Life Hacks #6 – Do Less, Achieve More

Life Hack 6 - Do Less, Achieve MoreWhat’s the secret to achieving more every day? Stop multitasking. By focusing on only one important task at a time, you can achieve more in less time, and with better results (unless you have supernatural powers, in which case, call us immediately). Whether your biggest distraction is your favorite news source or your email account, we’ve got some tools to help you achieve this focus. It’s time to give this hack your undivided attention.


Use SelfControl. No, not the kind you need when you’re deciding whether or not to have another dirty martini. Apps, such as SelfControl for Mac and  Cold Turkey for Windows, allow you to block distracting or time-wasting websites so you can focus on that new business pitch. All you have to do is select your biggest temptations, choose a time period to block them, and add the sites to your blacklist. Even if you restart your computer, you still can’t give in to temptation until the time is up. Scary, but productive. Also, don’t forget to activate the “Do Not Disturb” feature on your smartphone for total focus.

Check 1, 2, 3. Increase productivity and stay focused in your email marketing by creating a quality assurance (QA) checklist. From copyediting to SPAM testing, your QA checklist should be comprehensive—include every little detail required to create and produce a high-quality email. Even better, you only need to make a single checklist to reuse for every email message and campaign. Trust us, you’ll be able to sleep better at night without the nagging suspicion you forgot to do something.

Copy That. Losing focus by having to copy and paste text, URLs, and images one at a time? Do you frequently need to paste the same links or text tidbits? That’s why we’re obsessed with ClipMate. Not only will this program allow you to save dozens of clips at a time, but you can drag and drop, edit, reformat, and manage your clipboard data in a single place. Plus, your favorite and most-used clips are always one click away. Try it and you’ll be sending us burritos.

Thank you for your undivided attention… Now on to your next task!
