If you don’t check everything off your to-do list each day, you aren't alone.
According to a recent survey, only 11 percent of professionals said they were able to complete all the items on their to-do list in an average workday.
Here’s a rundown of some important things productive people do to get it all done each day:
- Write It Down – Believe it or not, you have a better chance of getting everything done if you write it down on paper, instead of entering it into your smartphone.
- Add Structure – Flying by the seat of your pants might be fun, but structuring your day and blocking time off for single activities puts you on a fast track to success.
- Prioritize Emergencies – Days are filled with distractions. There’s no getting away from it. To still get stuff done while being interrupted, it’s important to know that you don’t have to jump every time someone brings you a problem. (HuffingtonPost.com)
