Go Paper for a Day

Today’s tip is to try it the old fashioned way, just for a day. Declare a non-technology day and do it the old fashioned way. Prioritize in the morning, bring just the materials you need to do your job, and spend the day working somewhere nurturing and fun—but without even the possibility of technology distracting you. You’ll work less and do more, not because technology is speeding you up, but because lack of technology is slowing you down and giving you space to think.

This is Stever Robbins. I’m an executive coach, and what makes me unique is how I align strategy and details, help you think outside the box, and bring a cross-functional, cross-disciplinary approach. If you want to know more, visit http://www.SteverRobbins.com.

Work Less, Do More, and have a Great Life!
