Distractions will always keep us from doing the most important things in life.
Distractions will basically cause us to miss the mark, the goal. There are good distractions as well as bad ones. We can get distracted doing good things — maybe helping a charity, volunteering at fundraisers for good causes — whatever they are, if they keep us from the most important stuff in our life, then they can become harmful.
A distraction is something that takes your attention away from what you’re supposed to be doing. If you just can’t keep from checking your email every ten seconds, that’s a distraction that’s going to interfere with doing your work. It will cause you to be late, miss deadlines of getting your work done on time. So, we need to eliminate distractions where we can to be able to focus on the task at hand.
One way to eliminate distractions is by turning off smartphone notifications. Begin to do the most dreaded duties first thing in the morning. Eliminate or minimize negative people in your life. Take a break, get up and stretch, walk. Then get right back to the task at hand.
Just thinking about eliminating distractions, and doing a few things, can help you be more productive and stay focused.
Just a thought,
