Why using Airplane mode is an immensely powerful productivity hack that can level up your life

All great points. Too many people are afraid to disconnect for fear of missing something “important” while they ignore what’s most important to their own lives.

Personally, I got over this through a series of small and expanding experiments with turning off notifications and also using the Do Not Disturb feature. I prefer DND over Airplane Mode so that I can connect to things as I want, without being disturbed by the incoming pings.

It’s a process of training yourself not to go to the apps that will suck you in (email, Facebook, etc). I recently took a 3-week break from email without an autoresponder. Nobody died. Clients who needed me found me a different way. It’s all possible. :-)
