Do you ever feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done that you need to do? It’s an extremely common feeling, but most people don’t know how to solve the problem.
You can’t stop time to get more done, but there are small changes you can make each day to be more productive. Learn how to maximize your hours in the day and increase your productivity immediately with these suggestions:
1. Create daily to do lists.
To do lists are critical for keeping you organized and boosting productivity. Create a prioritized list with the most important things at the top of the list, and cross out each item as you complete it. Splitting the list into sections for critical tasks and non-critical tasks can help keep your list is do-able and not overwhelming.

3. Plan and take notes in a specific notebook.
Don’t fall into the trap of jotting notes on any piece of paper that’s handy. This lack of organization will inevitably make you waste time later when you’re trying to find that piece of paper where you wrote that important note. Instead, keep a notebook handy where you can write all your scheduling and notes in one place. If you can’t have a notebook or planner on you, use your phone to jot notes.
4. Know when you need to take a break.
Have you been staring at your computer screen for an hour but gotten very little work done? It’s time to take a break. Sometimes taking a few minutes away from a project enables you to come back with a fresh mind.
5. Limit the time you spend on the internet or watching television.
How much time do you spend surfing the web and watching television each week? Do you waste time on social media instead of doing what you need to do? Commit to reducing the amount of time you spend watching TV and on the Internet and you will find you have more time in the day to accomplish more.
