WAYS TO BE MORE PRODUCTIVE

  1. Useful procrastination
    When I really am putting off something I find the best thing to do is replace it with another productive activity. Can't bring yourself to write? Time for the gym! Then calling your family! Then cleaning! I do most of my productive things while avoiding another thing: it combines the joy of accomplishment with the sweet, sweet relief of ignoring something. A win win that breaks even in the long run.
  2. Reorganize your closet

  4. Drink those mostly-empty bottles of wine that are about to go bad and are just sitting on the counter taking up space....

  5. Go for a walk
    Sometimes I just can't be productive at what I'm doing. A quick breather and a little exercise is perfect to boost productivity. At work but can't focus? Take a walk around the building or the parking lot. It builds energy. It gets me away from what I'm working on for a second. It helps me think. A good walk is the best way for me to get back on task.

  6. Say "no" more often. (I suck at this, by the way.)

  7. Make a list
    List all the small things you need to do, so as you cross stuff off, you feel like a champ.

  8. Read a chapter of a book
    This is what I do when I need a screen break.

  10. Start with the hardest part of the task, so you can tackle it with all your energy. Then when you're tired you can do the easier, funner stuff and it's chill
