Stop distracting yourself

The characters in this movie may have needed a notification to remind them to check email. You don’t.

It’s hard to BEEP stay focused BOOP when you’re const DING antly being inter BUZZ rupted.

Annoying, isn’t it? So why do you have all those notifications activated to tell you the SECOND you have a new email, Twitter at reply,  or Facebook timeline post?

If you want to do your best work, you need to focus. And if you want to focus, you need to turn off every notification–all of them.

Trust me, you won’t forget that you have email if you shut down notifications. You’ll just get a little better at letting yourself control email instead of letting email control you.
