Plan the Night Before

Plan the Night Before

If you have one important task you need to do the next day, try planning an outline for it. Think of all its separate components and take 10-15 minutes to get a well-planned outline. 

This reduces the time you spend the next day thinking about how to approach it.

Productivity is getting important things done consistently. And no matter what you are working on, there are only a few things that are truly important.

Being productive is about maintaining a steady, average speed on a few things, not maximum speed on everything.
