Manage your time better

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

When you click out of your work because you get an itch to check the news, Facebook, or a sports score,  it pulls you out of “flow state” and costs you an additional 15 minutes of continuous focus to become productive again. Click in and out of your work enough times, and you can go through an entire day without experiencing flow, and ultimately wasting our scarcest resource—time

You can’t get more time, but you can make better use of it. Take advantage of our free membership trial to read our field guide on how to tame it.
