The Shift Referral Program Just Got Even Better

So, you’ve got lots of friends, colleagues, family member asking you for productivity tricks. ...And since you’re already a Shift Boss, it probably sounds a bit like this: How do you get so much done every day and stay balanced? How did you respond to that email so fast? How did you like my Facebook post less than 1 minute after I published it? How do you keep up with all of your Slack and WhatsApp messages? As much as we all enjoy being a bit smug with our answers to these questions, we enjoy sharing Shift with friends even more… Which is why we created the best referral program ever.

How to Manage Distractions & Keep Focus in a Noisy Digital Age

Our digital devices are always dinging, flashing, or vibrating with alerts, texts, and reminders, indicating that we are constantly—and in some cases, involuntarily—connected. Information has never been so readily available, or so distracting. With so much competing for our attention, it seems nearly impossible to completely narrow our focus to the right things. But, research shows that focus is actually the gateway to thinking. Meaning that without it, your thinking—and everything else that follows, like productivity, performance, and concentration—suffers.

Tips for Staying Productive in An Open Office

Let’s start by stating the obvious: open offices matter. After all, there’s plenty of achieving and believing that goes on when the work environment is open and accessible to all. Equally, however, there remains the risk of losing time, energy, motivation, and patience when the productivity ratio—you know, output over input—is off.

The Top Apps for Maximum Productivity & Focus

Want in on a secret? When you have all of the apps that make you productive in one place, getting stuff done gets a lot easier. And while it can be fun to test out new apps as they come on the market, what’s more important is narrowing it down to the ones that make your workflow more effective, and (hopefully) enjoyable.

How to Fall In Love with Your Productivity Routine

I’m willing to bet any amount of money (okay, $20 at most) that “Be more productive” was somewhere on your list of new year’s resolutions for 2018. Honestly, it’s the type of resolution that ends up on nearly everybody’s list, almost every single year. So why is productivity one of those things that we seem to be forever chasing, but never able to truly achieve?
