  3. 3. I found the following productivity techniques to be useful for college students like me. • The Eisenhower Box • The 2 minute rule • The Ivy Lee method • Seinfeld Strategy and • The Pomodoro technique https://therealnandu.wordpress.com/
  4. 4. The Eisenhower Box Use the decision matrix and separateyour actions based on fourpossibilities. • Urgent and important (tasks you will do immediately). • Important, but not urgent (tasks you will schedule to do later). • Urgent, but not important (tasks you will delegate to someone else). • Neither urgent nor important (tasks that you will eliminate).

  5. 5. The 2 minute Rule • Part 1: If a task takes less than two minutes to complete, then do it right now. • Part 2: Part 2 — When you start a new habit, it should take less than two minutes to do. • Example: Want to make reading a habit? Just read the first page of a new book (2–Minute Rule), and before you know it, the first three chapters have flown by. The most important part of any new habit is getting started — not just the first time, but each time. Source: James Clear https://therealnandu.wordpress.com/
  6. 6. The Ivy Lee Method 1. At the end of each day, write down the six most important things you need to accomplish tomorrow. Do not write down more than six tasks. 2. Prioritize those six items in order of their true importance. 3. The next day, concentrate only on the first task. Work until the first task is finished before moving on to the second task. 4. Approach the rest of your list in the same fashion. At the end of the day, move any unfinished items to a new list of six tasks for the following day. 5. Repeat this process every day.

  7. 7. The Seinfeld Strategy • Jerry Seinfeld used a unique calendar system to pressurize himself to write better jokes. Here's how it works. • Get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step is to get a big red magic marker. • For each day that you do your task, put a big red X over that day. "After a few days you'll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You'll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain." • "DO NOT BREAK THE CHAIN" Source: Lifehacker https://therealnandu.wordpress.com/
  8. 8. The Pomodoro Technique • Choose a task to be accomplished. • Set the Pomodoro to 25 minutes (the Pomodoro is the timer). • Work on the task until the Pomodoro rings, then put a check on your sheet of paper. • Take a short break (5 minutes is OK). • Every 4 Pomodoros take a longer break (15-30 minutes).
