Here’s a simple productivity tip. I call it “a block of time”. And that’s exactly what it is. It is so easy to get side tracked these days. We are constantly being bombarded with Emails, twitter and Facebook notifications. Even when you go online to look for the simplest piece of information, a few hours pass by and all you have done is watch people pour cold water on themselves.
One of the most important ingredients of success has always been discipline and in today’s over stimulated world it is more important than ever before. Discipline is not something we either have or don’t have. You work on it and you get better at it. But there are physical things that affect it as well. Our brains need food, rest and stimulation to work. If you are not well rested, or your blood sugars are running low, it will be hard to have the discipline and focus needed.
But lets just say you have taken care of the bodily needs. What I want you to do is pick a task you have been meaning to do for a while. Turn off all the other distractions for an hour and get on the task at hand. If you just make the commitment to focus to that task for one hour, you’ll be surprised how much you will get done in that one hour. But as I said, get offline and turn off that phone! Otherwise you will find yourself distracted sooner than you think 😉
