I’m Always Distracted!
Do you ever feel like there are too many distractions? Our phones, our families, our team members are all trying to get a piece of our time. If I could just concentrate for a few minutes I could get this done but I’m always distracted! You’re not alone if you feel this way and we have some great tips for you today for avoiding three common types of distractions.
Distractions are just a part of life. We can’t completely stop them, but we can set ourselves up for success to deal with them. How we react to the distractions is more important than dealing with the distraction itself. When it comes to distractions, we do a lot of the damage ourselves. Many of us don’t make a plan for how we are going to deal with the different types of distractions that do come up. We just let them happen to us and then get angry when they do happen. In this video we show you how to prepare for three types of distractions before they come along:
- People Distractions – Our families, friends and others who want to spend time with us
- Unnecessary Distractions – Distractions that come from not applying good leadership
- Distracting Ourselves – Focusing on the past, future or other places instead of on task
In the video, we give practical tips and solutions to address each one of these distraction types. We also go on a brief side note about “open-door” policies and what you should consider before implementing one. Follow these tips and you’ll be getting through your most important tasks without any distractions!
