Here are 3 life hacks for becoming more productive.

When you make a clear schedule, then you are clearly setting out everything you plan on doing for the week. That way you know what gets done when and where.

Make a schedule so that you help yourself become more productive and more efficient with your productivity.
#2- Just Do It
THat famous Nike slogan “Just Do It” is a better, and catchy, way to say stop procrastinating the things you have to do and just go out and do them.

That’s why you should not allow yourself time to procrastinate, and instead, instinctively get up and do what you need to do, without hesitation or second thought.
#1- Cut Off All Distractions
