5 Productivity Tips This Successful CEO Swears By

Ever noticed that the busiest days at work are the ones where procrastination is most tempting? We still can’t put our finger on why that is, but staying productive and engaged during office hours can feel like a full-time job. That’s why we continue to be inspired by the successful CEOs and entrepreneurs who seemed to have cracked the code to a productive, distraction-free work day.

We know Tina Craig to be one of those leaders. Craig started Bag Snob, an online destination for the bag obsessed, back in 2005, and she’s since built a six-category-strong digital empire, Snob Essentials; designed a vegan-only handbag line for HSN.com; and launched a jewelry capsule collection with a renowned Parisian jeweler. Needless to say, this CEO’s days are only getting busier, but that doesn’t stop her from standing on the front line with her team.

“Every good CEO remembers what it’s like,” Craig tells us. “You shouldn't ask anyone to do something you don’t know how to do yourself. Time management is key. It’s all about taking advantage of the small things that make time work in your favor.” Craig’s 20-plus-year career has taught her volumes about how work performance has more to do with the habits you establish at the onset of your career that can ensure success at every stage.

Here, she shares her tried-and-true productivity tips.
