The greatest gift from Apple

Just as you get ready to start working on your big rock for the day…your phone rings.
Now you are really ready to get to work on that project…a text message beeps and pulls your focus
Finally, this time you have got it! Here you go as you tune out everything and dive into your one big task of the day. You are making a dent, things are going well….buzz, beep, ring, tweet…whatever it is this time that distracts you.

Squirrel Syndrome is something that many people suffer from today. Your phone lights up, beeps, vibrates and you just can’t avoid it. You want to know what it going on in the world that you can’t focus on your work.

Time to thank Apple once again. Not for iTunes, not for the iPhone, not for the iHouse (oh, you don’t have one of those yet? I am sure they will be available soon)

This time, let’s thank Apple for the greatest thing that they have ever given us…

Do Not Disturb

Have you taken a moment to set this up yet?

1) Select the SETTINGS Application

2) Turn on Do Not Disturb. As you can see this is in a very easy to find location on the Settings screen

It is that easy. If you would like to set this up once and schedule it just follow these steps…

1) Select the SETTINGS Application

2) This time, just below the Do Not Disturb option select Notifications

3) On the Notifications page, select Do Not Disturb

4)Now it is time to set your options…

You can turn on Schedule and set times to not be disturbed. This works well if you have some place you should be each day. Set this from bed time until after your morning blocked time and really get some work done

You can allow calls from your favorites to still come through (or you can select a specific group in your contacts) This will allow you to take a call from your spouse, your boss or anyone that you know if they are calling during this key time it must be an emergency

You can even set the Do Not Disturb setting to allow a repeat call to come through. This means anyone that calls you twice within 3 minutes will be let through.

Now you have been able to figure a way to focus better at work and avoid the Squirrel Syndrome that many people suffer from in today’s world of shiny objects. With all of that figured out…Get back to work!
