To-do-list is one of the aspects that can exponentially increase one’s productivity. With a well-planned to-do-list, more tasks are likely to be completed. And with the accomplishment of tasks, some internal satisfaction arises hence a happier life. To help people increase their productivity, Upwork has recently published an article on their website giving tips on how to make an effective to-do-list.

Upwork is a leading global website that gives independent professionals and businesses a platform to interact. These interactions are about companies and business people looking for professional services from their registered freelancers. This mode of conducting business helps in saving time and costs.

First, one should note down all the tasks that he intends to accomplish for a day. By noting down, one will not have to keep remembering the tasks that he plans to complete. The mind will focus on the task at hand. Second, when planning one for a day’s work, one should make a to-do-list the day before. Prior planning will ensure that one utilizes the morning to the maximum by performing tasks which are more demanding rather than planning.

One should note down his to-do-list at one central place. One central source will ensure that no task slips through without being noticed. Also, it will save time as one does not have to go looking at different sources. The article urges readers also to break down their tasks. The breaking down of functions will assist in planning to the minute detail. Planning for the finer details eases work as one is aware of what to do on at least an hourly basis.

Lastly, one should bundle together similar tasks. This batching helps in going through the functions faster. The clubbing process should be accompanied by zooming in and zooming out processes. Zooming out is where you determine significant activities while zooming in is where you define the minor actions that make up the primary activities. Upwork encourages its clients and subscribers to try these tips. These will ensure that their productivity is improved
