One way to be more focused, is to remove distractions.
For Mac users, the simplest and most effective way to do this, is by enabling the “Do Not Disturb” feature, and hide your dock.
Using these 2 features, you will have a fully focused productive work space. You won’t have any notifications occuring, and you won’t have any red badge notifications appearing in your dock. Which happens every time someone messages you.
The latest MacBook Pro updates make this even easier to achieve with their touchbar. You can add a “Do Not Disturb” button right to your keyboard.
Instantly turn this on, and start your productive, distraction free day.
PS: This only really works great if you don’t have to speak to anyone for awhile.
