21 Friends Share their Productivity Tips/Tools

 “We don’t manage time, we manage activities within time” @bernardkelvin


A lot can be achieved in one day

Within a 24 hour time frame, I got in touch with some friends of mine to discuss the subject of productivity. Each of them is actively involved in either a project, cause or organization, that is making a difference and helping create a better world. They willingly volunteered to share with me some of the best productivity tips they’ve learnt and apply in everyday life. I asked them to spare two minutes to answer these two questions:

  1. What is your best productivity tip/phrase/advice?
    2. What has been your best tool or app to work productively in your job?


This is a FREE material; freely share this with your friends, we made it for you!

  • What is your best productivity tip/phrase/advice?The best productivity tip I could ever give someone is always have a positive attitude to everything. No matter which situation you find yourself, always have a positive attitude. If you are working for someone, think of it as you own that company and act the way you would as if it was yours, by doing so, you put all your energy into what you do. This does not only help build the company, but also enhances your skills and prepares you for your own ventures in life. I have always treated every job i had had as my own and I always try as much as I can to be happy. Listen with an antelope ears, and be slow in speaking. Think of 5x faster before you say anything and also be true to yourself.


  • What has been your best tool or app to work productively in your job?It’s funny, though I am a Tech junkie, I don’t actually have any special tool, but if I do, its feedly, Gmail for Android to check my emails, Twitter to check what’s trending in my area of interest, LinkedIn to check my connection and make new connections, Instagram to ease of the stress, Evernote to take notes, XE currency converter to keep track of the cedi and the dollar, WhatsApp to share important links and news among my peers.
    But most of all, the best productivity tip I can give you is a peace state of mind. I mostly feel productive when I visit a particular coffee shop around OSU. The place is peaceful for my mind which makes me productive. Find a peaceful state of mind and you will be productive. Try changing where you work, move to a different desk or work from a remote location if your work permits you.

  • My best productivity tip is to do one thing at a time. Contrary to popular notion, I don’t believe in multi-tasking. It gets you to start too many things, but may not complete them. Thus, do one thing at a time to completion, before jumping on to the next.
  • My best productivity app is WhatsApp. While it may not be a “productivity” app in the real sense of the word, it has helped me to check up on my team members who are scattered all around the country. It helps me know what’s going on with them, etc. We have a page there where we have our meetings and all that.
