Create your own space, “keep your head down” to remain productive
Nice, short article by Fast Company that addresses a simple – yet rare habit – of productive people:
Keep your head down.
Now, we’re not talking about keeping your head down while looking at your phone. Or your iPad.
The article addresses the need for eliminating areas that cater to multi-tasking (which can be oh so counterproductive).
The FCPR office has several rooms that can be used for the “head down” approach.
No phones. No emails. No conversations. The point of going into a room and leaving the door closed is to focus on one task at hand, ultimately being more productive in the end.
What are your thoughts? Do you prefer a lively atmosphere with lots of distractions? Or do you carve out a space for yourself when you really need to tackle a project?
