Staying Focused In The Suite: 4 Tools To Make It Happen

March 13, 2013

Do you find yourself getting distracted as you work? Here are four simple tools you can use to keep you on-task and get you home on-time.

I confess

I’m a procrastinator.  As they say, admitting you have a problem is the first step towards fixing the problem!  The thing is – I really enjoy procrastinating. I love time zapping distractions that do nothing other than make me smile. Unfortunately, I also enjoy being a successful colorist who can pay his bills and take his family on vacations. And since I grade long form shows on tight schedules, allowing my attention to constantly wander is not a formula for success.

Twitter, Facebook, Angry Birds and the inevitable “are you kidding me” YouTube video have helped me realize I need help to keep me focused when I’m grading – and lots of it!

How I learned to Focus

Recently, I was talking with my friend, colleague, and awesome trainer Jeff Greenberg about my issue and he quipped “Robbie , there is an app for that”.  Well, of course there is I thought, there is an app for pretty much everything these days. So, I began exploring ways to help me stay focused.

In truth, I’m still searching for the perfect tool,  but I want to share four that have helped me stay focused while grading.  Chances are, they can help you too.
