My daily routine for maximum productivity

Are you struggling to stay productive and focused throughout the day?

I know the feeling all too well. But, over time, I have developed a daily routine that has helped me maximize my productivity and efficiency. I’ll share my personal schedule and some tips on how you can create a schedule that works for you. This is a live post and I will update my schedule each time I change it.

My principle for max productivity is simple:
I don’t think about what I have to do next and I don’t allow myself to get lost in unproductive activities. I just do what I planned before.

Nothing else worked for me. The more “freedom” in my schedule the more time lost. Seeing the average weekly time spent on the phone in the past it is the actual proof of that.

I also review my schedule on a weekly basis to make any necessary adjustments. For example, if I start a new course, I might need to increase the amount of time dedicated to learning in order to fit the course schedule.

In addition to improving my productivity, my daily schedule is aiming also to improve my physical and mental health. I make sure I get 8h of sleep/per night and exercise regularly.

  • 6:00 AM Morning routine
  • 6:30 AM Learning session #1 / Running training
  • 7:30 AM Exercise for 30 min
  • 8:00 AM Have a healthy breakfast and prepare for work
  • 8:40 AM Leave for Work
  • 9:00 AM Work time, with regular breaks throughout the
  • 12:00 PM Lunchtime
  • 6:00 PM Leave work and head home
  • 6:30 PM Evening routine
  • 7:00 PM Dinner (skipped when fasting)
  • 8:00 PM Learning session #2
  • 9:00 PM Learning session #3
  • 9:30 PM Wind down for the evening (usually by reading)
  • 10:00 PM Sleep time

Each learning session lasts 50 minutes, followed by a 10-minute break. The topics covered in each session are based on my current interests (e.g. programming, language learning, entrepreneurship).

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I replace the first learning session with running training, which includes tempo runs or intervals.

Before lunch, I take 15 minutes to review my plan for the afternoon. This helps me stay focused and productive when I return from lunch. At the end of the day, I also check my plan for the following day, to ensure that I am prepared and organized.

My weekend schedule is way more flexible, I will add it soon in this post.
