How does anyone get productive things done in this age of distraction ? So much to grab our attention and take our focus off the goal in our sights .
I want to highlight five things that can take us off purpose :
1. Drama – yes we all know someone who creates drama and exhausts us all in the process. Don't subscribe to the drama channel and avoid it taking you off focus.
2.Deception – Some in our circle of contact may in fact have a hidden agenda. Don't become paranoid looking for deception , but understand at times it will be trying to take you off course .
3.Distraction – Emails, mobile phones, applications, social media … need I say more. Apply the duct tape if you need to !
4. Disrespect – When others disrespect our wishes , our values or even just show no manners we can lose focus on what we are here for. We can also disrespect ourself by not holding ourself accountable to the same standards we set for others.
5. Defiance – and lastly we can lose focus when we meet outright hostility. Most of the time it is nothing we have done and everything to do with the other person's issues.
Stay focused and you will be a rare gem in this age of distraction.
