Practicing discipline and a daily routine is very important in order to get enough sleep and have enough energy to remain productive for the whole day.
Everybody is struggling to get their day organized and optimized. You are all stretched between being an employee (or entrepreneur), a husband, a parent, a sibling and a child. And you also need to set aside time for yourself, pursuing education, fulfillment, relaxation and achievement. And on top of everything else and all your responsibilities, you have to find time to exercise and sleep. Practicing discipline can help you get hold of all those tasks.
The key skills that I have found so far in my quest for perfection, is parallelization and organization. I believe that the best way to accomplish everything that you have to do in a day, is to do tasks in parallel. And the second most important task is to organize your day in advance so that you plan time for everything.

Email organization greatly improves professional productivity in two ways: structure (how you sort emails) and behavior (what you do when processing emails)
Email organization teaches how organizing your inbox (all of them) can help you be more productive professionally. If you are one of those people that spend a lot of time searching for information and browsing your email in order to find that email with instructions from the bank, then this topic is definitely for you. If you are satisfied with your current email system, but you are curious to find out what other people do, then read along.
But if you seldom use your email, or if you are more of a talking kind of person, then this article is not for you.
The last pillar that I am going to cover is the professional productivity. Just like the case with personal optimization, here the idea is to do the things you do right. This is achieved by usually doing them faster, better, with fewer resources or higher quality. One of the definitions of productivity is “the effectiveness of productive effort as measured in terms of the rate of output per unit of input”. Or in other terms how to achieve better results with the same amount of effort.
