Today I’m talking about my top time management tips and tools. Have you ever looked back at a long day of work and wondered why you didn't get anything done? I certainly have - there have been many times that I've thought I was being productive, but I was actually spending my time on things that weren't as important to my business.
As the creative director and only designer at Lemon and the Sea, I have a lot on my plate - and I'm sure you do to. That's why it's important to use your time in the best way possible. After all, time is one thing you can't make more of. So how do you increase your productivity when you're trying to do it all? These are some tips I've learned during my time in business (and in architecture school before that - no all-nighters for me).
