Home Sweet Home Clock by iluxo

I found this article via Etsy's newsletter- titled Craft A More Productive Day.
Easy & practical steps to carve out just a bit more time each day for my crafty needs/work.

I especially resonate with the 3rd point- Limit distractions

Maintaining your focus is one of the most difficult things to accomplish in this era of massive plugging in and rampant social media. It is far too easy to jump online to check your email and come out of an internet coma 20, 30 or 45 minutes later with nothing to show for the time (I did it at least once while writing this article). Limit your online interactions to certain times of the day and watch your productivity soar! If you can work away from your computer for any part of your day, do it. If you can’t, try keeping open only the windows or programs that you require to complete your current task and resist temptation to open any others.

I'm extremely guilty at this, I have so many browsers open with blogs to check out & after 2 hours on the computer, I haven't done any real work! Learning to switch off the computer in the afternoon is a good start, I find myself more focused to get work done than looking out for new mails every hour or so.

With this bit of reminder this afternoon, I hope to list up the many bracelets I have made over the past 2 weeks, the bracelet pile is sure adding up quick!
