1. Make a clear plan and daily routine

To keep up with everything and not miss the deadlines and not forget any little things, you need to write everything down. Each task for the day must be written clearly and competently. And it's better to do it in the evening. This will increase your efficiency at times.

2. Choose the right time to work

If you don't have a specific schedule on which to work, it's important to listen to yourself. If you are a night owl, plan to deal with work issues in the evening; if you are a morning person - do it in the morning. Plus, of course, you need to understand your profession's specifics because if you work with colleagues or partners, you should be in touch when you need to resolve a particular work issue.

3. Determine the amount of time to work

To understand how to plan work affairs and household tasks, it is important to clearly indicate the amount of time you will spend on work. Don't multitask while you're working; focus solely on the task at hand.  This can be a great distraction and take longer to complete work tasks.

4. Designate a workplace for yourself at home

Not everyone can afford a separate office, but you can find a separate place. This requires a chair, table, and lamp. To make your work more comfortable, you can arrange it as you like. The main thing is that it should be a certain place that would motivate you to work, and not relax and discourage you from working.

If you've set aside five hours for yourself to work, then it's best to devote this time entirely to work tasks, following the plan. Distracted by social networks that constantly tell you something interesting, you can delay work or even screw it up. Therefore, make it a rule to turn off social networks when sitting at your desk.
