Today we tackle the ugly monster of distraction.

We give you some valuable pointers that can reduce the amount of stress that distractions cause:

- Work on the 80/20, the stuff that matters and have goals so you know what to aim at.

- Time-box your time, including social media.

- Airplane mode is your new best friend.

- Watch your bio (= willpower).

- Social media vicious cycle (story time!)

- Go async with online reading, batch articles with Pocket.

- Tab galore is bad (unclosed loops!), go minimal, less is more.

- An accountability partner increases your focus and therefore reduces distractions.

- Disable desktop notifications and uninstall distracting phone apps.

- When you work work, when you play play (again, control your phone use).
