How I Stay Productive as a Minimalist

2 minutes read

Tip 1: Hide Away Clutter

Hide away clutter where possible, such as on your laptop dock, your browser tabs, or the apps on your phone homescreen.

Every app and website is competing for your attention.

Hiding unnecessary apps and browsers can help you stay undistracted when focusing on your tasks.


Tip 2: Stick to a Few Productivity Apps

It's easy to fall into the trap of constantly searching for new productivity apps.

If you want to see results, it's more powerful to be consistent and effective with your current tools than to chase the latest tool.

According to Tiago Forte, we really only need four productivity apps: a calendar, task manager, notes app, and read-later app.

Tip 3: Limit Your Options

This is something I learned the hard way. I used to waste too much time organizing and planning every detail.

Organization is important, but it's also important to limit your options. For example, if you use a calendar for time blocking, don't create a separate calendar for every area of your life.

I personally stick to using only two calendars, one for work and one for personal.

Keep it simple.


Product of the Week: Pen and Paper

We all have days where our to-do list seems never-ending and our calendar is packed without any breaks.

The reality is that we often lack clarity and prioritization.

By writing down the task you want to work on with pen and paper, you can gain the focus you need to start making progress.

So, what is the one thing you want to accomplish today?

"The purpose of the morning routine is to get you out of survival mode." Benjamin Hardy, PhD

It is normal to break out of your routine once in a while, but it's good to stick to some form of morning routine over the long run.

  • Don't let your emotions run the day.

  • Don't let other people run your day.

  • Don't let social media run your day.

The morning routine is where you can take control and be intentional about how you spend your time and energy.
