Set timing to read your emails
Setting the specific time for reading your emails saves much of your valuable time, you can set half an hour in the morning and evening to check your inbox, if you are using Gmail, then simply turn off “Desktop Notification” which is enough to distract your attention.
Don’t be over social on your social network sites
Never keep your social network sites always opened in browser, instead fix some time to be on social network sites as of checking emails, be to the point while commenting other post. Strictly close the social networking sites once your estimated time gets over. Avoid using social clients such as TweetDeck or facebook chat so that you can fully involve in your work.
Disable instant messenger clients
Instant messenger clients usually start with the PC and show you as available for chatting in your friend’s chatting list. They also inform you whenever a new email arrives whether it is important or not therefore it is avid to keep your instant messenger client disabled. To do so, just remove the installed IM client from startup list from windows or don’t go for “Automatic sign in” option in IM client.
Create a to-do list
Create a to-do list and set deadlines for each and every task, you can go for doomi or todoist to-do apps. Personally I use todoist as it supports the range of platforms including Windows, Mac, iPhone, Android, Chrome, Firefox and Outlook with synchronize among each devices and platforms. Todoist sends your productivity report of last 8 days via email that let you analyze your tasks completion ratio.
Set goal to get your favorite stuff
Setting the goal cheers you up to complete your task within the deadline. If you set a goal to buy your favorite gadget by the end of the month with the money you are going to earn, then you will surely work hard whole month to complete your tasks.
