Jolly says one of the worst habits is "search sanity." She says an independent study showed people waste as much as 70 minutes a day randomly searching the web. She says the quickest way to fix this is to try a new search engine.
She also says "email overload," or the massive amount of email that fills up inboxes every day, is another drag on productivity.
"The average person gets about 100 emails a day, and less than half of them - around 42 percent - are relevant at all," Jolly said.
She says to get a mailbox-management service, like SaneBox, which sorts and organizes emails.
Social media can also be a time drain, and Jolly says apps like RescueTime track what sites you are spending the most time on. The app lets you set times to take a break from your current web obsessions.
Jolly also recommends managing all of your social-media accounts with HootSuite, which condenses all your news feeds into one place.
Jolly is the tech life editor for Tecca.com.
