Reminders: the bad side

  • We’re bombarded by reminders and notifications every day and this can mess up our focus.
  • Reminders cause context switching and distraction. They take our focus away from what we're doing.
  • Good reminders lose their influence quickly. The sheer number of them means we’re more likely to miss the ones we do want to pay attention to.
