During the day, all of us want to do a lot. It might be work-related, family-wise, school, or even something related to sports. But, most of us, find the 24h in a day to be not enough to get stuff done.
Gates, Musk, and Bezos have as much time as you, and they're billionaires. Why?
I know you get home after a full day of work and the only thing you want to do is go to bed and relax. But don't! Prepare your next day, schedule that meeting you've been wanting to have for the last 3 months, and schedule your relaxation and eating times. Set your alarm. Whatever! Just plan the day ahead and make sure to stick to your timings.
Some good apps can be Todoist or Calendars.
Start your day by checking what you have planned. What are the chores you have for the day. And, especially, look at the hours assigned to your appointments, and how much time are you giving to something. Does it require that much time? Is it that important? Make sure your tasks and schedules are flexible and make sure you are adjusting accordingly to your priorities.
Keep your priorities in check. Review your own paradigms and if these are the type of things you have been living up to.
It's key to have your priorities updated because you might be allocating time to something not that important and you'll be wasting time.
Get off your phone. Leave it out of reach. You know that is something that is been bothering you, so just let it go!
Does it trouble your studies or your relationships with family and friends? It is an addiction, a drug and you should try and reduce that addiction.
If you have trouble staying focused when on your computer install Extensions that block some websites, that can help.
I have ADHD and I'm medicated, but that is not the solution for most people. There are lots of options out there that you may try, just as the Pomodoro timer or leaving your phone in the other room.
A few years ago I was introduced to sleeping cycles, something that has helped me a lot in my day-to-day. Did you know that 7 in 15 deaths, in the US, is related to sleep deprivation? So what are these sleeping cycles?
The sleeping cycles method is a way to wake up and not feel tired or like you would sleep for another 10 hours. They work in 90-minute blocks. This is, you should sleep in 90-minute blocks repeatedly. For example, if you go to bed at midnight you should wake up at 7:30 am. The recommended time you should sleep is 7:30h.
SLEEPING IS KEY
I am a college student right now and something that has worked out for me in the 6 months has been the introduction of vitamins into my life. They help me focus, memory, and overall physique.
I just take a small 5ml package every morning and it has been a huge help, especially during exam season.
It is just you could give some thought about. Though it is not something that is cheap if you can try it.
Find some time during your day when you can just sit and relax. Read a book, close your eyes, go for a walk or just sit in front of the TV eating some cookies and not doing anything. Don't feel guilty about doing it, just make sure to fit it right during the day and to make the most out of every other hour you have to work.

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.
