Increasing productivity or even being productive takes planning and time. We often want to find an extra hour or two a day to do certain tasks, but if you put into effect systems and get organized in your daily life you can get a lot more done each day. Parents can easily fit in more fun time with their kids when they organize their day and their home and learn to say “no” more often. If you work from the home, you can be more productive by eliminating distractions from family and friends. Employees in an office setting can be more productive by planning out a project and working on it in chunks. These little changes can make a big difference in how productive you become.
