As an accountant for 25 years, Erika prides herself on staying on task and doing everything by the book. However, as the manager, the number and types of daily tasks she has to keep organized have vastly increased.
She has direct reports, who ask her accounting questions, tech questions, and need to schedule one-on-one meetings with her. On top of being a manager of people, Erika also has business management responsibilities. She works on special projects — the part of her job which she enjoys the most because she says those projects “fuel her.”
To stay on top of all of these moving parts, Erika needs to strategize, plan, and follow through. The productivity tips in the Masterclass are designed to bring order to just this type of workplace challenge. On a personal level, Erika also has goals to improve her health and make decluttering “less of a chore, more natural, and just easier.”
Says Erika, “increasing productivity and motivation go hand-in-hand. Everything Marcey covers helps me figure out how to better integrate my work life and my personal life, so I feel motivated whether I’m doing a work project or working on myself.”
