  • Yes friends, as the incredibly hyperbolic

  • title of this video implies, you can indeed

  • organize your iPhone home screen in such a way

  • that it will transform you into an ultra powerful

  • work robot with super-powers of productivity.

  • If that weren't the case, why would I

  • and so many other supposedly productive

  • people on the internet spend so much time

  • organizing their iPhone home screens?

  • It just wouldn't make since. So, lets begin.

  • Before we jump into my current set up, I think it would

  • be good to contrast it with the previous one.

  • So here's a shot of my old home screen.

  • Not terrible, but not really great either.

  • Aside from the game the game sitting

  • in the home screen that shouldn't be there,

  • there is a lot of visual clutter.

  • Alright, lets move on.

  • The main thing you'll notice with my current

  • iPhone set up, is that it consists of only one screen.

  • I've chosen not to fill the whole screen up with apps.

  • Instead, I've realized that leaving

  • some space looks a lot nicer.

  • Instead of trying to fill up every single

  • slot with an app, I've narrowed my choices down

  • to the 16 apps that I use most

  • or that are most useful to me.

  • The rest of the apps live in one of four folders:

  • Work, Play, Go, and Sift.

  • Choosing these four categories took a lot of thought.

  • My conclusion after thinking about it for a while

  • is that besides the many apps I have

  • related to transportation and travel,

  • most preform actions that either help me get

  • things done or help me have fun.

  • The ones that don't fit live in the Sift folder,

  • which I thought was a better word than junk or other.

  • My home screen app choices are also

  • set up to maximize my efficiency

  • and keep me from playing with my phone more than I need to.

  • On the productivity side, I have apps like

  • To-Do List, Google Calendar, and pomodoro.

  • By the way, the specific pomodoro app

  • I use is called Pomodoro Timer,

  • though there are a lot of other ones to choose from.

  • The second ideal, reducing phone time,

  • is why you don't see Safari on the home screen.

  • I'm trying to get in the habit of

  • writing down ideas of things I want

  • to look up so I can do more concentrated research later,

  • rather than interrupting whatever it is I'm doing right now.

  • That's why an app called Drafts lives in my dock.

  • It allows me to open it and immediately start writing.

  • After that, I can easily export my note

  • into Evernote, and process it later.

  • I also don't keep Facebook or other

  • social media apps in my home screen.

  • I found that keeping them in the folders

  • actually discourages me from using them too much.

  • Tweetbot and Instagram are the only ones that get a place

  • on my home screen, as I post on them regularly,

  • but I don't really find myself

  • scrolling through them very often.

  • A couple of other things I've done to reduce distractions:

  • For one, no apps are allowed to have badge notifications

  • except for the Text message and Phone apps.

  • I've also massively cut down on

  • actual notifications my phone will send me,

  • and lastly, my phone goes into

  • do not disturb mode from 11PM to 6AM.

  • So absolutely nothing will get a hold of me

  • unless it's somebody calling for the second time.

  • Alright, so maybe you watched this video

  • and you're thinking to yourself,

  • "Wait a minute, that guy made a speed reading

  • video last week, and he promised me another

  • speed reading video this week.

  • So, where's the speed reading video? Hmm?"

  • Explanation.

  • So this being Wednesday as I record this,

  • tomorrow morning I'm hopping on a plane

  • to go down to Charlotte, North Carolina

  • for a conference called FinCon,

  • and unlike most of the conferences I go to,

  • at this one I happen to be speaking.

  • Given that, most this week has been

  • dedicated to designing that presentation,

  • creating my slides, practicing it because

  • unfortunately, unlike YouTube, I can't just do takes

  • over and over again until I get it right,

  • and hence, there wasn't enough time left over

  • to make that follow up video at a level

  • of quality that you guys deserve.

  • So, hopefully you enjoyed this shorter video.

  • I'll have the next video in the speed

  • reading series out next Thursday

  • when I'm back from North Carolina.

  • I'm gonna get back to practicing

  • my speech before my plane takes off,

  • and yes, before you ask, there will be a video

  • coming soon on how to make better presentations.

  • So, look forward to that, and in the mean time

  • if you've got tips of your own on setting up

  • your smart phone in a more productive way

  • or you have app recommendations,

  • leave 'em down in the comments below,

  • and I will see you in the next video.
