do more in less time, and more importantly do it better!
The planner itself is made of up of daily to-do pages each deliberately limited in space to prevent you from writing an unmanageable list and feeling the subsequent disappointment that follows not being able to achieve an unrealistic target. For each task you set yourself, you are required to set a time goal in which to complete it. With spaces to record your times and score your overall daily productivity, the secret to the productivity planner’s success is that it not only challenges you to beat your targets but to evaluate the way you work. By not just making a to-do list but actually setting and evaluating time targets you’ll quickly learn how to transform those distracted and unaccomplished days of procrastination into six months’ worth of productivity. Sound good? Get yours here.
