I’m always looking for time saving tips so I can check off more on my To Do list in less time. One strategy I’m currently trying out is timeboxing. If I give myself an unlimited time to complete a list of tasks, I tend to bounce around several at the same time or knock off the easy ones first. Timeboxing forces me to be realistic with what I need to accomplish and the time I have available on my calendar. While I may not get my task 100% finished in one sitting, I’ve noticed I’m more focused and productive since I’ve started timeboxing.

I’d love to hear other tips that you’ve found useful to boost your productivity or manage your time.
