Tips & Tricks:

To get the best out of your tech tools:

1. Think carefully about how you use them. Are you using a tool for a singular purpose without being distracted by its other attractive but unproductive features?

2. Look at how your tools affect other parts of your life. Do they negatively affect other things that matter to you?

3. For social media especially, make sure that it does not derail your focus. Limit checking it to a few times per day.
