    We have a course dedicated for productivity and time-management for registrants in offsourced.com.

    Here’s some productivity techniques I can share from the course:

    1. Pareto Principle

    • (also known as the 80/20 rule) suggests that 80% of results come from just 20% of your actions.
    • The point of the Pareto principle is to recognize that most things in life are not distributed evenly. Make decisions on allocating time, resources and effort strategically. For example:
      • Instead of spending 1 hour drafting a paper you’re not sure about, spend 10 minutes thinking of ideas. Then spend 50 minutes writing about the best one.
      • Instead of agonizing 3 hours on a single drawing or design, make 6 layouts (30 minutes each) and pick your favorite.

    2. Parkinson Law

    • Parkinson’s Law is usually expressed as “work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.”
    • It is setting reasonable deadlines for your tasks. For example, if it only takes you an hour to write content then time yourself to do it in only just an hour by eliminating distractions and reasonable deadline/period.

      3. Pomodoro Technique

    • It is the process of breaking your work into chunks: 25 minutes of work, followed by a 5 minute break – that’s one pomodoro. Once you complete four pomodoros, take a longer break (20-30 minutes)
