13 Best Productivity Tools for 2020

Have you ever procrastinated your essential tasks doing unnecessary stuff like watching YouTube videos?

Ever had a vital work undone because you were wasting time on Facebook?

Well, I have!

Not once but several times.

Spending time on social media is addictive and many times, a waste of time.

Every time you have an important task at hand, you feel propelled to open social media platforms.

Though you feel determined to spend only 5 minutes on them, it goes on to half an hour, decreasing your productivity to a great extent.

But thankfully, the same technology that brought in these distracting platforms has developed an antidote to its addiction to improve our productivity.

Here is my favourite list of Best Productivity Tools
