This awesome list of life hacks will teach you how to make your life easier.
1. Use the 2 minute rule
If a task can be done in 2 minutes, do it! Don’t keep it for another time simply because it is an easy task. That is the 2 minute rule. Use it!
2. Always write down 3 of your most important task, the night before!
3. Listen to music while working
4. Set specific times to check your emails
6. Learn the art of saying no without hesitation
7. Batch all similar tasks
8. Start your day tough or start easy
Are you the type that likes to get the most difficult tasks out of the way, get it done and then get to the easier one? On the other hand, if you are the type that likes starting your day easy, start with the easiest of your To Do tasks and then tackle the tough ones. I don’t know about you but I think mixing both easy and difficult tasks together will definitely hamper your productivity. So start easy or start tough to improve productivity. Your choice!
9. Write everything down
I can’t begin to count the number of times I had a great idea and then promptly forgot it hours down the road (LOL) simply because I didn’t have a pen and paper! Written down the Ideas, tasks, and other pertinent things. This will boost your productivity greatly.
10. Carry out a task as soon as it rises
Procrastination is in our blood. More so than others. The result is that we tend to put off things that we could do immediately for later. Then we keep post phoning for another day. On and on, telling ourselves we have all the time in the world. Then the deadline comes and we start running helter-skelter! We become stressed out. When you have a task to do, do it immediately instead of leaving it for later especially if it is something that can be done within a few minutes.
11. Make use of password manager
Some of the websites I used actively, so I have to remember all the passwords! I imagine how it is you too! Having to remember all the passwords to your emails and every work-related website or tool that uses passwords for logins. The time you spend you spend in trying to remember and try different passwords to log in is time wasted and productivity, truncated. That is why using a password manager is one of the smart life hacks for improving productivity.
12. Ever faced walking toward somewhere and seeing another person walking towards you and you need to get past each other and end up doing left to right dance. Just look towards the direction where you are going instead of looking towards the person he/she will automatically move.
13. If you are ordering something online and it doesn’t give you free delivery then just add any random item which amounts you free delivery and place the order. When order is placed just cancel that particular random item and you just saved few bucks. I don’t know whether this works now or not because one time I remember it got failed. But just give a try.
14. Ever want the other person to show interest in you and talk you. Whenever you talk just talking more about what the person likes. He/she will start like talking to you.
15. If you are ever going to face a situation which makes you nervous like speaking somewhere. Before that start chewing gum and you will be little calm down because your brain know body will not eat anything in danger.
16. Don’t want to watch a video on YouTube with ads. Just skip to the end of video and hit replay. Ads won’t show after that.
