Holy smokes, Freebs, where the heck did summer go?? That said, I'm ready for fall! Bring on the pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING and let's make August rock with a 30 Day Back to Productivity Challenge! #PumpkinFlavoredProductivity
I don't know about you, but the summer months flew by! (Well, the months were short, but the days were sure long…still not sure how that works…)
While I have thoroughly enjoyed the carefree, fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants schedule that summer brings, school is starting again soon (or, has already started for many of you!), and I'm definitely getting the itch to get my life back on a routine. I just know that back-to-school will hit me like a fast-moving BUS if I'm not ready!
*Note: When you click the links in this post, we may receive a commission at no extra cost to you.
Thus, I've decided to use August as my month to get back into a productive routine, get organized, and set up systems for a seamless fall.
This challenge is going to be all that and a bag of chips!! Who's in?

TIPS FOR BACK TO PRODUCTIVITY CHALLENGE SUCCESS
If you're here, like the rest of us, you dream of having time to do the things in life that make you happy. You want more time to play with your kids, take up that new hobby (yodeling, anyone?), and maybe even squeeze in a workout… but you're not sure how you'll ever get everything in between all of the errands, work, chores, and pretty much everything else you have to tackle on a daily basis. Does that sound familiar?
Now, imagine your life in 31 days. You wake up in the morning and you workout immediately because your clothes were laid out the night before. You throw a load of laundry into the washer and head outside to make mud pies with your kids. Your children are ecstatic because you're so much more present in the moment. You know what you can prioritize and what can wait. And best yet? You're not scheduling every. single. moment. You're literally owning life, from the moment your feet touch that fuzzy bedroom rug in the morning until the time you sleep blissfully at night, knowing it's been a day filled with contentment, memories, and meaningful productivity.
BECOME A PRODUCTIVITY NINJA
Half of success is just showing up. The other half is wanting that change. So, to get the most out of this month:
- Set aside time each day for success. Success is no accident. You have to practice it like you do anything else to hone your skills like a true productivity ninja! It's like getting better at budgeting. Or piano. Or juggling (but not juggling pianos).
- Visualize what success looks like to you. Is it having more time to make memories with your family? Enjoying a new hobby? Making room for work AND to play in your day? You can do it, so dream big!
- Focus on progress over perfection. We're looking for B+ efforts here, people! No one is perfect. Just do your best to be present, and you're going to see results – and the results are SO worth it!
- Commit for just one month. You'll be surprised how much you pick up by doing a little bit every day. It's baby steps, and you've got this!
- Get support. It's amazing how many aha moments you'll experience this month. Share those winning moments, get advice, and follow along on our Facebook page!
