10 Essential Productivity Posts To Read This Weekend

10 Essential Productivity Posts To Read This Weekend
Carly Jacobs

taught a blogging workshop this week in Canberra (it was ACE thanks for asking!) and one of the tips I gave my students was not to hide their killer content. I’ve been a naughty little sausage and I’ve allowed some of my most useful articles to get buried in my archives. So to set you guys up for an awesome weekend I thought I’d pop together a few articles that might inspire you to have a weekend of sorting, organising and taking care of yourself. Grab a cup of coffee and a biscuit (you know you want to) and have a cruise through some of my top productivity posts.

    Awesome round up! Quiet weekend for me – my boyfriend will be spending most of the weekend at PAX (a massive gamer convention) so I’m going to use the quiet home time to catch up and get ahead on a few things 🙂

    My little brother is coming to stay with us for the weekend, but I think mostly to play video games with my husband!! We also have my little 6 year old niece’s birthday lunch. Should be a good weekend!
