“How to Easily Break Free From Distractions with Some Simple Time Management Solutions”

With the everyday hustle and bustle of our normal daily activities, it gets harder and harder to be able to focus, let alone concentrate, on productive ways of reaching our goals. Believe me, as a father of one 10 year old boy, who by the way thinks he’s 18 ;-),  and one 2 ½ year old boy, I know exactly how it feels to not be able to focus on making things happen for yourself.

This is exactly why I’ve begun to implement these time management solutions shared with me by one of my many mentors in the home business industry.

You might not know this but I have a tendency, like many of you, to get easily frustrated and overwhelmed when I can’t focus (Yes, I am normal just like you. At least that’s what my momma tells me :-p) especially when I’ve spent 2-3 hours on something that should of taken me 1 hour, tops!

In light of this, I want to share with you three things you can do to start breaking free of your distractions and start focusing on reaching your goals.

Schedule Your Productivity Time

I know it’s not easy, but scheduling your daily activities is a great way to find time frames in which you could use towards productivity. You’ll notice that there are several times throughout the day that maybe, just maybe, you could have done something more productive. For example:

  • Noticing you’re having too much TV time and cutting back on a few of your favorite shows.
  • Being distracted by…..anything really! We all have a small amount of A.D.D. at one point or another. Social media is a good example. 😉 But I’ll get into this subject a little more towards the end.
  • Spending 2 hours checking your emails, voice mails, and every other “mails” that keeps your attention focused on something useless

The best way you can avoid this drastic loss of time throughout your day is by:

  1. Purchasing and maintaining an organizer of some sort. There’s many to choose from, but my favorite is my cell phone. Most phones come with a “Calendar” option that allows you to schedule appointments and so forth. I personally use it to set daily activities such as my personal time, business times, and “goofing off” time. (We all need some time to goof off. If not, the world would be a boring place. :-p)
  2. Finishing up your most important tasks first and then attending to your distractions later on during your day. Remember, if you start your day off right, the rest of your day will go just as smooth.
  3. Turn off all media sources. That includes cell phones, TVs , radios, social media sites that “ping” every time you have a new message, and so on. These are all time wasters!

Importance of Your Environment

The environment you choose for focusing on your goal-achieving tasks is also important. You can’t have a “Million-Dollar” thought with kids running around your kitchen table, phones ringing off the hook, TV’s on a full volume, etc..

I know that of choosing an environment that will give you some peace and quiet and that will allow you to concentrate can seem impossible at times. But if you’re as focused and committed as I am at reaching my personal goals, you’ll make the time to find somewhere that you can call “Private Space”.

Use this space and set a specific time during your day that will be your “Leave Me Alone and Don’t Bother Me” time. LOL! (I’ve used those exact words when a little thing called “Patience” has worn out.)

Here, you will focus on ONLY what is important for you at reaching your goal, PERIOD!

Creating Distraction-Free Times during Your Day

Distraction-free times are like those 15 minute breaks you would get at work, were you can literally tune out your boss’s voice and not give a $#!T what he or she was saying. Oh, what a great feeling that was! However, it only lasted 15 minutes. 🙁

The difference here is that this is YOUR time, and it can be as long as you deem necessary!

Take a minimum of 2-3 hours a day to fully committing yourself to reaching your goals. (If you’re in my team, you know that this is minimum.)

Set aside this time, just like in the example above, and tune everything out. Trust me, it wasn’t easy at first, especially with the kids. But once you’ve created this new routine, it turns into a habit just like every other habit we form.

In Closing

    Thanks for a very informative article. I heard of AdSense but never quite knew how to incorporate it into what I am doing.

I am taking your comments on board and will work on expanding to multiple sites and building up revenue with AdSense. Thanks again!
