16 New Time Hacks to Boost Your Scheduling Productivity in 2021

It’s been nearly nine months since our first series of articles in the Time Hacker’s Guide to Using x.ai and we’ve been fielding ideas from readers and devising our own time hacks ever since. There is no better time to hack than an entirely new year, so to get your 2021 started with a solid productivity boost, we present to you the latest articles in our Time Hacker series. Enjoy!

What is a Time Hacker?

A time hacker is a fastidious bordering on persnickety scheduler who constantly seeks out new ways to gain efficiency in their time management. A true time hacker pushes their tools, even advanced scheduling tools like x.ai, to extreme lengths in order to extract every nanosecond of time savings, every keystroke of saved effort. Happy Hacking!
