This isn't my advice—it's advice from Lauren Fearn, a senior manager on Zapier's core support team who has made improving productivity into something of a science. She presented on her techniques at ZapConnect, our user conference held last month, and we've captured them in a blog article.
Here's what Lauren recommends:
- Timebox your calendar and use swimlanes (a consistent schedule for different types of meetings) to increase focus.
- Categorize tasks and keep them in one place.
- Be intentional about your workday and your team.
And, of course, use automation to make all these things easier. Lauren's article includes links to some of her favorite Zaps with Todoist, Google Calendar, Slack, and Google Tasks.
