Have no time to invest in what your business or organization needs the most? This post is part of a productivity series aimed at helping you optimize your time management.
Skype chats, email notifications, Twitter and Facebook apps, etc. are all extremely useful tools, but they can significantly reduce your productivity if used at the wrong time or for the wrong tasks. If you don’t need them, switch them off. If you do need them, use them only to accomplish the task you are dealing with, then switch them off. Generally speaking, when you are dealing with high priority tasks and their use is not required, check them during breaks every 30 minutes, every couple of hours, or even just at the end of the day.
