How to tackle a never-ending to-do list - 10 proven methods

Recently we heard this from a Nozbe user:

Hi. With Nozbe I became much more productive. So productive, that I have the feeling that what I have to do never ends. I do so many things that before I would have left out and when something is done, there's always many things to be done again. So it never stops. Would be great to have a blog post to discuss this topic, have your point of view and tips to continue to have a work-life balance when you have such a powerful productivity tool in your hands :-).

And so, here are 10 ways to deal with a never-ending to-do list. Follow these tips and enjoy some more free time.

What I've wasted my time on today. And you?

It's Tuesday evening. I called it a day and grabbed a book since I could finally go to bed. Although the book is super interesting I can't focus on it at all. I keep thinking about how unproductive I've been today...

And voilá! Here's a list of things I tend to waste my time on. I wrote it down in order to try to eliminate some silly cases of negligence and counter-productive habits. I hope you’ll make your list too, and try to work on crossing a few or them out.

How to boost your team productivity using kanban - a step-by-step guide

This is another inspiring guest post we got from Robby Miles - our Ambassador, productivity guru and a really good man :-) Read on if you want to boost your team's efficiency by applying a kanban method.

Ask Michael S02E12: public templates

Reinventing the wheel is such a waste of energy. And you just need one thing to prevent this, something that you already have: templates.

Ask Michael 2 ep. 12 cover

There are lots of reasons why you might create public templates. You may have the most altruistic feelings towards the rest of the world and want to be helpful. You may want to offer something useful to your friends or a group of people you identify with, like car enthusiasts. You may also support your audience as a blogger or an authority.

However, there’s nothing wrong if you want to use templates with your affiliate link and earn extra commission in the Nozbe Affiliate Referral program.

It's even better if you publish your template to enter our contest for creators!

Watch now to learn how to make your template public:

8 ways to make the most out of your vacation

A vacation is a great time to do the things you normally (perhaps wrongly) wouldn’t dare to spend your time on. With no 9-to-5 job you get some extra space - both physically and mentally. Unless you’re going on an extreme journey in the Himalayas or something, try to use this time to reset your "hard drive,” charge the batteries and reflect on how to live better, work smarter and be happier :-)

Productive vacation
