Productivity Hacks to get things done

There are many productivity hacks that can help you get more done in less time. One of the things I get asked quite a bit is how I get so many things done. It’s no secret that I write for several blogs, create digital learning content, professionally help solve problems, make art and participate in several events selling said art.

Over the years I’ve been told to just focus on one thing but it’s totally negating the fact that some of us are multi-passionate creatures – perhaps a little neuro-divergent – and we simply get bored only doing that one thing.
