We check in with Think Productive UK founder Graham Allcott, who’s spending January only checking his email on a Friday
It’s Wednesday afternoon. It’s 4.45pm. I’m a bit bored and low on energy. Usual 3 options at this point to get some digital stimulation and feel busy and productive:
– Check my emails
– Check my Facebook notifications
– Check my Twitter ‘@’ replies
Thanks to this month’s ‘Email Friday’ experiment, I have none of these options currently open to me. I have nowhere to go. The gate to busy digital distraction is locked. So let me figure out my new options here.
– Do a mini ‘review’ of my lists and calendar and check where things are up to
– Start something new
Much better. The moral of the story? It’s difficult to notice your bad productivity habits when you’re in your normal routine.
