Welcome back! Last week we laid the path for you to discover your core purpose; now we’ll find out what is taking you off course by distracting you.
Is it email? People in your workspace? Texting? Social media? All of the above combined?
Whatever it is, it’s time to eliminate distractions and the stress that comes with it.
Block the websites, mute or turn off your phone, install concertina wire around your office if that’s what it takes!
Take control of your space so you can be productive in whatever you decide to devote your time to. Don’t make excuses, this is your time.
One of the most efficient time management tools is to minimize distractions; those things that don’t get you close to your goals.
Try doing this for a week: Next time you allow yourself to get distracted and interrupted, stop and write down what you were doing, what interrupted you, how you were feeling right before you switch tasks.
Sometimes we allow ourselves to go adrift when we’re experiencing uncomfortable emotions like frustration, boredom, or lack of interest. These reactions are a crutch and a compulsion; learned addictive responses that we can learn to overcome and change, starting simply by becoming aware of them and why we’re actually using them.
Let’s face whatever task we’re working on as a challenge, and take it head on, keeping our eyes on the end goal.
Next week we’ll talk about how we can learn to say NO to daily pleasurable distractions in order to say YES to the greatness of life.
