How to do 8 hours of work in 4?

We all have read about productivity, some tips and tricks that will help us do an 8h work in 4h. I wanted to write this article for a long time, but first I wanted to try these habits by myself and see are they true. So, I try out a lot of things, some worked, others not. Here are the keys that worked for me. First one is…


For me the most important tip is concentration. You should be focused in what you are doing, if you wanted to complete it in less time with same or better quality. You should find a way to get into the zone and try to stay there as much as you can. The easiest way is to create your own ritual that you will do before working. Doing it regularly, your subconscious will realize that after it your brain should stay concentrated because there is work to be done.

In order to stay there for a longer time you should isolate all distractions. Put your phone somewhere where it won't disturb you, clean your desk from anything that will distract you, try not to open social medias on the computer either.


Another crucial tip is planning. You can't do much work without a plan. That's why before starting to do anything you should always make a plan if you want to achieve great results. There are different ways to do it, you can make a simple todo list for the week, check list or you can just put your tasks into a table. You should find what works for you and just do it.

Task arrangement

You should try to sort your tasks by difficulty, starting from the hardest one. As Mark Twen said "If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first." By doing the toughest task first, the rest of the day will be an easier ride for you, else you are more likely to procrastinate it and never do it.


You can't do anything valuable without a good sleep. You endure without sleeping for a few day, but your productivity is decreasing because we are humans and we need recharging as everything else in order to do the job well.

These are the key tips and trick that are helping me doing more work in less time. Remember: - "Starting is the hardest thing".
