Less Connected, More Efficient


BL Ochman smartly makes the connection between reducing your “online” time, and actually increasing your productivity.

Think this can’t possibly be true? Start with baby steps:

– Go an entire one-hour meeting without looking at your Blackberry
– Wake up at your usual time, and don’t check email until you’re physically sitting in your office chair (at work)
– Leave work tonight, and don’t check email until tomorrow

During each of these three times, you’ll probably still think about work. But those thoughts will be a bit more focused, unencumbered by whatever distracting email you’ve just read.
