I’ve read good amount of books/ blogs/ reddit threads on productivity. Mainly, I was inspired to work on improving my productivity after I read the book 4 Hour Work Week.
It has been almost a year now practicing – Improving the Productivity and today, I want to share with you some of the best working ways (or say my experiments) that have helped me dramatically improve my productivity!
Note: I’ll be sharing the tips in parts (i.e. one tip every week).
Reason: So that you can consume all the tips well! These are ACT Exercises and hence won’t be good if I share all at once!
1) Uninstalling the Facebook App and Turning the Whatsapp Notification Completely Off
This may sound nuts, but believe me! I’ve created good amount of my time through this!
I am not asking you to not to use Facebook or Whatsapp. I am asking you to take control of it rather it controlling you.
When you do not have any notifications on your mobile, you are all of a sudden Free!
When You Wake Up in the Morning, you almost have ZERO notification to look at, that’s an amazing time you have created for yourself!
And if you still do not believe me, read the article on Time and learn how notifications are killing your productivity.
Note: I still use Facebook via browser. (I said to uninstall the app, not to delete the account). I also use Whatsapp but my status on Whatsapp communicates people that I am not using it and that they shouldn’t expect an immediate reply from me. <<THIS keeps me Super Free! >>
My Whatsapp Status – Away from Whatsapp! Catch me on Email or SMS
Next week, I will share with you one more productivity tip! It is one of my best recent discoveries! Basically a tool that has helped me maintain a super awesome to do list!
