I thought I would share some articles that I’ve read recently that I found thought provoking about productivity and working effectively.

6 Tips to Get More Time on Your Side:  (From Stepcase Lifehack)  The idea of checking email less often is a big tool that I’ve used to help others get control of their day.  Personally, I have gotten back into the habit of planning my day the night before so I hit the ground running right away.  It’s helped me get back on track and increased my productivity.

Are you planting ‘temporary tree’ solutions?:  (From The Organized Executive’s Blog) How often have you been involved in getting something in place to fix a problem that then failed in the long haul?  This is a fantastic look at why temporary fixes have a place yet have a built in failure point.  I can totally relate to the analogy because I had a Bradford Pear fall down due to high wind.
