7 Time Saving Hacks To Increase Your Productivity

Sometimes, it seems like there are not enough hours to achieve everything we want to. As entrepreneurs we often feel overwhelmed by tasks and struggle to accomplish in a day. Here are 7 life hacks to help you get the most out of your day - from to-do to done.

1. Schedule your day and prioritize your tasks.

 When you go on your day without itmeizing things to do, at the end of the day, you'll realize that you haven't done anything of value. Always make a list of the things you want to accomplish during the day at the start of your day.

2. Write things down

Our minds tend to wander so, whenever you have an idea you want to pursue, write it down immediately and then return to your current task. This way your mind is not in two places and you can achieve more.

3. Seinfeld’s productivity chain

This method can be used to achieve personal goals, break bad habits or master a new skill. Simply do what it is you need to do every day. No exceptions

4. Reward yourself for completing tasks

You're more likely to work faster and accomplish tasks when you have something to look forward to at the end of it. Always reward yourself for completing tasks. Your treats serve as motivation

5. Do the most unappealing task first

 Examine your to-do list and start with the tasks you know you most likely won't do if you had the chance. This way, you get your difficult task out of the way and you can focus on doing the ones you enjoy

6. Use the two-minute rule

If a task will take you two minutes or less to complete, do it immeadiately and move on. Do not procrastinate

7. Make a "done" list

Make a list of all the things you've accomplished - whether big or small. Seeing your list grow will motivate you to achieve more
