It’s not easy to stay focused when working remotely. There’s always some kind of distraction. We’ve made a list of tools that will help you stay focused. TrackingTime
(tracks your computer time)
This application doesn’t just look great, it tracks all your computer activity and generates an audit for you. How much time was spent using a browser. How many hours were spent emailing. What music you listen to. Working in the background, TrackTime presents you with a diagram of your entire online life. It’s a useful tool to remind you of what’s important: if you keep switching among programs and apps with an interval of less than two minutes, you found an issue. Notational Velocity
(synсs all dispersed notes and stores them in one place).
One of the most difficult focus-related tasks for many remote workers is to collate notes, plans and research in one place. This application stores all your notes in a separate place on your desktop, adding search and synchronisation options across Simplenote or WriteRoom on your iPhone. It significantly facilitates your work. FocusBooster
(25 minutes per task)
This application combines your to-do list and time-manager. Make a to-do list and let the application track the time spent on a task. Each 25 minutes it will remind you to have some rest. It is a very simple tool to train your focus without pushing yourself too hard. F.LUX
(adapts your computer’s display to the time of day)
Looking at your computer or mobile screen for a long period of time could drive you mad. Blue screen glow may cause insomnia. Install f. lux and stay focused on your work regardless the computer’s distracting backlight. F. lux adapts the brightness and saturation of your screen to the time of day and keeps your eyes healthier.
