4 Productivity apps to help you stay focused

Most people find it hard to make deadlines and focus on their daily lives and work because of life’s many distractions. While you work on a project or job, your contacts are sending you messages, calling you, etc. You can stay distraction free and continue to be productive. While it may simply mean silencing notifications on your phone or computer, the following tools will help you focus without much effort.

1. Focus Booster (Web, Mac, Windows, iOS, Android)

Focus Booster has been rated by many people as the best productivity app around. With easy-to-use interfaces on all platforms, Focus Booster allows you to focus on what matters while removing the distractions from your life. This tool is based on the Pomodoro technique, which focuses on high productivity with breaks at designated parts in the work schedule. With this tool, you get to cultivate working routines that will greatly improve your productivity. For $2.99 a month, you will be more productive, have more fun and enjoy life more.

2. Freedom

Freedom works like other productivity tools but focuses on iOS, Mac and Windows platforms. These benefit from its capabilities. As its name suggests, you have the freedom to focus on your work while muting social media, messages and other notifications. Unlike other apps, Freedom allows you to schedule your work according to your specific needs and concentration periods. Freedom costs $2.55 a month.

3. Cold Turkey 

Cold Turkey makes it much harder to distract yourself since it comes with the option of locking the settings for the best work experience. Just like the Self-control app, you are forced to work until the deadline has been met. You won’t be able to tamper with the settings until you are done with your work. It is one of the best solutions for meeting deadlines on Android and other platforms. It works well for those who want self-control, but tend to relapse.

4. StayFocusd

StayFocusd is a simple extension for the Chrome web browser. Once you have added it to your website, you won’t need to do anything other than choosing a website that you know wastes your valuable working time. For example, you are always tempted to check for status updates on Facebook. Click on the extension, and it will give you the option of blocking it. It will remain blocked until you remove it from the list. Everyone believes being distracted by notifications and other things mean that they are important. But, they are not. With these tools, you can be more productive than you have been in the past.
Envision Consulting

Envision Consulting

We started Envision Consulting for businesses that share our passion for building long- term and healthy relationships. While we might be technology experts, we’ve always known that trust, reliability and looking after a client’s best interest are paramount to succeeding in business. But in 2001 and to this day, there were few managed IT providers available that embodied our customer-centric values. There were countless support companies more interested in reacting to issues than paving the road forward for clients, making it far too difficult to build long-term relationships. We felt a strong pull to make something different, and we did.
