Productivity Tip: Make a Calendar Appointment Listing Your Monthly Goals

Quick Productivity Tip: Each month I create a weekly recurring calendar appointment titled "May Monthly Goals" (where the name of the month varies) on Mondays at 5pm. This appointment serves to remind me what I should be working on this month.

On this list I have actions such as:

Articles to write
Blog posts to write
Topic ideas
Twitter posts
Facebook posts
Projects I'm working on
Follow Up that needs to be done

By reviewing the weekly appointment I am reminded of what I should be doing, not what I want to be doing. Of course I mix in a bit of fun too, but this helps me focus on productivity.
