The Best Productivity App Out There

Are you on the hunt for the latest and greatest productivity app?

Been searching Google and reading articles with eye-catching headlines like …

44 Apps That Turn Your Smartphone Into a Productivity Powerhouse!

Really!?  44!??

Did you happen to get sucked into a vortex of endless options searching for that one special app that will keep you on track and on top of everything you have going on?

There’s so much out there to choose from. You can find apps to help you with stuff like:

  • Managing your time
  • Your to-do lists
  • Managing your projects
  • Staying focused
  • Helpful reminders

Anything you need and want that will help you be more productive is at your fingertips.

But how on earth can you possibly figure out the best one, or combination, that will work for you?

Well here’s the best productivity app out there …

Turn Off Your Apps!

Okay, maybe I lied a little.

I don’t have the best app for you. But all those time-saving and productivity apps are taking you away from doing what needs to be done.

One of the best ways to get stuff done and be productive is to focus.

You can’t focus if you’re always connected to your phone and distracted by your email, your social media, the world wide web, the bings, bongs, and pop-ups that appear when you least need them to.

Let’s not even talk about the time it’s taking you to enter all the data so that those time-saving apps will do what they claim to do. After all, they still need human input.

Those apps are not getting your stuff done for you.

Listen, I’m not saying you shouldn’t use apps. I’m just saying sometimes you need to get back to basics.

Disconnect from technology for short periods of time. Turn off your Wi-Fi. Hide your phone.

Instead of installing yet another productivity app … turn them all off.

This one action will dramatically improve your productivity levels.

Disconnect. Get more stuff done.

Now, get on with your day!
