Productivity: How to Gain 21 More Days in a Year (Includes Video)

By The Numbers

First, let’s take a look at some numbers from ComScore’s U.S. Mobile App Report:

How To Find The Culprit

By habit or addiction, you have an idea of which app you use more than any other on your phone. If you’re still stumped, you can find this on your iPhone by going to Settings, then Battery. It may take a moment to load, but scroll to the bottom and it will show you which apps are using up the most battery. When you click the icon of the clock next to “Last 7 Days,” it will show you how much time you’ve had each app on your screen. This will pinpoint the amount of time you have spent on your specific apps in the last 24 hours or seven days. If you just walked through these steps, then you’re probably thinking “Ouch, what am I doing with my life?” I did this myself and it was eye-opening. So much so that I decided to make some changes in order to bring focus and productivity back into my life.

Is the challenge worth it?

We all need some time to spend on mindless activities like binge-watching a show or getting lost in our favorite app. However, when it becomes excessive, it actually takes us further away from our purpose and impact in the world. For me, this challenge was absolutely worth it, and I hope it is for you as well.
