I’ve been observing/analysing the reasons why I’m so productive at work (paid work) but seem to lose a lot of time on Ambisonia…. and there are a couple of key differences.
- At work, I dont read emails (or very few), reading and responding to emails takes a lot of time,
- at work I dont blog. Blogging takes a lot of time,
- at work I dont read other people’s blogs.
So I did a test, I removed iGoogle as my home page on my Browser. My productivity went up immediately.
Because I was no longer constantly side trackedby new emails, reading other people’s RSS feeds, new posts on the Ambisonia Forum. Previously, every time I opened a new browser window, all my emails, blogs, forum posts etc. would be displayed in front of me… and I would get sidetracked for, sometimes, hours.
So that’s my strategy. Separate out communications, research and monitoring from producing. So far so good.
Now, excuse me whilst I go and produce.
