Are Distractions, Distracting Your Life?
Each One Of Us Has Distractions In Our Life That Frustrates Us.
The thing about it is, what are we going to do about it? I have found ways to stay on track by avoiding certain situations. I have also noticed specific ways of remembering other things so that when my day gets busy, I don’t forget about important details because of a distraction or multiple distractions. You may think multitasking can be helpful, and to a degree, it can be, but I do not suggest multitasking.
I do suggest little things that can become good habits, such as putting something right in front of the door at home or work when you know for sure you will need it. Another good practice to start can be to do certain things at a particular time, such as reading your emails and social media, and be disciplined to stick with your new good habit, and be sure to work on getting rid of bad habits at the same time.
If you set your priorities up ahead of time, you will be much more likely to get done what you need to do with priorities, which includes setting boundaries. When we allow distractions to hijack us, that is when we get off track and become a victim of distractions. Set back and analyze what causes you the most distractions, and then cut it off at the pass, this can be done in a very gentle and kind way, by telling others that you will help them, but not at this present time. Also, you might want to carry a notebook in your pocket with a pen and write quick notes to yourself so you do not forget and break your word to others.
