You might be thinking that living in a digital era with the complete access to any information is an absolute advantage. But the abundance of information has become the major distraction for people nowadays. What may have seemed an advantage, now is perceived more like a major downside. Moreover, informational overload has influenced our productivity so much that we often feel lost and perplexed.
Luckily, there are some things you can do to escape falling into the trap of losing your focus.
Clear the way to achieving your goals by decluttering the space around. Ever noticed, how cluttered working area instantly kills your motivation? So make the first step to becoming productive by getting rid of unnecessary things! Make a list of stuff you will need for a particular task – writing things down will definitely motivate you.
