How To Avoid Distractions

It’s easy to get distracted from what’s important at work. 

It happens to all of us. 

We’ve all got other things going on outside of work. 

Getting distracted is a reality, but we also must understand that there’s consequences for being distracted.  

Being distracted can keep you from focusing on your top performers. 

When you’re distracted, you don’t keep your team motivated. 

Your marginal performers start to slack off because you’re not paying attention. 

When you’re distracted, you take your eyes off the bottom line. 

Distractions can be devastating to the long-term productivity of an organization. 

So you must find a way to avoid them. 

How To Avoid Distractions 

  1. Make A List 

The best way to start is by making a list of all the things you need to get done. 

Don’t worry about putting them in an order.  

You just need to get them all on a sheet of paper.  

  1. Prioritize Your List 

After you’ve made your list, figure out when you need to get these things done. 

Figure out what needs to be done today. 

If you don’t get something done today, will there be a problem? 

Does everything have to be done this week, or even this month? 

  1. Revisit Your List 

Look at your list every day. 

It should be the first thing you do each morning! 

This is how you avoid distractions and make sure to get things done.
