3 Tips To Stay On Task & Avoid Distractions (Your Time Is Valuable!)

With so many things vying for your attention these days, I want to give you some pointers to help you stay on task and avoid distractions.

We’re all guilty of compulsively checking the news, scrolling through social media, or popping into our favorite e-shops instead of focusing on what really matters.

Why? Because it’s brain candy! We are addicted to notifications and we’re terrified of missing out! But it’s costing you time, productivity, and money…


So, here are my 3 tips for you to avoid these distractions and get shit done:

  1. TURN OFF NOTIFICATIONS: Go into your phone, go into settings, and turn off all notifications except for the ones that are critical. Do you really need to get Facebook messenger notifications and WhatsApp messages in real-time? Probably not.
  2. SCHEDULE DISTRACTIONS: Maybe turning your brain off for 15 minutes helps you get through the day. That’s ok! But don’t like that 15 minutes turn into 60. Schedule chunks of time throughout your day where you can indulge in distractions and then stick to your calendar! Remember: Time disappears when you don’t allocate it to something.
  3. SET A TIMER: Our vices have a way of making us forget time – so, to avoid losing it, set an alarm! And when time is up, put the phone down and get back to work.

If we are running constantly in this distraction mode, then we will never learn how to stay on task and we will never get anything done.

Use these tips to optimize your productivity and let me know what works for you!
