I was wondering how do you folks stay productive and efficient during the day?
I have a routine that begins when I first wake up in the morning through the first hour - it's gratitude awareness, coffee, read something inspiring (I am reading Social Animal by David Brooks right now) then yoga (15mins) meditate (10 mins) morning pages (10 mins). I do this everyday without thinking or compromise - this primes me for the rest of my day. I don't even have to think about it. I do it especially when I don't feel like it. This is the way I start off my day by stepping right into my power.
I also use Asana (online project management website) to organize my tasks for the day and prioritize so I start with the hardest thing first and the brain challenging stuff before noon. That's my best time.
Answering email, errands, other work that is more routine - I schedule for the afternoon.
Evening is for my family unless on a deadline.
Totally I'm agree with you!
Great topic you have asked. Everyone has different perceptions regarding being productive. I would like to tell you about mine. I use productivity apps such as Any.Do, EverNote, CloudApp, DropBox, Calender. Moreover, health apps for instance, Samsung Health and Galaxy Wear.
Also, I read some motivational content on internet to stay positive and relaxed.
It depends on what you're working. For example, if you receive many emails you should use https://dwebox.com to manage your emails.
In the morning read the most important emails first (e.g your executives or your most important customers) so that you use the good energy when it matters. It just makes life thousands time better
In general, if you want to be productive I'd say just remove any distraction and focus on your goals 🙂
It's a great topic! Personally for me, strong time managment is the best tool to stay productive during the work day. I usually have many plans for the next days, so I list and follow them.
