Tips to Become More Productive & Useful Productivity Apps


Share on

Becoming more productive is something many people want, but few people have the time to research, and even fewer people can follow up and put the things they have learned into practice.

This article will hopefully help you to become more productive. Here are some tips that you can use to be more productive. These tips are based on my personal experience, so it’s not something that will suit all.

1. Take Regular Breaks

If you want to be productive, you need to take regular breaks. What I mean by regular breaks is that you should take a 15-minute break in the morning and afternoon. You should also take a break after every 4 hours of work.

In short, you should do something that requires little concentration. For example, you can read a small paragraph of anything. This will reduce the frustration and you will be more productive.

2. Avoid Distractions

Distractions are like enemies that hamper productivity. Here are some ways to avoid distractions:

  • Close the applications that are not related to the task.
  • Remove the notifications.
  • Close the instant messages.
  • Turn off the phone.

3. Avoid Multitasking

You should be able to concentrate on one thing at a time. Multitasking decreases productivity. It also increases the chances of making mistakes. If you want to become more productive, you should focus on one thing

This is very important especially if you want to be productive. Here are some ways to avoid multitasking:

  • You should avoid interruptions. For example, you should not let anyone disturb you while you are working.
  • You should also avoid distractions while working. For example, you should not go to another website to read something while you are working.

4. Do Something Else

If you find it difficult to concentrate on the work, you can do something else. You can read a book or you can play a game. This is useful if you feel that you are not getting the work done.

5. Be Consistent

If you want to be productive, you should be consistent. What I mean by this is that you should be very regular with the work. For example, if you work from 9 to 5, you should stick to it.

Final Word

I'm a big believer in 'you get out what you put in'. As the saying goes, you reap what you sow. So, what does this have to do with productivity? Well, productivity is about getting things done. It's about getting the most out of your day, week, month, year, etc.

If you're not satisfied with the results that you're getting from the years that you're given, then you can re-evaluate how you're spending your time.
