Module Three: The Power of Routines

Case Study

Samantha lagged behind in her work because she felt distracted by an endless supply of emails that popped up on her computer. Her boss, Jenna, noticed that work wasn’t turned in and went to unearth the problem. Swamped by emails and with no routine to keep her productive and read her emails, Jenna suggested setting up a system to control the flood of emails and to allow Samantha to get herself in gear and complete her tasks. They set up a reminder on the computer that would ring loudly to alert her to a 5 minute time line every hour to check her progress and, then, dig deeper into her work without distractions and decided she should only peek at her email three times a day instead of being glued to her screen all day long.
