Ever wished for tech tools to manage email and social media overwhelm, then this second part 2 of my two-part series will give you the antidote and help you with managing distraction to boost business productivity.

In this episode, you’ll learn some cool tech tools to manage email and social media overwhelm plus a free cool Distraction Action Business Productivity Booster Workbook

Distractions are everywhere. From the decidedly-digital like how to manage email and social media (it is technically work, right?) to the very-analogue (like spying on the neighbours – because you do not need to know that they’ve ordered pizza again)…there’s approximately a billion different ways we can get derailed from our work.

Learning how to stop letting everything, from every ping on your iPhone to the mailman dropping off a package, derail you actually has little to do with willpower–and a LOT to do with the structures, routines, rhythms and environment you work in.
Which means, if you truly want to get your most productive work done in less time (and with less dings pulling you away from what matters), it is possible.

Sound good? Then this part 2 episode – and the workbook that goes with this two-part series – is just the formula and antidote you need to manage email and social media overwhelm and reduce distraction.
