The amazing aroma of coffee is permeating the room, filling you with joyful anticipation of this new day. While your laptop is turning on, you feel motivated and ready to tackle the first task for the day. And as it’s ready for you to start working, you open your Internet browser with the best intentions. Next thing you know, you are either scrolling through Facebook or drowning in all those time-wasting emails.
If only there was a way to keep you away from distractions. What if I told you that there is one? And no, it’s not called ‘strong will’. Nor is it called ‘discipline’.
In fact, it has a bit longer name. ‘When I turn on my PC, open my favorite website’ card can be there to support your morning productivity if you go about it the smart way. All you have to do is to simply fight the temptation to put any of the well-known time-wasting, productivity-draining websites in the favorite website field!
Instead, make sure that the one that opens for you first thing in the morning does one of the following things:
- Motivates you to thrive
- Reminds you of a goal you set for yourself
- Supports a charity of your choice when you click on it
- Displays your daily schedule
- It’s an actual website that you need to use for your work
The sole fact that your first interaction with your laptop is a productive one, sets you up for success during the whole day.
How does that work?
That’s easy! All you’d have to do is activate this card ‘When I turn on my PC, open…’ and then actually skip all suggested websites. Instead, what you need to do is to type in your own favorite site that meets the requirements mentioned above.
Can you see the small button ‘Add another’? Yes, by clicking on it you can choose more than one website to open at startup. Take full advantage of this card, and open as many websites as you need to tackle your daily tasks. Just make sure that you don’t add any of the time-wasting websites and you’re all set to go.
And if you know yourself far too well and you just know that you will be browsing Facebook a lot during the day, make sure you simultaneously combine this card with ‘When I’m spending too much time on Facebook, ping me!’
