How many times a day do you get distracted by your email automatically refreshing and showing you have new mail? If you’re like me, it feels like a thousand times a day! Well, about two weeks ago I was able to stop checking email so often by making this one easy change to my laptop screen.
I’ll keep this short and sweet because I know you’re busy.
Move your dock to stop checking email so often
Our eyes natural read down the screen and automatically land on at the bottom where the dock (which holds the email and other icons) resides.
Simply move the dock out of sight. Move it from the bottom of your screen to the right side and decrease it’s size so it’s much less noticeable.
