Don’t get me wrong, phones are useful and have amazing benefits. But, most people have no control over their smartphone use and the majority of your phone use is not really productive.
Mobile phones are handy and therefore convenient to use. When you use your phone as your productivity tool it is very tricky because there will be several distractions. For instance, you are on your calendar application and checking your schedule for the day and there is a notification from your social media accounts. You tend to peek at them and unconsciously browse through the feed. Before you know it, you already spend an hour scrolling and forget about the schedule in your calendar. This is the number, one productivity killer.
In order to avoid being hooked with your mobile phones, you need to discipline yourself in indulging in unproductive habits using your phone. Enjoy your phone but make sure what you did with it makes you productive. Really make it a productivity tool.
