Conscious Computing Apps for
Personal Productivity in an Age of Distraction

Opera America Conference – June, 2014Photo by a4gpa
Who Uses the Internet To Get Work Done?
1. When you start curating information, does it make you feel anxious?
2. When you are seeking information to curate, have you ever forgotten what it was in
the first place you wanted to accomplish?
3. Do you add links to your Scoop.It or other collections without reading and thinking
and annotating the article?
4. Do you experience frustration at the amount of information you need to process
daily?
5. Do you sit at your computer for longer than 30 minutes at a time without getting
up to take a break?
6. Do you constantly check (even in the bathroom on your mobile phone) your email,
Twitter, Scoop.It or other online service?
7. Is the only time you're off line is when you are sleeping?
8. Do you feel that you often cannot concentrate?
9. Do you get anxious if you are offline for more than a few hours?
10.Do you find yourself easily distracted by online resources that allow you to avoid
other, pending work?

What’s Your Attention Focusing Score?
• Understand your goals and priorities and
ask yourself at regular intervals whether
your current activity serves your higher
priority.
• Notice when your attention has
wandered, and then gently bringing it
back to focus on your highest priority
• Sometimes in order to learn or deepen
relationships -- exploring from link to link
is permissible – and important. Don’t
make attention training so rigid that it
destroys flow.
