Taming Time: Simplifying Life in a Digital Age


Hey, everyone! I’m here to share some insights from a fascinating chat I had with Jones Loflin, an expert in the art of juggling life’s endless tasks. Our conversation, full of light-hearted moments and profound advice, ventured into the realm of time management and productivity in today’s whirlwind of distractions.

Battling Distractions Head-On

Jones and I dove into tackling distractions, the beasts of our modern, connected lives. We pinpointed three villains: our inner chaos, the lure of technology and our surroundings, and the ever-mounting expectations from others. Jones shed light on a peculiar trend — the badge of honor that busyness has become, often confused with genuine productivity. He offered a golden nugget of advice: mastering the art of saying “yes,” “no,” or “yes, but…” to safeguard our precious time and focus.

Navigating the Work-from-Home Maze

The shift to home offices has blurred the lines between personal and professional life, nudging us towards a potential burnout cliff. We emphasized the crucial role of drawing clear lines in the sand to guard our work-life balance and ensure we don’t end up living at work. It’s about carving out space for work and life, without letting one overtake the other.

The conversation took a turn towards the flexibility in work styles and the peril of the silent resignation wave — when folks drift away, physically present but disengaged, due to vague expectations and misaligned tasks. Jones and I agreed on the power of prioritization and the courage to turn down what doesn’t align with our objectives, making space for what truly matters.

The Scent of Focus

Jones introduced an intriguing aspect of productivity — the influence of our environment, even down to the scent that fills our workspace. He shared his secret weapon: a diffuser puffing out white tea and thyme to sharpen his focus. We chuckled over my curiosity about a whiskey-scented version, pondering the personalized aromas that might boost our concentration.

As we wrapped up, Jones extended an invitation to continue the dialogue on LinkedIn, sharing more tips and strategies for conquering the chaos. I closed our chat by reminding everyone that time is our most valuable asset, and we must wield it wisely. Big thanks to Jones for the insights and to all of you for tuning in. Let’s keep striving to make every moment count, creating spaces that inspire focus and foster balance in this digital era.
