Planning things. At least per week or per day. Doing it in the easiest way possible - todoist, trello, the simpler app is the better. When I started to plan procrastination just disappeared.

@mikhail_ivanenko Thanks for sharing! Planning in advance indeed leads to productivity.
Blocking my internet distractions: Netflix, Instagram, etc. I was always guilty of pulling up a second screen to internet surf.

@allison_mui Focusing on one task at a time is undoubtedly a huge productivity booster. Multi-tasking is a myth.

Time blocking is without a doubt my favorite productivity hack. On Mondays I plan what my priorities will be for each day, and the last thing I do each day is timeblock out the following day so I know how my day is going to go, and there are no surprises.

Well, social media management tools help me tbh! While I have so much on my plate to work on, auto-postings helps a lot.
Pritam Nanda
@tahniat_alam With so many social media platforms to post on, auto-posting definitely takes a lot out of the plate and helps in focusing. Thanks for sharing!

Having enough sleep :D If I'm sleepy or exhausted, I can hardly focus on tasks

@daria_novikova14 Having a good sleep is one of the most under-rated productivity hack. Thanks for bringing this up here.

Having an inbox. Not just for mails, but for everything. Found something interesting on twitter? A movie to watch? A mail to reply? An order to place? Send it to a singular inbox and batch process them, usually on the day/week end. Lets you put away distractions knowing you can come to it later.

Setting a single goal for each day.
Pritam Nanda
@vaibhav_taneja Interesting. But there might be days where you would have multiple goals to achieve. How do you deal with that?
Vaibhav Taneja
@pritam_nanda92 1. I Identify what is most important. 2. Look for Logical Overlaps 3. Manage my time well on each goal.

Plan your day on a paper. Stick on the wall where you face and work.
Pritam Nanda
@satyendra_sahani Yes. Despite all these apps, paper remains the most distraction free productivity tool.
Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. Trying to attack all your tasks at once will leave you feeling stressed out and you'll ultimately be less productive. Set out 5 or so realistic, high-importance tasks to do in a day and leave the the rest for tomorrow - you'll end the day feeling fulfilled and productive :)
