It allows you to achieve more and better results in less time and with less effort.
Often we lack tools to increase personal productivity, stop wasting time and simply focus on our tasks efficiently, effectively and effectively.
Well, it is not a secret that most of us tend to demotivate ourselves soon and therefore to procrastinate, however today I would like to mention a lot of tips that always allow me to increase productivity when I feel I need it.
This has a lot to do with the type of Heuristic solution to the problem. Usually the most complex problems whose direct solution is not very clear, are solved by Heuristics.
Usually, finding a good and optimal solution will depend on how much we know the problem.
Therefore, as more knowledge about the problem is acquired, adjustments can be made to the solution along the way, and thus improve effectiveness.
Here are 25 tips based heuristics to increase personal productivity to the maximum.
1. Eliminate the unnecessary:
Many times we have activities or chores simply unnecessary. It is good to take them into account to eliminate them and prevent us from wasting time.
If you do not need to do something, delete it from your list.
2. Set Daily Goals:
If you set daily goals and plan to reach certain achievements at the end of the day, it will be much easier to stay focused. Now, this will require your Willpower to initially raise those daily goals.
3. The Worst First:
To overcome procrastination, learn to deal with less pleasant tasks early in the morning, instead of leaving them at the end of the day.
This simple approach will allow you to have a great productive day, and finally you will not feel bad when the night comes, for having stopped doing what is necessary.
4. Identify Your Peak Hours:
At what time of day do you feel more motivated? Identify those moments and schedule the most important tasks for those hours. In my case, my productive moments before biphasic sleep were after 12:00 am Now, with so much time in the morning and having to look for something to do to avoid sleeping, this productivity soared in the morning hours.
This can change for anyone at any time, but initially identifying your peak hours, will allow you to score another pair of points to your productivity score.
5. Pack Your Time:
Set strict and concrete time lapses for each task you are going to complete, no matter how long. The important thing is that you do not spend much more time than the established, nor much less.

6. Early Rise:
Madrugar gives you lots of advantages, including the fact that you have the whole morning from 5:00 am (or the time you decide) to work, and when everyone gets up you will have had at least 3 or 4 hours of advantage to Advance your tasks and activities.
7. Eliminate Distractions:
If your work is on the computer, disconnect the chat programs and social networks and even the Internet.
Go to a quiet and quiet place, like a cafe, a bookstore or a park, and focus on finishing what you have pending. If the music suits you, you can use headphones, but make sure it’s music that helps you focus.
8. Increase Your Frequency:
During your time packets, write faster, read faster, and even speak faster. Try to think faster and carry out tasks more efficiently.
With this I simply mean that by increasing your work frequency a little, you will be able to save a good amount of time at the end of the day or the time package.
9. Carries an Agenda:
It may sound obvious, but keeping an agenda can increase productivity incredibly. I personally do not trust my memory, so I prefer that my digital agenda does the work of remembering for me.
And speaking of this, it does not have to be a paper agenda, you can use a cell phone as advanced as a Blackberry for this purpose, and even one with the basic reminder command. Sometimes even simple alarms at specific times could serve. If you prefer it on paper, make it on paper.
10. Prepare, Fire,!Aim!:
Eliminate procrastination by taking action immediately after setting a task, then start making the necessary adjustments. In other words, Prepare, Shoot and then aim and continue firing.
No matter that the action is not very well planned, you will see the level of productivity that you can achieve when you use this approach. And in any case, you can always improve along the way.
11. Use The 60 Second Rule:
The 60 second rule says that when you have gathered enough information to make a decision, you start a timer and make that decision in less than 60 seconds.
12. Define Deadlines:
Set specific deadlines for your tasks and stick to them. Use them as focal points to stay on the right track and be on time to the destinations indicated.
13. Tell Others:
When you tell others about your outstanding tasks and activities, you are actually taking a moral commitment unconsciously.
You will bear the burden of having to answer for this commitment and that will (unconsciously) force you to do whatever is necessary. (Beware of the information you reveal and to whom you reveal it).
14. Be Punctual:
No matter what the occasion, always, ALWAYS be punctual. Arrive on time for meetings, whether familiar. If you say you will call at 4:00 pm, other than 4:01 pm
For this, I have sometimes been able to advance all my watches 10 minutes or more.
15. Fill Time Spaces With Reading:
Always carry a book, a cell phone or a computer where you can read, for those times when you have to wait. For example at the airport, or in the waiting room of an office. Even in the row of a bank (in this case it would have to be a paper book).
The important thing is that reading is something that you like and that serves you.
16. Applies Resonance:
The usual, visualize as if you had already completed your activities, imagine how you would feel and what you would think. Put yourself in a state of having arrived there beforehand.
Make it real in your mind, and soon it will be real in your life.
17. Reward yourself:
No matter what the rewards are (it should not be overstated), it is good to be rewarded for having completed a stage in your activities or for simply having done everything you had planned for the day.
18. Differently The Urgent Of The Important:
Sometimes we spend our lives attending urgent things, and the important thing never gets to be attended to. It truly analyzes what activities are important to your life and future, and which of them simply need to be addressed right now, but that in the future will simply not matter.
19. Get Ready:
Establish a continuous cycle to increase productivity, preparing you at night for the next day.
List the material and whatever it takes to start your homework as early as possible the morning of the other day.
20. Divide and Conquer:
Break your big projects into small parts and work on each of them separately, this way you will not feel the pressure of a big project, but on the other hand, you will have tasks achievable all the time.
21. A Task at a Time:
Once you start a task, try as much as possible to complete it … from not stopping until finished, and not mixing this activity with others. Do not go halfway and change to others or rest, define your time packages and focus entirely on one thing. Does it sound familiar to you?
22. Creates New Habits:
It is said that the human being is a being of habits. And if so … What better than to create new habits consciously ?, I am obviously referring to good habits of life.
With this, you can set the 30 Day Challenge to make it much easier for you.
Whenever you can convince another to do it for you. Remember that work is delegated, not responsibility.
Identify the processes that suit you best and that generate results and write them down, identify what it is that you do more productively and do more of the same.
Also, keep in mind what does not serve you and get rid of it. After noting what it does, look at how it can improve and look for possible improvements to bottlenecks or breakpoints. Sometimes we do not see clearly the things before our eyes, until we use a microscope.
25. Continued Focus on Productivity:
With this, you have, however, an excellent starting point.
