Tools + How I stay productive?

Rating is at least:
Tools that I've used

Tony’s Schedule

Principle: Pomodoro Technique [Monotasking]
Why I like it?
The act of working on one task at a time with a specific amount of time to complete said task plus giving/allowing permission to take scheduled breaks to reduce burn-out throughout the day.
If I can’t finish it within the time break - save it. No need to multitask on the to-do’s of the day, it’ll all be worked on.
Creates time for Deep Work. Monotasking gives you the ability to eliminate distractions by enhancing productivity and cognitive ability to reach achievements you couldn’t reach.
Allows you to build a daily process + find a better ‘time’ for productivity. You build out your top/lowest priorities, allocate time to them, turn-off notifications, work, check-in.
