How to Have a Productive Summer

As the temperature rises and the days grow longer, it's tempting to let the allure of summer pull us away from our responsibilities. However, with the right mindset and a few practical strategies, you can harness the energy of the season and actually boost your productivity. Read on for our favorite tips and tools to get started.

  1. Re-evaluate your goals and write them down. Whether they are professional or personal, studies show you are more likely to achieve goals when they are written down. The process of putting pen to paper helps you recognize more clearly what your goals are and motivates you to act on them. First a notebook! Check some of Team OOO's favorites below.

  2. Take advantage of the Summer Slow Down: Consider taking this time to enhance skills or learn something entirely new.

  3. Consider tools such as time blocking. This scheduling technique helps boost productivity and minimizes distraction by organizing your day into specific blocks of time dedicated to specific tasks. Learn more about time blocking here.

  4. Take a vacation! Whether it's action-packed or low-key, we can all agree that taking time off is not only crucial to work/life balance, but increases productivity. In fact, according to Allison Gabriel, an assistant professor of management at Virginia Commonwealth University, “When you are constantly draining your resources, you are not being as productive as you can be. If you get depleted, we see performance decline. You’re able to persist less and have trouble solving tasks.” Source: LinkedIn
