You can’t just become highly successful through ‘life hacks’ and shortcuts, but there are some habits and tools that are too good not to use. That’s why I’ve assembled a list of the top 16 tools, tactics and routines that I’ve come across from my research. Integrating these won’t necessarily make you highly productive and successful but it will definitely help push you towards the right direction.
To-Do-Lists are everywhere and there is a reason why. They reduce anxiety about the chaos of life, providing a structure that we can follow. Lists break down your goals into manageable tasks and they are proof of what we have achieved that day, week or month. Science also shows that to-do-lists also eliminate the negative cognitive effects of unfinished goals, freeing your mind up to actually focus on the task you need to do now. Barbara Corcoran of Shark Tank fame is one of the biggest proponents of using To-Do-Lists to increase productivity.
