Todau was stressful, I must say. I am exhausted and I definitely deserve a massage at this point lol. I planned to spend the day indoors, read a lot of articles on read.cash and brush up on some work against tomorrow but it didn't work out that way as I had to help my friends out with some things.

I underestimated how exhausted I was until I got home. My body hurts and I know I need to sleep well and rest.

Apart from all that, I had a very productive day as I was able to accomplish the things I set out to do and it inspired me to write about some tips on productivity.

  • Prioritise

To be more productive, it is essential to Prioritise your tasks. A lot of time is usually spent on the unnecessary tasks that either only slows someone down or does not give out a meaningful result. This may include something time-consuming like responding to a bunch of emails rather than doing actual work or trying to get your study area to look nice rather than studying. It is better to do the things that actually yields result so that with each time spent, you're getting a positive outcome and increase your chances of finishing earlier. So, make a list of the tasks you have to do and apply the 80-20 rule where you dedicate 80 percent of your time for the important tasks and then 20 percent for other time consuming, non essential tasks

  • Task System

Creating a system for common tasks can be a game changer. There are tasks one may have to do that may be similar or even repitive. With tasks like that, it is best to group them according to their similarities and do them group by group. That way, your brain processes the tasks and informations better and you can complete one type of work before moving on the next rather than having a back and forth.

  • Do not Multitask

It may seem very tempting to do this as there is the belief that you may be more efficient when you do several things at once but that is not really the case as multi-tasking have been said to actually make one even less efficient. Just as mentioned in the point above, the brain processes similar tasks better and struggles to go back and forth between unrelated tasks. When one is multitasking, they are usually going back and forth between unrelated tasks and are not focused on any, thereby increasing the chances of making mistakes and making one spend even more time in the tasks.

  • Hardest Comes First

Sometimes, we may want to do several small tasks so that it will seem like we have done a lot but we are still not as productive if the bigger tasks are left undone. Also, knowing that you still have a hard task to do will make you feel unmotivated and lose morale. So, it is best to start with the biggest or hardest task and get them out of the way before focusing on the easier things.

  • Take a Break

Don't forget to take short breaks in between. You are only human and not a machine. You need to give yourself a cool down time before you continue.

Thank you so much for reading, I appreciate you!

Even after I have prioritize my tasks, I still end up getting distracted by other things especially if the task I am to do is something that isn't fun for me

Prioritizing is the major, spread the work on a table and pick them according to a good scale...with the hardest and the ones that need urgent attention

"Setting priorities" is soemthing that people do not realize how important it is.. In fact, once they are set, everything follows up quickly and do not even have worry about stuff because we know what to focus on and what not to.. I'm glad you gave that as point number 1
