Chances are if you’re anything like us, you’ve already been distracted several times today. We find that we are much more distracted first thing in the morning as we’re always thinking about what needs to get done that day, where did our phone get left, is it too soon for another cup of coffee?
Well, we’re already on coffee #3 so we might be set there for a bit. We’ve got our calming, lyric-less music playing in the background, and we’ve written out our to-do list for the day. So we might be in good shape.
But have you noticed that when you have work ahead of you that you aren’t super excited for, you tend to wander off? Whether it’s onto other tasks that are less important, checking your email, or even wander out of your office? It’s funny what happens when distraction meets procrastination – it’s as though they were a match made in heaven!
We decided to compile a few tips n’ tricks of how we deal with distractions in hopes that at least one of these will help keep you focused just a tiny bit longer.
At the end of the day, we all get distracted sometimes and that’s just a part of life. It’s certainly easier to get distracted when you’re at home, especially if the couch is sending you comfy vibes from across the room. Keeping focused, at least for batches of time, will help you be more efficient in less time – potentially leaving you with some spare time to reconnect with your couch.
