Fighting Phone Distractions? This Obscure Kitchen Device Will Help

Look, I'm not here to tell you that your phone is a distraction.

You either:

a) already know that or
b) run a business where your phone is central to everything you do.

Besides, phones aren't the only distraction. Your laptop, a good book, the TV, anything can prevent you from doing those important tasks that will drive your business forward.

What I am here to tell you is that there is a simple solution to lock those distractions away, enabling you to get done what you need to get done and move closer to your goals.


It's a simple device, developed for bored snackers who might raid the pantry and destroy their carefully tracked diet by eating a one-pound bag of peanut M&M's (ahem, maybe something I've done from time to time).

The device is called KitchenSafe.

It's a timed lockbox where you can hide away any distractions for a set period whilst you do other important work.

And when I say locked, I mean locked.

Have a 30-minute meeting with someone important? Throw your phone inside and you're not getting it out until after your meeting is over.

Worried that the next episode of your favorite Netflix original will keep you busy until bedtime? Put the TV remote in the KitchenSafe and you're not watching anything until it times out.

Just don't set it for 10 days, or you'll be looking for the nearest hacksaw to permanently break open this $50 expense.

Happy working!
