Tips to keep you in control in a noisy world.

It’s a noisy world out there and we have a few tips to keep you in control. At Cascadin, we believe strongly that your software shouldn’t get in the way of your life. That’s why Cascadin isn’t as noisy as other software tools. You shouldn’t:

  • feel rushed to read notifications. 
  • feel like you need to know everything when it happens. 
  • be tied to your devices. 

These are all core to our anti-hustle philosophy at Cascadin. But, in all the noise of the world, it’s easy to let things slip by when your productivity tool isn’t screaming at you.

Here are a few tips that keep you in control of how you use Cascadin while setting yourself up for success on your anti-hustle productivity journey.
