There are many ways to improve your productivity in your day. From reducing your distractions throughout your day to combining like smaller similar tasks together and taking care of them. Though, the number one way to make your day more productive is to make a list of tasks that need to be done. The tasks do not need to be detailed. They just need to help you remember what needs to be completed. If you like to be more detail in your description of tasks, by all means, write down every step.
Tip: Determine what needs to be done. Write down your list in any order, whatever comes to mind first. Then, on the left side of each task, use number 1 for first priority, number 2 for second priority, etc... Go through your entire list and number each task. By doing this it will break down the task mentally and not seem so overwhelming. Our brains usually do not recall things in order, so this will help you determine the order after you write down the list. Then, begin with number one and move through your list in order from number one till the end of your "to do' list. If you can't finish your list, move the few tasks left to the beginning of the next day.
I hope this helps you have a productive day! Please share if you agree with this statement!
