3 Helpful Steps

Mark Milliron describes several important sources of our "Overload" and suggests 3 useful, practical steps:
1. Turn off the automatic download function in your e-mail program.
2. Choose the least distracting notifications (if any at all)— for your hand-held multi-function cell phone + device
3. If you bring your laptop to a meeting, decide in advance HOW and WHY you will use it and don't let yourself be distracted into using it for other purposes.
