For the last few months, I have been meaning to research the best productivity apps. So convinced was I that these apps will revolutionise my life (and yours), and make me a kick-ass working mother. There are not enough hours in the day, but a good app will help me cheat time, add extra hours in the day so I can finish reading a book in a week instead of my current one-a-month diet.
The best way to overcome your fear of spending a lot of energy on a big project is to simply get started.
Short breaks between longer working sessions resulted in a 16% improvement in awareness & focus.
For projects done on your own time, try scheduling blocks of 90-minute work sessions with a planned cool down time of 15 minutes directly afterwards. When you know a break is on the horizon, you won’t try to “pace yourself” with your work, and will be more inclined to dive into the difficult stuff.
Finally, ditch the multi-tasking.
I’m going to forget about the apps for now.
