My tip for this week is to turn off your email and other distractions. Quit Safari, quit firefox, quit your web-browser, stop Facebooking, Twittering, Pinning, or Stumbling, and while you’re at it turn off your iPhone, and any other device that might interrupt you with beeps or chimes.
If you’re waiting for an important message, buy a good kitchen timer and set it for 30 minutes, 45 minutes, an hour and let yourself focus on your work. (I know you could use your iPhone, but the object of the exercise it to give it – and you – some downtime).
At the end of that time, get up from your seat, stretch and glance at your email. For 5 minutes. Repeat this process. You will find that you get much more work done, and are not so frazzled.
Have a fabulous week!
