It’s December which means we can officially talk about the upcoming festive time. As Productivity Ninjas we understand how stressful this time can get. It’s hardly ever as relaxing as they show us in movies, but a weapon-savvy Productivity Ninja can plan ahead and ensure a smooth end of the year.
It doesn’t just get busy planning for family festivities, but with the new year being just around the corner, offices will feel the end of year stress too.

I’m looking forward to this time next year, hopefully I’ll be reflecting on a really good year and i’ll have smashed all my goals 🙂
Brilliant! With that attitude, you’ll definitely achieve everything you want to achieve.
Next year I will still have the same job but things are shifting in my department so I am going to take my chance to get rid of things I don’t like anymore (done doing it too long) and start new exciting projects. A fresh start!
What an exciting time, Mieke. A great opportunity to implement new ways of working and to give yourself and your team a nice productivity boost.
I am most looking forward to getting a new team member in 2017 and being able to train them up.
I am currently trying to nail down getting a weekly review timetabled in – quite difficult when I work part time and my working days sometimes change!
How exciting, Rachel.
And well done for sitting down and setting up a review schedule – it might be difficult at first but it’ll be so helpful in the long-term. Keep up the great work!
