Hi, I’m Dr. Kate Litterer.
I’m an academically trained Productivity Coach and independent scholar and I specialize in action.
My approach to sustainable and well-being-oriented productivity is informed by my research on productivity, time management, habit formation, mindfulness, and intentional living. In other words: Slow Productivity.
As a coach and workshop leader, I work with individuals and organizations to increase client productivity while limiting overwhelm and overwork.
I created and run the popular Intentionally Productive Scholars Program (IPSP), an 8-week virtual program for undergraduate students that teaches sustainable productivity skills through lessons, workbooks, co-working, and group coaching. You can read more about IPSP here.
If you want to boost your personal productivity with intention, check out my free resources, including videos, guidebooks, and worksheets.

In the rest of this post, I’ll walk you through the different parts of my own current version of the daily planning sheet, offer suggestions for how you can create your own, and then I’ll share a free printable sample you can use, too.
I’ve been working on an approach for shifting out of overwhelm, which I’m currently calling Work Backwards from Overwhelm to Insight and Action. The Work Backwards approach is a method I use for shifting my perspective from feeling stuck in overwhelm to identifying a new goal with actionable and achievable to-do tasks. It has four key steps.
