Thanks for the great feedback on this topic. Today, I’ll share a typical Monday Routine for me
Plan my weekly Focus Time and Time Away.
I used to do this manually, now thanks to My Analytics this is just 2 clicks. And, also fairly accurate. You can do this in the My Analytics site, I’m an Outlook person so, in the main Insight panel I access to this 2 options
- Plan your time away
- Focus Time every day
In example, Focus Time will show the following screen. Here we can automatically schedule 1-2 hours per day to focus. Just click [Book time now] and it will find empty spots in your calendar for this.
This is super awesome, and also super good for our well-being.
Microsoft Research and the importance of breaks and focus time
If someone ask you “Why do you have this Focus time?”, and they expect a more formal answer, this may help. Microsoft Research. They shared a set of articles about the importance of work breaks and “workplace detachment and reattachment” as part of the Microsoft Research group. This information is available here.
