How to turn your iPhone back into a productive too again
Start by removing the apps you no longer need or desire on your iPhone. And then if you have the guts, delete Netflix, and replace it with something much more productive like Audible.

The iPhone you have in your pocket is an incredibly powerful tool. You’ve heard the idea before, I’m sure. That it holds exponentially more computing power than computers that took up all the space in an entire back room at NASA around the time I was in high school.
At night when I’m tired and should be focused on getting to bed so that I can wake even earlier and start reading and writing, I instead find myself camped in my favorite ash flash workshop recliner watching the entire West Wing series for the second time.
What a waste!
I’m done with that this year. That’s a very bad habit that snuck into my life through the back door one night when I left it unlocked by mistake.
Here’s what I did to start the new year 2020 and the new decade in a much more productive posture. I suggest you do the same.
I deleted EVERY app on my phone, like Netflix for example, that is either no longer serving my goals as a salesperson, writer, and Dad along with anything else that I had not used in the last month.
What an amazing feeling!
The clarity and focus this creates EVERY TIME I open my phone is wondrous.
You must stay on high alert for each and every distraction that lies in wait for you in today’s world.
Perfect your environment and this will help you cultivate clarity and focus and help you prevent wasting so much opportunity.
