This Very Efficient Woman Shares Her Top Tips for Prioritising
The founder of iconic stationery and lifestyle company, kikki.K, is as organised, efficient, and productive as you’d imagine. Kristina Karlsson, the Swedish mastermind behind the functional and inspirational brand—and self-confessed stationery lover—puts her success down to prioritising and always finding new ways to work smarter. “I absolutely love to systemise! I’m always looking for new ways to help me work productively and embrace that calm, in-control feeling that comes from efficiently managing my time,” say Karlsson. “No matter how busy I get, I try to stick to a few key things to ensure I’m being efficient, which gives me more time to spend on other important things in my life, like my family or ‘me time’.” Read on to find out Karlsson’s best tips for prioritising.
“Every quarter I set my top three priorities on what would make the highest impact on the business, and book time in for that in my diary to make sure I focus on what is the most important.”
“Every day from 9 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. I work on my top priorities. That time is very focused time where I get no interruptions from my team and I put my phone away and don’t check emails.”
“I use my personal planner for all my notes and to-do lists, so it’s all in one place. I then schedule all the things I need to do in my calendar. What gets scheduled gets done.”
