How can you be productive each day? With the right attitude and the right environment, you’ll find that it’s easier than you think to be productive. Keep these five productivity tips in mind each day, and soon you’ll find yourself being productive more often than not!
Make a list of things you want to accomplish and prioritize them. If there are things you don’t want to do, delete them or move them down on your list until you’re satisfied. This is probably your most important step in being productive.
Focus on one thing at a time. Don’t worry about everything you have to do in your head. Make a checklist and tick off one thing after you finish it. This will help reduce procrastination, which can be really dangerous when you need to finish tasks.
One of our most harmful productivity killers is multitasking. We think we’re saving time by doing multiple things at once, but in reality, we’re distracting ourselves from getting much done at all. If you find yourself struggling to focus on one task or are spending too much time switching back and forth between tasks, try only working on one thing at a time and focus solely on that activity until it’s completed.
Your phone, computer, and TV are distractions. There’s a time and place for each of these devices, but they can take away from real productivity. If you’re working on something big and important, turn them off or at least put them away in another room so you don’t constantly look at them when you want to focus. Make your home or office as distraction-free as possible by throwing out unnecessary clutter.
Every now and then you’re going to need a break. It can be hard to know when to take a break, but after five or six hours of solid work you should probably give yourself a five-minute breather. Take that time away from your desk, walk around and do some stretches, think about something other than work. After that five minutes is up, get back on it!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
