Rethink How to be More Productive

Flexible Productivity

I am a full-time working mom of two young boys. Like most working parents I have a busy life and struggle to juggle family and work on a daily basis. I am lucky to be able to work from home which allows me greater flexibility in how I achieve this balance. But I am still conscious of my most precious and limited resource – time.
I want to spend more of it doing things I love, whether they be personal, family, or work related. To achieve this I am constantly seeking to optimize my daily tasks. Starting a load of laundry requires a trek to the basement from my second floor office, so I maximize my trips by piling other items that need to be shifted downstairs on top of dirty clothes baskets. I stack items that need to go up into baskets at the foot of the stairs to keep trips up and down to a minimum.

Several years ago (about the time I had kids) I stopped going to grocery stores altogether. I now order my groceries online from my phone and often try to do this during typically "unproductive" moments, like waiting at my sons' karate practice. I love turning what are, to me, low-value chunks of time into productive moments. More often than not, my mobile device is at the center of these mini-coups of personal productivity. Even if you don't find the act of maximizing your time as rewarding as I do, I'm sure you'd still love to reclaim more time in your day to do things that are meaningful to you!

Mobile Moments

Sitrion ONE allows you to create these moments of productivity in your workday. Imagine those 3-5 minutes you spend, sometimes several times a day, waiting on conference calls or in meeting rooms. Those can become moments of productivity spent on preparing for the meeting, reading the latest industry news, approving workflow tasks, or tracking time or expenses. Any business process that you participate in can be broken down into a series of component steps, many of which can be tackled in a matter of minutes. So why not access those approvals, notes, or tracking tasks from your mobile device and convert those moments into productive ones?
It's not about working every minute of the day; it's about flexibility to empower you to spend your best time on quality work. It's about having the flexibility to work from anywhere, at any time, to allow you to define your own balance.
