One of the best ways to improve your productivity is to recognize and change personal time management mistakes. When you overcome these mistakes, you are happier because you are more productive, and experience less stress.

Do you take active measures to increase your productivity? Or do you find yourself feeling overloaded or stressed out by deadlines?

If you want to improve your productivity, and personal satisfaction, you can eliminate common time management mistakes by implementing strategies into your daily routine:

Forget about multi-tasking and focus on one thing at a time
Make “to –do” lists that are prioritized, and specific
Minimize distractions
Create breaks or “healing intervals” between tasks
Slow down
Say “no” to taking on too much
Set clearly defined goals
