No Email Before Noon
A few weeks ago, Shawanda from You Have More Than You Think shared a wonderful productivity tip. You can’t check your email until noon. In theory, you’ll be more productive with your morning hours. I’ve been applying this rule to myself and I do feel more productive. I still need to check my work emails, but personal and blog related emails have to wait till noon. I’m more focused on my day job tasks. I admit sometimes I do crave a look so I can escape from my daily grind. But shifting email checking till noon, makes me work hard through the morning to claim my reward when the clock strikes 12. During lunch, I hit any email duties with high energy and speed. I then shift back into work mode for a bit and then blend the two till the end of the day.
