Thank you to all of the wonderfully generous women who participated in the Pittwater WiSE ‘pure productivity think tank’ in Palm Beach this morning (also, thanks to the friendly & photogenic kookaburra who flew in to join us … photo courtesy of Kathryn Glendenning). It was a very productive session for information, support and making quality connections.
A great definition of productivity is “yielding positive results”. So our think tank involved collaboration of sharing many ideas of how women in small enterprise can ‘yield positive results’.
In a short space of time we shared a wealth of tips, tools, techniques and other resources to utilise to make ‘work time’ more productive to allow time for all of the other things in life. Afterall, it’s about life balance!
To name just a few: Omnifocus software (for personal task management), follow Julie Morgenstern on Twitter, David Allen free podcasts, Stylebook app, “Master your Workday Now” by Michael Linenberger and The Pomodoro Technique. There were many, many more resources, tips etc discussed but ‘you just had to be there’
