“It’s not always that we need to do more but rather that we need to focus on less.” Nathan W. Morris

Productivity is the key to getting more things in a career and life. But in today’s digital distraction environment, it’s really hard to stay focus and productive on your work and study.

Just practicing and adopting these small productive habits into your life will change your results and output for daily small actions. And you will achieve a lot more results with the same efforts and create more opportunities and happiness.
35 Productive Habits;

We all have a big vision, big dreams, and want to achieve all things. Even so, one time we have to focus on things. We can’t achieve all things at once.
We have to focus on one thing at a time, and after getting one thing at a time; we have to shift focus to another.
