Your Phone: Friend or Foe?

“I’m just gonna check Facebook real quick … just gonna play one game and then I’ll get back to work.” 

Then there you are, 30 minutes later, wondering where your day went. How does it happen?  

It’s our fabulous phones! They can be a powerful productivity tool, putting you in charge of your time management with fast access to information and an array of productivity apps to help you work smarter. 

But our phones can also be our mortal enemy. The same marvelous accessibility can suck you into time drains before you realize it’s happening. Just 15 or 20 minutes a few times a day can take away an hour that you might wish you had spent doing something else. 

Here’s my surefire solution to eliminating the time drains and getting you back on track to better productivity!

Here’s another trick you can use to cut down on device distractions. 

If I can do it, you can too. I know you got this!

    Hey Katie, totally agree 🙂 would rather use the time doing something I CHOOSE to do rather than on something I do to NUMB or to DISTRACT or out of HABIT. Love all you do, take care xx J
