Published 9 months agoΒ β€’Β 2 min read

​

Hello Reader,

I was shooting two series for my Podcast with a great creator - a 22-year-old entrepreneur in the AI sphere - Paul Couvert, and Ankur Patel - an entrepreneur with 15 years of relevant experience in AI and ML.
The first one will be released the following week.

But today, we will discuss Distraction Management. I believe it is one of the most essential skills you must master nowadays.
​

You will learn today:​
β€’ 5 best tools to fight distractions and improve your focus, which I use daily.

Here are some stats that highlight the importance of the problem:

1). As many as 79% of workers feel distracted during a workday, and 68% of people don’t believe they have enough uninterrupted focus time during their day

2). When we are being interrupted, it takes us more than 25 minutes to return to our task

3). 62% of workers in the US, UK, and Australia believe that minimizing distractions in their office is essential for conducting business

4). Distractions can double the chance of making an error at work


The five best tools I use daily.

I've prepared a short guide to the 5 best tools I use daily to fight distractions and improve my productivity. (none of them are affiliated)

I've also recorded a short video for each one of them.


1. Freedom App (freedom.to).

One of the most effective tools to block any distractions. I use it daily. Remember to set up everything: which apps and websites should be blocked.

Over 2,500,000 users worldwide. Freedom users report gaining 2.5 hours of productive time each day.
