How many times a day do you check your email?
Or any modern tool that beeps and dings for your attention?
Here’s a challenge for you:
- Count them. Each time you check a communication tool, take note, tallying up throughout the day.
- Gulp them. Set 2-3 times in the day where you will gulp the communications you would normally sip throughout the day.
- Go deeper. Use the time you saved to dedicate deeper focus to your work – deeper focus often means better results.
We can’t always choose to forgo these tools when they’re integral to our team, but we can choose to do the same, but deeper.
