You’ve spent all day in your office, yet you haven’t gotten any work done.
Your back is sore and your eyes are watering from staring at the computer screen for too long. Your fingers have cramps from typing. Although you’ve been busy all day, you check your progress to find you haven’t gotten as much work done as you had hoped.
Why is that?
Working hard isn’t the same as working intelligently. Productivity has more to do with time management then with sitting at your desk all day.
Productivity apps can help you utilize your time in an efficient way that’ll help you get work done. One of these apps is called “ProductiviT.” This app works great and manages your time so you get the maximum amount of work done.
Here are some reasons why you should use ProductiviT to increase your productivity.
Benefit From Past Research
The creators of ProductiviT designed their app with the knowledge of studies related to productivity. The developers found that you are most productive when you work for twenty-five minutes straight and then take a five-minute “micro break.” This is known as the Pomodoro Technique, and many people have found it to work well.
The app uses this research to recommend how long you should work and how long your break will be. Although you can change the amount of time you spend on either, the default timer is set to the time that studies advocate.
The ProductiviT team has done the research for you to help boost your productivity.
Beat the Turtle
When you start the timer, a turtle on the screen starts swimming. Time is up when the turtle reaches the other side of the screen.
While this might not sound like a big deal, it does help your productivity: Your competitive side kicks in and you desperately want to get your work done before that turtle makes it to the finish line. Beat the turtle to achieve your goal.
Customize Your Schedule
The great thing about this app is that everything is completely customizable. Even though it recommends how long your “work segment” and “micro break” should be, the app can adjust to match what works best for you.
Pay attention to how well you work in a certain amount of time. If you feel like you can work for thirty-five minutes before your productivity dips, then set the timer for thirty-five minutes instead of twenty-five.
The app also lets you choose how many “work segments” you want to accomplish that day, and you can pick from five different alarm sounds. You have the option to send notifications to your phone — even when the app is closed. Many features let you optimize your schedule to ensure the most productive day.
Track Your Progress
One feature, only available to premium members, allows you to track your progress over the course of the day. A calendar feature in the app lets you check off whether or not you completed your daily goal.
Most days are so hectic that we forget to reflect on what we did or did not accomplish. By keeping track of your progress, you can stay motivated and see what you need to work on. The timer feature will help your productivity for that day, and the calendar feature will help you stay productive over a longer course of time.
