Results Matter The Most

Practically, that means this: You might work for 50 hours a week, but if you don’t experience any growth personally, emotionally, or financially, you’re not effective.

To Stop Wasting Time, Know Thy Time

If you don’t measure your time, it’s tough to stop procrastination or improve your productivity. Because if you want to manage your time better, you have to know where it goes first.

The specific method you use for your activity log doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that you want to keep a record for at least two weeks. Preferably, you want a whole month of recorded activities.

Identify The Non-Productive Work

Identify The Non-Productive Work

Go through all the recurring activities in your log one by one. What would happen if you would stop doing them?

  • If the answer is: “All hell breaks loose.” Don’t change anything.
  • But if your answer is: “Nothing would happen.” You’ve hit gold.

We all do activities that have ZERO returns. There are the time-wasters.

How You Stop Wasting Time: Eliminate The Time-Wasters

That’s how you stop wasting time. Know where your time goes. Identify the critical tasks from the trivial tasks in your life. And cut the trivial, time-wasting, tasks.

Often, we start time-wasting activities, and they become habits. And if you don’t become aware of the pointless behavior, it’s difficult to break those bad habits.

A good night sleep and a helathy morning routine is what I work on constantly.

A productive life equals happy life. But we insist on wasting time, which makes it hard to live a productive life.

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!

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Laetitia Berton

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!

Ghazala Begum
