Contrary to popular belief, becoming more productive doesn’t have to mean sacrificing what you love about your life outside of work. With a little effort and know-how, you can make your work hours up to twice as productive, leaving you with a lot more quality time to spend elsewhere.

Simple moves like turning off your phone or locking your door during protected chunks of work time can save you up to two hours a day by making interruptions a thing of the past.
2. Get Organized
