1. Develop a schedule, but maintain some flexibility. Learn to work around the changes that inevitably occur. 
  2. Focus on one thing at a time. Multitasking may seem like a good way to get more done in less time, but it actually slows you down because your attention is divided between two activities. 
  3. Go through your daily ‘to do’ list and group your tasks so that you are not constantly going back and forth from one type of task to another and can knock out an entire category of work in no time.
  4. Know your limits.
  5. Learn to say “no” to things you don’t have to do. 
  6. Limit time spent on social media. Turn off social media notifications.
  7. Make lists. Start your work day by making a ‘to do’ list. Go through your planner and see what you have scheduled for the day. 
  8. Set up routines where you can. Routines enable you to complete certain tasks automatically and helps reduce stress. 
  9. Take real breaks. This may seem counterintuitive, but your brain actually needs a break every so often.
  10. Track your time spent during work hours. This can immensely help you improve your productivity. Track what you’re doing, when, and how long during that time you are working for a week. Then review what you have written. This will help you enable you to evaluate and change your habits, eliminate time waste, and increase your productivity.
  11. Use a planner. A planner can help keep you on track of what needs to be done and when.
