Where will you focus your energy today?
Is you mind over-stimulated with unnecessary and unimportant distractions? Do you feel like your work is never done? Wonder if you’ll ever get to the bottom of the virtual pile/s? Or remember which password you used for which app? Have you lost your creative and productive edge?
You have 1,440 minutes each day to split between resting, eating, working, family, personal time, errands, housework, and many other things. You don’t want to waste your limited minutes being caught up in hundreds of daily notifications and unnecessary stress over digital clutter.
Choose a time and set aside minutes out of your day in which you let calls go to voice-mail; leave emails unread; turn down your phone’s sound, or just ignore it. Focus on one project at a time without distractions. This project may even mean doing nothing for 10 minutes. You’ll be amazed at how much more you’ll accomplish when you focus on a project without allowing anything else to get in the way, even if that project is 10 minutes of nothingness. Aaah.
