How to Be More Productive, According to Tech Execs

May 02, 2017

Technology is meant to make us faster, better, more efficient. So how do executives in the tech industry stay productive?

In the latest episode of Fortune's Tech-Cetera series, we asked business leaders for their productivity tips.

Kelly Steckelberg of Zoosk said it helps her to have clear objectives at the start of each day and not let anyone else compromise them. Lesley Slaton Brown of HP Inc. said she has a list of "must-do's" at the start of the day and she makes sure that those tasks are done at the end of the day.

Ryan Smith of Qualtrics said he has breakfast by himself when he's at home and takes that time to write down three to four bullet points of things he wants to get done that day. Laura Weidman Powers of Code2040 said she likes to tackle the tasks right away that will only take a couple of minutes. (She also said she makes sure to unplug at the end of the work day to feel refreshed for the next day's tasks.)
