I've been wondering how the hell do people get so much done? People seem to have time to game, work, be social and learn new things, all of which I want to do but seems like there is never really time to anything. So how do you do it? Please share good tips on how to be productive, how to be social online and such?

Yeah I have the same issue.:/ I guess trying to "escape" constantly makes it hard to concentrate enough to actually get anywhere with stuff one wants to do.

For me, regarding entertainment and learning, I mix them both.

When I want to eat and watch something, for example, I'd watch sometimes watch something that would provide me with a piece of knowledge from a design or business video. If I watch something like cartoons/anime or movies, I'd notice good things in it from animation style, art style, cinematography, story-telling, etc, and I'd hope to remember them while I'm doing something that's needs them.

So my two times of entertainment and learning is mixed into one, and when I'd be doing work, I'd try to apply what I've learned where I can.

Trying something drastic, I went and placed my computer in storage, so even if I wanted to use it, I can't get it out until in one week. XD So maybe now I will be little more productive with things like actually be out photographing or if I want to stay in a café the only thing I have to do is to write or learn to draw.

Personally I've been most motivated by need.

When I had no social life, no girlfriend, etc I started to get extremely bored with and bummed out by video games. I couldn't even escape if I wanted to. I still had to push myself to improve my life, but I could tell deep down I needed a change. Basically I had to listen to my feelings and not let anything get in the way of doing the stuff I wanted to do. I think you'll probably have to not give in to a want to 'escape' and after that you will be able to make the changes you need.

In the end it rarely means I'm doing EVERYTHING at one time. A few things take priority at a time.

Interest is key,. To identify it, try looking out for things that you may or may not like. From that develop a pool of key elements shared across all of those things while keeping an eye out for things that can fit your criteria.

Think of this like going on a restaurant & picking something new from the menu because it has ingredients that you like individually. From there experiment, compare & contrast as your interest grows a bit more each day. After which interest becomes the driving force of your productivity.

This productivity doesn't necessarily mean that it is tied to just work, but rather progressing mentally as well. Think of it this way, traditional work such as errands, jobs, among others are physical productivity that you can do on a daily basis while mental productivity can be more along the lines of discovering new shops nearby, learning the fastest route possible & reading a book. This may sound small, but these things can help in problem solving & help raise interest for social interations in the future. For example, say that by learning the fastest route possible to campus or work can help develop a much cleaner schedule, or maybe reading that book contained a solution you never thought possible & apply that into a situation later in life.

Small, misc. things like that help raise productivity believe it or not. This in turn helps you grow more knowledgeable of your surroundings & yourself thus allowng you to be social.

Social can take a lot of practice & patience. So let's start small. While exploring new interests try finding others with similar interests, you can make small talk from that & develop more conversations each time. Here's an example, say someone has a shirt that has a cool design to it that you recognize & are a fan of. You can approach that person & compliment on their apparel while asking if they're also a fan of that.

This is one of many ways to enter & engage people on a regular basis. You can also try being helpful by offering on the first instance you have if you see someone that needs a quick fix. Say for example, someone has their shoe untied or their backback is open, you can offer them to help close the backpack or by generally warn them about it. This icebreaker can help develop conversations if need be, it doesn't work 100% of the time, but being open & helpful can lead to a healthy relationship.

You can take it over here in the online space as well, since it's much easier to find people with similar interests. Say gaming for example, specific games can lead to a more wide arrange of people, & so on & so forth. It all takes a lot of practice, but if you keep yourself pushing the limit more & more you'll feel productive & healthy as you can ever be.

Hope this helps clear up somethings OP! If you need anything else, feel free to ask! I'm more than happy to help out!
