Finding some down time in a hectic life

Author: | Posted in Productivity 1 Comment

I found this article by Tom Basson and really liked it: 16 Tips to Simplify Your Life (and Increase Your Productivity).

As busy museum professionals, we can all make use of some of these tips. For me, I am going to focus on turning off my technology and ignoring my phone for a few hours each day to get actual work done. I am constantly pulled away from the task at hand to reply to emails. Although, have you noticed that people are becoming increasingly impatient for replies to emails? I’ll sometimes get a follow-up “Did you get my email?” email within a few hours of receiving the first. I fear that our world of instant information and feedback is making us impatient and rude. Which makes me agree even more with Mr. Basson’s #4 and #13…we need to give ourselves breaks. For me, my breaks always take place beside my iPhone. I need to stop that!!

Do you have any other tips for ways to calm down your hectic life?
