Spend 80% of your hours working through those tasks on your to-do list, and 20% of your hours on fun, self-care, exercise, creativity, friends, family, or fill in the blank. ⁠⠀

You owe it to your self- your health and sanity to allow time for activities that will recharge you - every single day. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Want to work smarter? Here are some simple productivity hacks: ⁠⠀ 1. Use "do not disturb" on your phone.⁠⠀ 2. Do important work only. ⁠⠀ 3. Don't multitask. ⁠⠀ 4. Turn off notifications for unimportant apps.⁠⠀ 5. Start putting all of your tasks, calls, and meetings on your google calendar so you don't forget anything. ⁠⠀ 6.
