New Year, Fresh Start? Our Top 5 Productivity Tips to Kick Off the New Year…

We are deep into the spin of the new year, and while everyone is making their resolutions, we thought we’d team up with our friends at Easy Duplicate Finder to put together a little list to help you get into the groove of the new year, and make sure that 2020 is your most productive year yet!

Ready to start fresh?

1. Update Your Contact Lists!

We all want to be better friends and colleagues in the year ahead, and that’s nearly impossible if we aren’t getting in contact with anyone. It might be that you are relying on old emails to remain in touch with people, but those are getting bounced right back to you on first send because their contact information is outdated. Make sure to get accurate, updated contacts, and then get rid of old or duplicate emails, phone numbers, and contact details that you have been using, and get ready to finally get in touch.

2. Set Your ‘Get Pumped’ Playlists…

Nothing gets you more motivated and productive than having some great tunes playing while you work, or workout! Slim down your music files, then add the latest tunes for getting your head back in the game, and your body in top form. Need some suggestions? We’ve got you covered

3. Put A Fresh Face Forward…

You didn’t hear it from us, but… social media matters. Whether you are hoping to put up the best, most stylish shots for your personal brand, or just want to project yourself at your most professional (drinks down, please…), the new year is a fantastic time to update your social media profiles to reflect your biggest goals in the year ahead. Make sure your duplicate photos are not bloating your computer, and who knows, maybe amongst all of the multiple shots you’ve collected over the years, you’ll stumble upon a hidden gem.

4. Build in Some Time for Self-Care

It’s great being active and productive, but there are times when you really need to slow down and relax. Our tip? Fix some delicious healthy food (or order in), and curl up with a playlist of your favorite movies. There’s really nothing like a great movie to keep you comforted on days when you need it most. Just don’t kill the vibe by having a slow-running computer that’s weighed down by multiple copies of the same movie. Quality “Me Time” means high-quality copies of all your favorites. Let the self-care begin!

5. Get Ready, Get Set, Get Organized!

Set aside some time, create a system (we like alphabetical), and get your Google Drive or Dropbox files organized, so that everything you need is easy to find and use. The biggest obstacle for most people  is usually combing through all of the files they never even realized were duplicates. With even a little bit of time and the right tools, you can set yourself up for success in basically no time. You’ll be glad you did (you don’t have to thank us!).

Setting goals and getting into the groove of a new year doesn’t have to be overwhelming. The biggest obstacle for many of us is not knowing where to begin. But take it from us, getting clear and uncluttered is the first step into moving forward with your plan of attack, no matter what your goals are. 

With Easy Duplicate Finder, you’ve got all of your resources in one place to get your duplicate files cleared, your devices working smoothly, and giving you the opportunity to streamline your life, to make sure that the next year is your best year yet.
