The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you’ll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase.
We’d all like to use our time efficiently — however that translates for us: waste less time refreshing social media we ultimately don’t care about, split screens to compare data without flipping between pages, or getting our 10-year plan into the day-to-day so we can feel more productive instead of just busy.
It’s easy to stretch a task that could be done in 40 minutes into an all-day event, especially with the introduction of the internet, but that’s not a very satisfying way to live. It also doesn’t maximize your talents or ensure that you’ll grow at the kind of rate you might like to see when you’re looking back on what you’ve achieved in life.
Below are nine productivity tools that will help you turn your abstract goals into achievable, actionable items for your day-to-day life, so your good intentions for writing a book by 25 or making partner by 45 don’t just stay intentions.
