The best way to be productive is to focus more on actual work and bare minimum on management. This is what I do :

1) Take one project at a time.

2) Make a vision document, basically what features I want in full fledged version of my application - Plain text document on my desktop.

3) Reduce the number of features to minimum required for MVP and make a to-do list for MVP - plain text document on my desktop

4) After 2 & 3 is done focus only on actual work(coding/designing) ticking off to-do items one by one.
