Productivity Chores

A messy desk with countless sticky notes and random accessories beside an open laptop.

Many ordinary things you do (or don’t do) can indirectly but significantly affect your productive output.

Cleaning up your office and desk to create a more pleasant working environment can help you focus better and get more done.

Organizing your documents and folders can reduce your friction when tackling a critical task.

Updating your systems and apps keeps your data safe and secure.

Keeping your business books and finances in order can help you understand where your business is going better, so you can make corrections if needed.

Cleaning up your email inbox will keep you on top of things, reduce your stress levels and free up your mental energy for creative work.

Yes, these can all be seen as chores, but they’re still related to your creative output. Don’t neglect them.
