It's highly difficult to get everything done each day. Studies by Time  show that only 3 hours of the day ever have any work produced.

However, there are simple ways to make sure that you get the most out of your day.

1. Start the day when you're calm

Starting your day calmly allows you to get things done right but with focus.

This allows you be proactive about any incoming communications or responsibilities.

2. Don't check your email in the morning

This will take you away from the driver's seat of your day and force you to spend the rest of it reacting.

3. Prioritize

Minimize the amount of tasks that need to be done by weeding out what is unnecessary. Only deal with things that are important.

4. Eliminate distractions

Get rid of anything that affects your ability to concentrate. Ensure that you can focus without having anything that is noisy, flashy or loud to distract you. Block all social media from your schedule and stay away from workmates who have a constant need to chat.

5. Have a routine

Designing your own system allows you to keep track of what is going on. It enables you to do things automatically.

6. Write your to-do list the night before.

You should wake up knowing what your day expects of you. This will also help reduce any anxiety and helps you enjoy your evening.
