Productivity with the 1-3-5 Rule

Being your own boss has many benefits, but controlling your productivity relies solely on you. Everyone has a different method that works to keep tasks, big and small, in mind. Some of you may still be searching for that method, so I am sharing the one that works for me.

I have a weekly meeting with a fellow creative business woman where we discuss all things business in our lives and how our jobs relate to our families and the time we have to make things happen. She suggested this 1-3-5 method from The Muse and I have been using and loving it for almost a year.

I usually write 2 lists: one for business and one for personal. I try to write them the night before, but my brain definitely works better in the morning, so I generally create my tasks early in the day.  Some days are more ambitious than others and a task or two can carry over into the next day (or the next!) The daily list-making of both large and small TO-DOs keeps my business and personal responsibilities easier to accomplish.

Do you have a method that keeps you productive and sane? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
