Do not get distracted from this topic by going to check out that message that just popped up or seeing what’s going on at Facebook! I have found a way to streamline my thoughts so they stay on topic for the length of time I need to get things done. The best way I do that is to time activities. I literally set a timer in my smart phone and work on say a client project for a set amount of minutes. Then I take a another timed interval to do something business-related like filing jobs such as I mentioned in last week’s blog. Of course I also need a fun break because all work and no play makes for a dull day! This way to reduce distractions works for me. What works for you?
