Every skilled multi-tasker has a few secret weapons up his or her sleeve. For many of these people, coffee plays a major role. Why? Because it's loaded with caffeine, and it just tastes good. It becomes something that people just associate with energy. The smell of fresh java alone can instantly perk you up and get you amped for the day. Plus, when you start every morning with a sweet treat, it's much easier to wake up and be productive.

When you're balancing school, work and a social life, you're going to need to learn a thing or two about multi-tasking. Here's how a good cup of coffee can help you get more done throughout the day.

Have Important Conversations
Whether you're meeting up with a friend or getting ready for a big meeting with your boss, coffee can help you face the challenge. You're going to have the conversation anyway, so why not perk up everyone's moods and keep them energized throughout your talk by offering to do it over coffee? You can walk while you talk and get a jolt of caffeine all at once.

Use the Right Equipment
You can't get much done while you're waiting in line at the coffee shop, so skip it altogether for the most efficient day. Brew your coffee in the comfort of your own home with a quality coffee maker. Plus, you can make your life even easier if you have the Mr. Coffee® Smart Optimal Brew™ 10-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Wemo®, which allows you to program the device to brew a fresh batch of coffee at certain times of the day. You don't even have to be awake to start your day. Simply set it to brew the moment your alarm goes off so by the time you walk to your kitchen, your coffee is ready and you're able to start your day.

Don't Forget to Take a Break
This might sound counterintuitive, but if you take periodic breaks throughout the day, you're likely to get more done. You allow yourself a little time to recharge, clear your mind and get ready for the next task. Schedule a few coffee breaks into your day to make all of the chores and errands in between more manageable.
