Its so eaasy
These are some of the 'Quick Wins' that I use that are super easy to implement when you're working remotely.
Face Down And Silent
The first thing that I do when I want to focus is to turn silent mode on and put my iPhone face down.
This works on the principle 'Out of sight, out of mind'. Another helpful tip is to place your phone in your bag or away from your workspace.
Do Not Disturb
On Mac, Turn on the 'Do Not Disturb' feature to hide all notifications from distracting you.
1. Tap the hamburger icon in the top right.
2. Tap on notifications.
3. Toggle Do Not Disturb.
90 minute blocks can be a challenge when first starting out, so instead try running 30-minute sprints, followed by 10 minutes of movement.
Each day, try increasing it by 10 minutes to work your way up to 90- minute blocks.
One of the things that helps me get in the zone and vibe out with some really great productivity, is to put on Deep Relaxation music or even binaural beats.
In fact, lyric based music is super distracting for my creativity.
Close Email Programs
Often, you will feel the need to respond to every email instantly. Don't. This will lead to massive disruptions in your flow state.
Instead, I often inform my team of my schedule, Time Blocks, meetings, and deliverables in advance and ask if it's urgent during those time blocks, to just call me or text me.
These are some of the 'Quick Wins' that are super easy to implement when you're working remotely.
