« So, THIS TIME, I really stop Instagram, and get back to real-creative-fabulous work… Wait. Why does this jerk always post horrible pics of me? What did I do to him? I don’t get it… Just one more minute so that I can punch him virtually! »
You are snowed under with meetings, mails, calls, text messages, the report due yesterday to your boss, and your Power Point presentation is still … in WIP**.. .And yet, you are watching a video : « this Lama is soooooo cut ». Why’s that?
This is your normal every day life at work. Visual-interruptions, distractions, sounds and all kind of noises, all the time.
We, at Sparkle, get this problem all the time – especially Mélody, who actually do real work at night, and Zoé, because this is HER job, to find the most creative cats (and other serious stuff) online ! AND, we found THE App(s) that could help you avoid getting lost on Internet.
Easy to use, for example, Self control (Mac) and Cold Turkey (PC) will allow you to improve your productivity. How it works? By blocking automatically the access to the chosen sites for a defined duration (doesn’t need to be too long… right ?….)
A few apps that we love @Sparkle to bolster our creativity… 😉
Distraction is a huge challenge facing most entrepreneurs, but it’s one that can be avoided. If you like to listen to music while you work, check out Focus@Will, an app that provides special playlists designed to improve focus and bolster creativity.
SelfControl (Mac) or ColdTurkey(PC)
Amazing Apps to help you avoid distracting websites.
Free and they let you block your own access to distracting websites, your mail servers, or anything else on the Internet. You set the timer and have to wait until it expires to regain access to any of the above. Restarting your computer or deleting the App won’t change anything! So Patience!!
Tailor your mobile usage to keep you on task when you need to focus and to let you roam free when it's time to chill out. It’s free and really flexible, letting you manage the number of times an app can be opened, what times it can be used, and how much time you spend on it.
Lets you focus and find digital balance in a hyperconnected world.
Now you have no more excuses to get distracted AND finish too late to miss your yoga class, right ?
Time to focus *dudes !!!
*Yeah dudes, BECAUSE IT'S ALWAYS THEIR FAULT anyway
