It’s amazing how much time I can spend (aka waste) online. That little notification ring calls me, and I feel like I can’t ignore it — it might be important! Usually, though it’s not. My new favorite tool is my timer — I set it for 15 minutes and when it goes off, I have to get up and do something productive for 15 minutes (put in a load of laundry, empty the dishwasher, file some paperwork, return phone calls — whatever you need to get done). Then I reset the timer and continue. I was surprised how much more I get done when I realize the amount of time that goes by — 15 minutes at a time!
