Productivity is a topic that is always top of mind as we roll into a new year. Especially here at Mydoma, where our main goal is to help designers spend less time managing and more time designing. After all, that's why you got into this business, to create beautiful spaces for your clients. Not to get burnt out managing projects. So, let's explore 7 productivity hacks for interior designers in 2023.

It's a character flaw that us creatives like to....well....create. So, we chase the rush of creating something new only to get frustrated, burnt out and frazzled.
