How to Tune Out and Be More Productive
I am always talking about the power of disconnecting and turning off everything that buzzes, beeps, and clamors for your attention. It is not a luxury, it is a necessity. That's why I was drawn to this very practical post on how to do this amidst your busy schedule.
In today’s ever-connected world, there are times when you simply need to step away and plan for quiet time. How can you turn off distractions? Step away from the office? Maybe even take time away from the family for a few hours? Can you turn off the television, radio, not play any audio books for a few hours? If possible, you need to do so. Your mind needs down time in order to function at its optimal levels.
