1. STOP STRESSING ON THE TERM "TIME MANAGEMENT"

Stop looking at the clock repeatedly, it's probably an unnecessary distraction and you'll end up wasting more time than you save. Just schedule your time off your to-do list and stick to that plan.

2. GIVE YOUR DAY A POSITIVE START

Believe it or not, the power of your mind can help you start your day right.

So treat yourself to a positive start to the day without news, phones and emails. Allow yourself 15 minutes of "self-time" instead of the usual panic.

Finish your day with the "Ivy-lee" technique, which helps you finish the day and start the day productive.

Read on to learn more about the Ivy Lee Method.

3. USE THE IVY LEE METHOD

The Ivy Lee Method is a 101-year-old productivity hack that I highly recommend! At the end of the day, make a list of 6 tasks that you need to complete the next day. Start your work day the next morning with the first task and finish it before moving on to the second, etc. If you repeat this every day, you will achieve higher productivity in your career.

4. RUN A MEETING THAT MATTERS

Meetings are important in the world of remote-working, but they can also be a waste of time. Take advantage of the digital tools that emerged from the pandemic to speed up communication. Tools like Loom - a video recording tool that lets you share your screen, record yourself, or combine both. It's a convenient way to communicate more effectively with the people you work with or for whom you work, so you don't waste time sending back and forth emails or video calls.

5. MASTER THE ART OF DELEGATION

If you are an entrepreneur or manager, your role is not to master everything, but the art of delegating. Even if you have ui/ux skills, excellent product/project management skills combined with the ability to code, you need to master the art of delegating in order to continue to grow, scale and move forward. Outsource what you can. Once you master the art of delegating, you will achieve peak productivity.

6. TAKE TIME TO INVEST IN PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS

Take the time to invest in productivity tools, no matter what role you're in. Take tools like Asana for project management, Loom for video communication, Slack for messaging, and so on. These tools have features that help teams save time and be more productive with their day.

7. IMPROVE YOUR REST CYCLE

This works for some and not for others. Instead of working 3 hours at a time, it is helpful to take breaks of 10-15 minutes between tasks. Studies show that this can increase your daily productivity. Most likely, you work remotely, so we recommend doing 10-15 minutes of exercise, even if that means squatting on your work chair or taking a short walk to get some fresh air. If you have a good routine in combination with a rest cycle, your productivity will improve.

8. AVOID MULTI-TASKING

Multitasking can be counterintuitive.

Juggling a list of endless tasks can be a factor in wasted time.

Which is why we've previously recommended using the "Ivy-lee" method and listing the 6 top tasks the night before, and starting work on the first task in the morning and finishing it before moving on to the next.

Remember that you need to focus on one thing at a time. When you do, you'll see how your productivity improves.
