All of us want to be more productive, but actually getting there is tough. Fortunately, we can employ some technology solutions to help. For example, using software programs to track your time use will help you realize exactly how you’re spending (and wasting) your day. Turning on parental controls (for adults!) will keep you off of distracting websites. And using do-not-disturb modes during times when you absolutely must focus will ensure that you can keep your mind on the task at hand.
- Technology is both a blessing and a curse – it can enhance our productivity, but can also serve as a distraction.
- Fortunately, our devices have built-in means which can help us leverage them to boost our focus.
- For example, using parental controls can physically prevent our devices from letting us access distracting materials at work.
“Most of the smartphones and computers we use now also have built-in settings or additional apps that can help you reclaim your productivity so you can get back to using your devices for work.”
