Ever since the first smartphone appeared on the market, mobile devices have become an essential part of our lives: a source of entertainment during free time, means of communication with friends and family and later an indispensable tool in the work activity. But what if the possibilities of bright entertainment displace our attention during work?
The main killer of productivity! How do you think who it is?
Both at work and at home you can be distracted by various factors. If your work is connected to the Internet, then for sure you know how is to start doing some important task, and after a while, you catch yourself in social networks, forums, games or news. Therefore, we have to live among the factors that distract us from important things. The only solution is to learn how to adapt our work in such conditions.
In 1915 Albert Einstein presented the brilliant and revolutionary theory of relativity. For three years he has entirely devoted himself to the creation of this theory, without being distracted by anything else.
I don’t urge you to spend three years for the creation of one project, but such method of focusing is really useful. It was a little digression into the past, and now we turn to the modern realities: today the tendency to “do less” has become quite popular. And the key to reaching the best index of your productivity is our focus.
Focus. Make your device the best productivity assistant!
Any tools that we use should make our work and life more comfortable. Limit the time spent on distracting websites, social media, games, email notifications, and even text messages, install the Focuson your Mac to stop wasting your time and increase your productivity. Work with the utility reminds school. During a “lesson” the chosen by yourself applications or sites are blocked, and during the “break” they are available again.
The main Focus features
1. Meet deadline. Even if you have a deadline the wish to check mail, Twitter and VK is still to be strong. If the temptation in an image of the mobile phone with ease turn on your consciousness and doesn’t allow you to concentrate on the task at the most inappropriate moment, it is time to acquaint with Focus for macOS. Catch a minute of common sense and block the most “harmful” applications. Work on the report, the thesis or another essential issue without thinking about distractions. Access to the blocked applications will be open only for the period of a break.
2. Balance your work and rest. Turn Focus into the personal time manager. Set for example 45 or 80 minutes as working hours, don’t forget to determine break time, and the application will remind you when you need to raise your head from work, and when it’s time to start working again. Of course, many hours of unrestricted hard working dramatically reduces your productivity. But long breaks do not help to get any result. Focus allows you to set any period for work and rest.
3. Keep motivated. If you visit the blocked by yourself page, you will see a gray screen with the motivating quote or picture which you can choose from offered settings or create by your own. It will help you to keep in mind a sight on full completion of a task and to keep the necessary spirit.
4. Check your progress. With the help of built-in analytics, you can monitor your performance – the amount of done work, time spent on work and rest, the number of tasks completed. This analytic allows you to assess at what stage on the way to the target you are and make adjustments to the pace of your work. Sometimes the best way to motivate yourself to continue working is to see your progress
5. Plan your time. By scheduling tasks, it will be easier for you to finish all you essential tasks on time and without stress. Feel that you keep everything under control.
