Bored of the Same Routine Every Day? This Is What You Can Do

Inevitably, when you start adopting the plethora of productivity techniques ever created, something will happen: your life becomes rather routine. So, let me show you how you can stop being bored with the same routine every day.

Techniques such as the Pomodoro technique, time blocking, as well as the highly praised morning routine all get plenty of attention. What is more, the spectrum of time management techniques is spectacularly diverse.

Although, take the majority of these techniques, and you will find that they all have something in common:
