You have a constant feeling of urgency and always have your day on "catch up" mode. Its a good thing that you found this article. You can take a deep breath now, its okay. Here are some Productivity Hacks for Busy People.
Tame the Beast.
In the world of business, you are a warrior and email is the beast. You can't slay it, so you need to tame it to your will. Have it be an ally to you instead of an enemy. If your like most people, emails come flooding in at a frequency that you can barely fathom.
Lets assume you spend at least 1 hour a day, 5 days a week on emails. If you were to cut your time spent on emails in half, that is 30 minutes a day that you have freed up to focus on the more important tasks. Thats 2 & 1/2 hours a week to get that big project done. Thats 1 ten hour day every month that you didn't have before! Thats 12 days a year you can get back right now!
Edit your filters to get rid of more of the junk mail. They already have reset settings, but you can narrow it down even more to ditch the emails from that restaurant you went to while on vacation in another country.
One of the biggest parts of being successful is coming up with new ideas.
This doesn't just apply to entrepreneurs, although it is vital for them, it applies to all aspects of life. Thinking of date ideas, coming up with ways to be more productive at work, or brainstorming how to take your start-up to the next phase, idea-making is an essential aspect of life.
In this article, I will be going over some of the best tips and tricks to come up with new ideas.
I have come up with some of my best ideas this way. This can be done in a variety of ways. Some of my personal favorites are committing myself to writing in my journal every evening, spending 20 minutes in the morning praying and meditating, or going for a walk without headphones in.
The reason this is so effective is because we live in a society where there is constant action. Constant noise. Constant distractions. No wonder silence seems foreign to us! You would be surprised how many great people attribute their success to this one trick. As Tim Ferriss says, "99% of the successful people I know habitually spend at least 20 minutes a day to some form of quite time or meditation."
If you find it hard to carve out a specific time each day, use a figurative time instead of a "clock" time. Although "7PM Meditation" is the better approach, "After Dinner Meditation" works too. Don't skip this step if you have issues with time commitments. Find a way!
