Consider this first:
I have devised ways and means to capture the productivity matrix without “subscribing to the tools” to do it. There’s a lot unfolding there, and I blame the social media (and digital tools) to get work done. You need to strike a balance between getting work done and the repetitive system of notifications impeding your workflow.
One needs to find enough balance to maintain a Twitter presence, for example, and avoid the notification systems”; it creates a constant urge to switch contexts; creates a system of “comparison” and impedes your productivity. I’d be dipping into this in future blog posts, but for sanity, switch off your social media and stay focused on the task.
