I also find productivity increases when the number of distractions decreases.  No emails, no social media, no texting, no phone calls, simply no multitasking. Set aside a specific amount of time and work only on one project until it is done or the time is up. It is amazing how much you can get done when your focus is on one task at a time.

    I try to be realistic about what I can accomplish in a day, and not to put more than that on my to do list. If I know I probably won’t get it all done, I start to see the tasks as suggestions instead of requirements.

      When you start to see tasks as a suggestion instead of a requirement is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    I’ve been working actively on reducing distractions lately. I’ve created “distraction-free” time for work and “distractiony” time where I can let my browser tabs get a little crazy, but there’s low risk to it, because I’m not trying to accomplish something. One of my next blog posts is about this topic and my experiment with it! Thanks for sharing this!

      I have tried the system where you work 60- 90 minutes on a task then take a break for 30 minutes. The break can be a different task, lunch, a walk, anything then 2 more work sessions and 2 breaks. That works really well for me when i am working on a big project. I like your idea of distractiony time. It seems like it would fit into my break sessions. I am looking forward to seeing that blog post.

    I find it interesting the the busier I am, the more productive I seem to be. Of course, there is a breaking point where I lose the healthy balance between work and rest, but if I have too much time on my hands, I tend to fritter it away and get very little accomplished. Weird?

      I have the same problem. I make a list of things to do to help me stay on track and not fritter time away.

    You’re welcome. I agree a break is really important, a break that is different from the task you are working on. So if you are on the computer, choose a task that doesn’t involve the computer and it will seem like a break but things are still getting completed. I personally prefer to make my breaks the opposite of what I am doing so if I am working I would do a household task or walk or do a phone call.
