  • 3. Set aside a specific time to check your e-mails- Schedule a time-window to check your e-mails and stick to it, so that you don't waste more time than necessary organizing and replying to your e-mails at work-time.

  • 5. Batch similar tasks- Always batch similar tasks together when planning your day, it’ll definitely make your work process flow more smoothly.
  • 6. Use the urgent/ important task matrix- You can separate all tasks into four categories like important and urgent, important, but not urgent, not important and urgent and not important, nor urgent to boost productivity
  • 7. Use the one and done rule- As soon as a new task arises, schedule a time to handle it, don't wait till later to deal with it.
  • 8. Learn to say 'No'- You can do anything, but you can't do everything. Hence, it is vital that you learn to say no, if you wish to increase your productivity, instead of saying yes to everything, and doing nothing well.
