5 Actionable Tips to Stay Productive

2 minutes read

Tip 1: Crush the small tasks

Instead of procrastinating, tackle small tasks right away. Completing them builds momentum and proves to yourself that you're capable of achieving what you set out to do. Make your bed, take out the trash, clean your dishes, or any other small tasks.


Tip 2: Limit your time on social media

I have personally set a time limit on social media apps, blocking them until 5pm each day. This helps me stay focused and prevents me from getting sucked in to social media.


Tip 3: Be intentional in getting into flow state

Flow state is powerful for productivity, and you can be more intentional about getting into it. Take a toilet break, fill up your water, and listen to the same background music before starting challenging and creative work.


Tip 4: Give yourself well-deserved breaks

When you feel unproductive, don't force yourself to be productive again. Instead, give yourself a deserved break and spend the time detached from work.


Tip 5: Capture everything in an inbox

Whether it's a new task or an idea, write it down or put it into a digital inbox like Notion. This prevents you from having open loops in your mind that can clutter your thinking and focus.

I want to share with you a Chrome extension that I recently discovered, which is great for helping me search for key points in a video.

YouTube Summary with ChatGPT & Claude

This extension displays the transcript on the side of the video, allowing you to easily copy and paste it into ChatGPT to find the information you need.

Sometimes, I want to find a specific quote or message that I learned from a video, and in these cases, AI can help me retrieve what I need without having to rewatch the entire video.
