🤐 Today’s tip: Schedule a silent Zoom meeting to have company while you work.

For those of us who are used to working in offices, coffee shops, or libraries, the home can be a disorienting and distracting place. And loss of focus is a common byproduct of stress, which most of us are dealing with at the moment.

One unexpected way to get things done in solitude: silent Zoom productivity sessions. Whether you’re looking to make headway on a creative project, squeeze in an hour of reading, or knock off a block of focus work, you might find it’s easier to concentrate with company.

So go ahead and schedule a Zoom meeting with your pals or coworkers — then hold each other accountable in blissful silence.
