Cal Newport, author of Deep Work, is the expert when it comes to focus in a distracted world.
What we choose to focus on and what we choose to ignore—plays in defining the quality of our life. - Cal Newport
Staying focused is like fighting the system, and the web as we use it has been designed for surfing. A mess of attention grabbing websites unaware of our true intentions.
Fortunately, Amna provides a way to handle purpose-driven work in an effective way. It let’s you focus when using the web.
How it Works
Amna makes use of tasks as a mechanism to focus your thoughts prior to working. That way, any information you consume along the way matches to that work.
In some ways, this is proactive decision making. Studies show that it can boost your overall life satisfaction.
1. Make a To-Do List
The easiest way to be intentional is to make a to-do list.
2. One-Thing at a Time
Ichigyo-Zammai is a Japanese proverb to do one thing at a time. Set aside time and tell yourself to get something done.
If you have too many things to do, you can’t do it all at once. So prioritize. I call this intelligent procrastination. Amna doesn’t nag when you don’t complete things.
Be smart about what you choose to get the most value, and use the calendar view to work on certain tasks for a day.
And for all that noise and urgent messages, just make it a task and save it for later. As long as it’s on your to-do list, you’ll get it done! Your to-do list lays out your day.
Plus, if you don’t finish your task today, you can always come back to it at a later time! Amna saves your work 🎉
Amna is kind of this task player. It’s going to be your secret sauce to staying focused among the bazillion things you have!
