Nowadays, you simply have to be productive. In school, at work, in your personal life. We live in a create-on-demand world so you must have felt the pressure every now and then.
The thing you always have to remember when it comes to being productive, regardless of the context: you got to have a clear mindset. Clarity of thoughts, needs, of the objectives you have to attain. Apparently, wearing the same thing every day could also help, but that’s not on our agenda today.

4. Anchor yourself in the present
Pay attention to the way you connect with people, the way food tastes, how you feel about different matters you come across, and how you are influenced by the outside world. It will uplift your awareness, and you will pay more attention to details. Eventually, details will turn into original ideas. And you need creativity in order to be productive.
