The Ultimate Productivity Tip for Logo Designers
Picture this. You sit down in front of your computer in the morning, eager and ready to get some work done. Suddenly, you realise that a couple of hours have passed and you are still on TweetDeck, trawling though Google Reader and checking emails.
You wonder to yourself, what on earth happened to the last 3 hours…
I am sure that the situation above will sound familiar to many of you. It was a regular problem for me, that was until I changed one simple thing.
Use the tip I am about to share with you and it could change your life. I now start the day with a real sense of purpose, and my productivity levels have greatly improved.
While I have directed this post towards logo designers, no matter what your profession happens to be, this can work for you.

Before – The Cluttered Desktop
After – The Minimalist Desktop
What, that’s it?
Yep, that’s it.
Having all your applications on the desktop is convenient, however there is always the temptation to get side-tracked. Additionally, while pretty backgrounds are nice, they can be distracting. This is something I didn’t realise until I removed mine.
Choose a single colour for your background (I prefer black or white), and place your single most important application for getting work done right smack-bang in the middle of your desktop.
Try it now and thank me in the comments later.
