Tip For Higher Productivity

This 1 Tip Will Amp Up Your Productivity and Creativity

Another day, another case against multitasking. We know that doing several things at once can hurt our productivity, but The New York Times frames this common argument in a way that makes it pretty compelling. The piece states, "Every status update you read on Facebook, every tweet or text message you get from a friend, is competing for resources in your brain with important things like whether to put your savings in stocks or bonds, where you left your passport or how best to reconcile with a close friend you just had an argument with."

To avoid these brain-resource-sucking interruptions, breaking up your day and designating a period to work on one thing at a time will help. For example, you can check your email and nothing else at 9 a.m., then work on social media at 10 a.m. Turn off notifications so the precious capacity in your brain isn't taken up by thoughts of something else.
