How I Quit Burnout issue #25 (Get it in your inbox next Tuesday)

My story

I look down at my phone swaddled in a bean bag holder right in front of my computer to view the push notification that a Kardashian is pregnant. Learning this critical piece of info I announced it to my office mates right around me since surely they wanted to hear the news as well LOL

The problem is, that this uncritical push notification stole my concentration on work. And it wasn’t alone. At this time, I got 50-60 notifications a day from various apps since I craved being the first to know. Also, I’d have a banner on my computer monitor pop every time I got a new email. Concentration be damned.
