Life is fast and you need to catch up if you don’t want to be left behind. Here are some of the best tricks we have to help you be more productive and use your time in the best possible way.
50 Minutes or Less
If you have a ton of work to finish, don’t forget to take breaks at least every 50 minutes. Otherwise, you’ll quickly lose focus and concentration needed to work on the task.
80/20 – Pareto Principle
Depending on the task, sometimes you’ll be able to finish 80% of work in 20% of the time so utilize that whenever you can.
Forget About Multitasking
There’s no way you can focus on two or more things at the same time. Multitasking will only slow you down and increase the chance of mistakes.
Use a Notebook
Using pen and paper to write things down will help you remember them, unlike typing the same info on your laptop.
If you spend a certain amount of time commuting to and from work every day, find interesting and useful podcasts to listen to or just read a book (if you’re not the one driving).
