TIPS copy

Have you been working on the Weekly Challenge to ELIMINATE DISTRACTIONS? Here are a few helpful tips:

TIP #16- PUT YOURSELF IN A POSITION TO SUCCEED: Prepare everything that you will need to work on your project.  Go to where the project will be done. Once you are prepared to meet your challenge there is nothing left but for you to start and to not put it off any longer.  (You can do it!!)

TIP #17 – TURN OFF THE TELEVISION:  On the day that you will work on your project, don’t turn the TV on (unless it is during one of your allowable break segments. If you do turn on the TV at those pre-appointed allowable times, make sure you do not go past the allowed time limit.  Remember, shows, and the completion of shows can be recorded.).

TIP #18- GOOD-BYE COMPUTER, GOOD-BYE FACEBOOK: Stay away from the Internet on days that you will dedicate toward your goal, except during allowed break periods. The Internet can suck you in like a black hole.

5-AchievingPerfection

TIP #19- PHONES OFF: Don’t answer the telephone during your work periods, unless an emergency of sorts arises.  Phone calls can be returned at your convenience, during your breaks.

TIP #20- CLEAR CLUTTER: Clean your desk and organize your drawers. Spending time on cleaning will help in the long run and save time when you need to find things in a pinch.

Procrastination Weekly Challenge #3: Eliminate Distractions

WeeklyChallenge

I always wish I were the person who can be tidy and neat. But alas, I was blessed with a laid back personality who does not get too bothered by clothes that are sprawled on the floor. So today, as on most days, my goal is getting my room clean. This venture is not an easy task. However, give me some music and a couple of hours and I am good to go.

Lately though I’ve been realizing that it really shouldn’t take hours to get this room sparkling (let’s be real, I mean, at least not as messy).  I often find myself checking my computer seeing what happened on Facebook, or if I received any emails in the past ten seconds. Or sometimes I’ll get a call where I must put everything down to give it the full attention I (mistakenly) feel it deserves. So today I decided, all those distractions that keep me from my oh so neat room will be put aside, turned off, not in use for at least an hour. And guess what? It took me approximately half the time to get it clean!!! This week I am applying this approach to anything I deem worthy of getting done. Any big or small goal I have this week will officially be getting my full attention. Distractions,  I will see you later, possibly next week, but for this week at least, my tasks, my goals:  I’m all yours!
