Here are 6 Things That Really Productive People Do from inc.com
1. Pick your priorities.

“Focus on spending time that for you is fun and productive.”

2. Go for efficiency. 

"Don’t take on something with a steep learning curve if you don’t have the available bandwidth."

3. Integrate your activities.

"Many people go crazy trying to figure out how to spend time with friends, family, work, play, etc.  Stop trying to balance time between them all. Find ways to enjoy them in a combined manner."

4. Actively manage time-wasters.

"Budget your time for necessary activities. Make a choice to limit non-supportive interactions that don’t energize you."

5. Be an active learner.

"…there are always new tools and new ways of doing things that can save you time on mundane tasks freeing you up for your priorities. Always be looking for a new way to gain back an hour here or there.”

6. Lighten up.

"Celebrate progress and keep refining toward a happy productive existence… Every completion is a small victory that adds up in a big way.”

Productivity is a big topic for Fast Company, we even made an entire issue about it.
