Distractions, I believe are some of the single-most delay-makers there are. The sad thing is most of us don’t know it’s a distraction until long after it has robbed us of our precious time. I want to address this one thing that we ALL deal with but only the successful know how to quickly ignore.
The word Dis-Tract tells me that it’s purpose is to Dis: take away traction: movement, progress. Put the two together and it’s quite simple to see how detrimental this can be to one’s purpose. The thing is, distractions almost always come in disguises. We have to be so focused on achieving our goal that not even fear (one of the most common distractions known to man) can stop us!Implement These Daily To Train Yourself To Ignore Distractions
- Schedule EVERYTHING : As much as possible keep a running record of your time (with alarms to keep you on track) I usually do this the night before so I sleep with everything emptied on paper.
- Give yourself mental breaks throughout the day. Distractions aren’t ALWAYS a bad thing. Sometimes your brain just needs a break. I often break and say “Okay, I’m going to allow myself to be distracted for a few moments as I know afterwards I will be ‘ready to go’ again”.
- Clear your work area. I believe your mind can be only as clear as the area around you. When I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed, straightening out a few papers and putting things in their rightful place helps me get right back on track!
