Do you ever feel distracted by pings, notifications, calls, texts, messages and all the technology around you? Librarians work in a tech-filled environment, and these tech distractions can have consequences. Distractions reduce productivity and focus and can even affect personal relationships and your safety.

The webinar will discuss digital hacks and products to help focus your attention. We will also cover some non-digital ways to improve self-control and productivity.

Participants will learn about:
• Time management apps
• Productivity online tools and apps
• Ways to track attention and progress online
• Practical suggestions to focus attention
• Multi-tasking vs. single-tasking and how it affects the brain
