\nMost of us don’t consider speed reading as a productivity hack, but it’s actually a great tool for doing more work. A person’s average reading speed is 200 words per minute. This is because our inner voice stops us from reading at a higher speed. Spreeder.com teaches you how to ignore that inner voice and read through passages at double or triple that rate. It even has an app, the Spreeder app, so you can practice on your phone. How does this help you at work? For one, it lets you go through those hundred emails faster.

\nWe all know we should have some sort of self-control. But do we, really? Did you control that urge to have that chocolate bar while on your diet? Or buy those shoes when really, you can’t afford it? The point is, we all struggle with self-control, and the more so when it comes to productivity. In a nutshell, SelfControl website and app helps you control yourself. It blocks certain websites (including social media) for a certain amount of time so that you can’t access them.
