Congrats to Our Windows Phone 7 Winner!

First, I want to thank all of the Met members who participated in our Windows Phone 7 contest! Your productivity and creativity boosting tips were excellent and I’m sure many of us will refer back to that post to seek your advice when we find ourselves in a slump. Using, we just selected our winner and that person is…Emily Kunkel! Emily had this tip to share: “One way I boost my productivity is by overcoming procrastination. This means that when working on a project, I allot 30 minutes to get all my Facebook checking and emailing out of the way, and then work only on the project for a few hours. I make sure to give myself breaks, as well, and if I have a hard time starting my project or paper, I put on some music, brew a cup of tea, and get working.” A great answer, don’t you think? For those of you who didn’t win this time, you’ll have plenty of opportunities in the future to win some fantastic prizes. In fact, we’re lining one up right now that should be launching within the next few weeks. Keep checking back with us for more chances to win. Thanks, everyone!
