"...feeling distracted? If you’ve got a ton of to-do’s but can’t seem to focus, check out our top 3 productivity hacks below… & then get back to work!!
What you need - Boomerang for Gmail or G-suite.
How it works - once installed, you hit the “pause inbox” button when you’re ready to put everything on hold for a hot second.
Why it rocks - this tool helps you control what enters your inbox so you only see new emails when you can read them & reply.
What you need - any kind of timer! look for built-in phone apps, desktop tools or a kitchen timer (if you wanna keep it classy!).
How it works - basically, you set a timer to do ‘work intervals’ (25 min. is the norm!), then take quick breaks in-between as a pat on the back.
Why it rocks - when you’re tempted to get sidetracked, knowing you’ve got a set period of time will remind you of what you were trying to do.
What you need - an honest self-assessment of which tabs are actuallyyy necessary for the task at hand. ;)
How it works - just pull up every browser you’ve got, take a look at every tab side-by-side, save it for later if needed… then hit X!
Why it rocks - while it may be tough at first (…we know!), it’s kind of fun to watch a noisy desktop transform into a quiet zen garden.
