Staying Organized to Build Productivity in 2023

January 23, 2023

Many people have just one New Year’s resolution: get. more. done. Who wouldn’t want to be productive, stay organized, and lessen stress in 2023? But it’s not always easy. Productivity often means creating daily habits that require effort, consistency, planning, and using the right tools to stay organized. Here are a few to get you started.

To-Do Lists

To-do lists are an excellent way to stay organized and maintain productivity. Some people find they are more likely to get tasks done because crossing them off their list creates a sense of satisfaction. If you’re not usually a list maker, start off with a template from Clockify to create a simple and easy-to-follow list. Print it out on Boise X-9 multi-use copy paper and keep it where you’re most likely to see it throughout the day or week. Consider adding a to-do app on your phone to have your lists with you wherever you go, allowing you more flexibility when your day-to-day changes quickly. Check out this list of the best to-do list apps in 2023.


Another simple but effective way to stay productive is to maximize the use of calendars. Keep track of the “big picture” with a large monthly wall or desk calendar to see big events on the horizon. Track meetings on a weekly calendar so you can easily spot your free time and plan for it effectively. And a daily schedule will make sure no short intervals go to waste. Use templates from Printabulls or customize your own using Canva, then print it out using Boise POLARIS premium papers, for colors that are vivid and eye-catching.


If you’re looking for a way to combine all of your daily to-dos, future tasks, calendars, and events in one place, a planner is the way to go. Many of us have been using planners since we were young, but did you know there are ways to optimize their use? In this blog post from Timeular, you can find best practices and tips for organizing your planner, such as setting task priorities or using timeboxing.

As we move into the new year, take time to think about your habits surrounding productivity and task management. How can you be better prepared to tackle 2023?
