When time is short, when you’re under the cosh, when life is full of project deadlines, when you are in a meeting with your boss, these tips will help you stay focused and get things done.
1. Do Not Disturb
When you’ve got to focus on a project, why not use your iPhone’s built-in Do Not Disturb feature? This will silence calls, alerts and notifications while your device is locked. You can even choose to accept calls from named contacts.
To turn it on, just swipe up the screen to get to Control Center and tap the quarter moon icon. Open Settings>Do Not Disturb to decide who to Allow Calls From — just set up a short list of people you need to talk to no matter what.
