                                                                                                                                                                                                          No one is born to be very good at time management, so that’s okay if you think you’re bad in it. But everyone can learn to boost their productivity and achieve more!

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Here are 50 ways to increase productivity and add hours to your day.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          1. Set a Timer

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Estimate the time you need to tackle different tasks and set a timer for each of your tasks. How you go about this is up to you as there are many different ways. There is the Pomodoro technique where you focus on a task for 25 minutes followed by a five minute break afterwards.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          In the event that you have a task that will take much longer than that, you can consider one of the many timer-based apps. One that comes to mind is Clockify. It’s used for freelancers and entrepreneurs alike, however it’s a good way to be setting yourself a timer. It provides reports and you can serve as a project manager of sorts too. Best of all, it’s free.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          2. Eliminate All Distractions

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Of course, it doesn’t need to be heavy rock music, but a bit of Beethoven may do you some good.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          By listing your tasks in order of importance, you can make sure that you finish all of your most important tasks during the day.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Learn a unique technique to Prioritize Right in 10 Minutes and Work 10X Faster.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          6. Batch Similar Tasks into a Single Batch.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Tasks like blog writing, phone calls, email and errands can be grouped into a single batch. You will save time by completing similar tasks in one session. One way to help you with organizing all of those things is through the app Todoist. It’s an easy and simple way for you to plan out your day, set reminders, and group all of your most important tasks in a convenient spot.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          7. Complete Your Most Dreaded Tasks First Thing in the Morning.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Whichever activity you are dreading the most is probably the one you need to complete first thing in the morning.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Many people tend to check emails in the morning because after checking a list of emails, they feel fulfilled. But that’s just an illusion of having achieved more.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Doing simple tasks like checking emails first in the morning is bad for you. Instead, do the difficult tasks because you have more energy in the morning to tackle them!

                                                                                                                                                                                                          8. Reward Yourself for Finishing a Big Task

                                                                                                                                                                                                          To stay motivated for whatever you do, reward yourself every now and then.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Keep track of your small wins and milestones and celebrate them. So whenever you struggle about your progress, you see how far you’ve come!

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Find out more about this 2-Step Approach to Self-Motivation: Track Small Wins and Reward Yourself.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Research has shown that multitasking is not productive. If you think you can multitask, think again.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                          For optimum productivity, focus on one thing at a time.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          10. Step Away from the Computer

                                                                                                                                                                                                          The Internet has become one of the number one distraction. To increase your productivity, try to do as much of your work offline as possible.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          I do this a lot when I try to brainstom new ideas and have found it to be very beneficial to simply unplug.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          11. Use Focus Tools

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Make good use of apps and technology to help you remove distractions.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Here’re 18 Best Time Management Apps and Tools to help you stay focused.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          12. Just Start

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Often times, starting is the hardest part. People tend to wait for the perfect time with perfect condition to start. But there’s no perfect condition.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Once you get going, you will quickly get into a rhythm that could last for hours.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          13. Find out Your Productive Hours

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Everyone has a certain time of the day in which they are more productive than others. For me, it’s the morning.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Find out when your prime time is for productivity and optimize your work schedule accordingly.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          14. Keep a Notebook and Pen on Hand at All Times

                                                                                                                                                                                                          This way, you can write down your thoughts, to-dos and ideas at any time. The key is to get everything out of your head and onto paper. Your subconscious mind won’t be reminding you about it every other second. Another consideration is getting the app Evernote. Not only does this save you on ink and paper, Evernote is a convenient place for you to jot down notes and thoughts and then share them with the team. In certain circumstances, this can prove useful if you’re the type of person that has a lot of ideas that you want to share.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          15. Write a Blog to Chronicle Your Own Personal Development and Achievements

But you have to read with a purpose.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Learn how to make it work here: How to Read 10X Faster and Retain More

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Pareto’s law (also known as the 80 20 rule) states that 80% of the outputs result from 20% of the inputs. This means that 20% of our actions result in 80% of the results.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          We must find the 20% that is creating the 80% of our desired outcomes and focus solely on those activities.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                                                          You can’t always be working at optimum productivity. Instead, you should shoot for working in short bursts at your most productive times.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          31. Start a Polyphasic Sleep Schedule

                                                                                                                                                                                                          What is polyphasic sleep?

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Polyphasic sleep is a sleep pattern specification intended to compress sleep time to 2-5 hours daily.[1] This is achieved by spreading out sleep into short (around 20-45 minute) naps throughout the day. This allows for more waking hours with relatively high alertness.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          While you can learn more about it here, you’re recommended to take some naps during the day to recharge your energy too.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Stop reading three different newspapers a day and checking your RSS feeds multiple times a day. Otherwise, you’ll never get anything done.
