It is typical for a person to cut there to-do list in half for the best results but this may vary from person to person. Some people may need to take away more or some might need to take away less. A few people might need to add some things to there list. A to-do list should not be overwhelming and should never make you stressed or give you a head ache.

Some tasks you might not need to do ever because you over complicated things and added unnecessary tasks that just complicate things.
You can also decrease your to-do list by scheduling it for a different day that has more time to do it. If you are not in a rush to get something done it will not be important to get it done on a day were you have got lots of over tasks to do.

A very common problem that can lead to you not being as productive is distractions. This can be anything from a notification on your phone to the sound of cars. Distractions can lead to you losing concentration on your task and listening or looking at the distraction. This can add time to the amount of time to get your task done.
The most common distraction people have is a notification on your phone. There are many ways you can prevent these distractions. I will tell you some ways to get rid of these. Some distraction’s will be difficult to get rid of so you might have to find a way to ignore them and not let them distract you.

Turning off your notifications can significantly effect the amount of distractions you will have because you will not be looking at your phone every couple of minutes. Many people spend hours a day just checking there phone. If you can cut this down it can make a major effect on your productivity.

While you are stressed you are thinking of other things that are not related to the task you need to complete. This can significantly effect the quality of work that you will be able to complete while you are working. It is especially important to be calm while you are under a lot of pressure to do something.
If you are under a lot of pressure, you likely need to do something difficult. This can be more difficult while you are stressed due to you not putting all of your brain into the set task. There are many ways that can keep you calm which I am about to tell you.

The breaks will give you lots of time to refresh your mind and put all of your energy on what you are about to do. For the best results take a 15 minutes break every hour.
This will not make you take so many breaks that you get nothing done but it will help you refresh your mind and most likely make you more productive. There is no point in being stressed because it will not give you any benefits in any way, it will just make your life worse.
