Chances are you've complained that there are "only" 24 hours in a day. Between work, your spouse, the kids, and all of your responsibilities around the house, making the most out of those 24 hours is crucial. If you're like most people, your productivity could use a boost.

So, how do you do it?

Follow these 5 tips. They can help you get more done without feeling like you're running around like a chicken with your head cut off!

1. Get up earlier.

This is probably the last thing you want to hear, but being rushed in the morning sets the tone for the entire day - and it's not a good tone. If you currently go running out of bed and into the shower, then out the door with coffee in hand, you're just unnecessarily stressing yourself out. By getting up an hour earlier, you can give your brain a chance to wake up and prioritize the rest of your day - without being rushed.

2. Never multi-task.

Some people brag about their ability to multi-task, but how focused can they really be on six different things at once? If you really want to be productive, focus on one task at a time. That way, you can give you full attention to it -which increases your chances of doing it well. By focusing on one thing at a time, you'll start to notice you actually get things done much faster.

3. Avoid "Smartphone Syndrome".

With all of those apps, social networking shortcuts, emails, and games, is it any wonder that most people are completely fascinated by their smartphones? However, all of the tapping, texting, and browsing you're doing is getting in the way of the rest of your day.

If you really want to be productive, turn off your smartphone and check it on your lunch break. Don't worry... that witty email from your buddy or that funny comment on your Facebook wall will still be there.

4. Hire a virtual assistant.

It may sound like something a celebrity would get, but virtual assistants are easy to find and inexpensive to have. By outsourcing menial tasks, you can focus on the more important issues that require your personal attention.

There are plenty of VA companies out there. Or, you can head to websites like Fiverr to find people who are willing to do easy work for low prices.

5. Give time wasters the heave-ho.

Every office has one - the guy who spends most of his day going from desk to desk, shooting the breeze. Sure, having social interaction is a great way to keep your sanity during the work day, but having too much of it can be a bad thing. If you get distracted by conversations, you're never going to get your work done - and you'll only wind up getting more stressed out.

So, what do you do? Politely tell your office time-wasters that you'd love to catch up later - as soon as you finish your current project. If you want, you can spend your lunch hour chit-chatting with co-workers. If you're consistently polite, you won't have to worry about hurting anyone's feelings - and you won't have to worry about getting distracted from your work.
