Finding the time to get all of your tasks done while also having a personal life can be tricky, but the key isn’t to work longer hours – you’ve got to be more productive in the hours you are working.

To help you get some ideas for ways to be more productive, we put together the infographic below with some tips for improving your time management, finding more energy to be more productive, using your space to increase your productivity, and finding apps to improve and automate your work life.
But remember: Productivity is all about striking a balance. No one method of organization or app is going to be a best fit for everyone. You just need to find the right balance of tricks for you to more easily manage your workload.
So check out the infographic below to uncover these tips, and be one step closer to getting out on time at the end of the week.
