Public holidays are great, but not when you return to an out-of-control workload that has fallen behind schedule. This July 4th, use iMindMap 11 to get ahead and enjoy switching off fully for the holiday. Work between 7 unique workspaces to get a visual overview of your priorities and take a tight rein of what you need to achieve before turning on your out-of-office. With your work left in good order, you’ll be able to pick things straight back up when you return, feeling well-rested and more productive than ever.
Read on for 3 ways you can take control of your summertime productivity.
When you’ve got a lot of things to get done and a deadline looming, sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. In Fast Capture View, you can take a quick and painless first step towards conquering your workload. With minimal effort, pour what’s left to be done into a self-forming Bubble Web. According to a study by Dominican University in California, simply noting down these tasks will spark your motivation to get them done. When you’re ready, switch from Bubble Web to Bubble Groups mode and start to categorise related tasks together. Before you know it, you’ll have a much clearer idea of which tasks to tackle first and how best to move forward.
Use Mind Map View to build an overview of your current workload. You can use icons to mark the status of specific projects or tasks using a traffic light colour system. By creating this birds-eye-view of your responsibilities, you’ll be able to assess what needs to be finished before you leave the office and which areas will require your most urgent attention on your return. Add any images, documents and web links to your Mind Map that will help you to jump straight back into your work after your break. Update your colleagues by exporting your Mind Map as an image or PDF and sharing it via email.
When you get back to the office, make the most of feeling refreshed. Use this opportunity to take another look at stagnant projects that need reviving. Use Split Screen mode to view a stale, unfinished project alongside a past project that brought you success. With this fresh perspective, you’ll start to spot links between your thinking. Drag and drop relevant points from one project to another and reignite the project that fell off track. With this fresh batch of motivation, you’ll be amazed by what can be achieved.
