Online Business: Managing Distractions

It can be difficult to focus on work when you’re on the phone, checking emails every second, thinking about personal problems, and getting lost surfing the web.

It’s so easy to get off track with things when you don’t have a plan and a burning desire to manifest that plan.

It’s all about figuring out the things that distract you most and decide how to manage them properly.

Distractions will always be a part of many things in life, but when it comes to your online business it prevents you from achieving your goals on time.

How do you handle distractions?

There are several things I want to discuss that has helped me improve with my online business and productivity.

3 Ways to Deal With Distractions

1) Create a schedule

If you have no schedule you are going to drift and not be focused properly.

No part of your business will ever be a priority because you never schedule an allotted time for yourself to actually sit down and work.

When I began dedicating at least two hours a day to my business it grew rapidly.

I started getting more things done over time and building it up gradually.

You know from 8am-10am that you need to get as much work done as possible and after that you do nothing extra.

Having a set schedule will increase productivity and grow your business like you never thought.

2) Disable electronics

We all know when you are working if something interesting comes on the television we stop to watch it for a few or sometimes even stop to finish the program.

How often does your phone ring or a message come through and you feel compelled to check it?

I know for myself I would spend lots of time checking every notification that comes through on my phone.

Once I began to leave the television off and putting my cell phone away I began to stay on task much more often and after a while is became easier.

Sometimes you just build up a habit of checking these things and it prevents you from valuable time that should be spent on your business like researching, blogging, and learning, and doing videos.

3) Work in 50 min intervals/ 10 min break

It two hours straight is too long for your or however long you decide to spend on your business work in 50 min intervals and take to 10 min break to check your emails or your phone.

It’s all about taking that time and utilizing it to the best you can.

When I began working for 50 min and taking a 10 min break before getting back to work it was much easier for me to stay on task.

Much time isn’t need to get a reasonable about of work done, but focus during the time you do use is important.

Don’t burn yourself out.

Keep your mind sharp by taking a 10 min break and getting back to work diligently when your time is up.

You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish spending two hours a day on your online business.

Distractions can suck the life out of your business.

Following these three steps got my business on track and has helped me improve it by leaps.

Treat you online business seriously and never stop trying to make it better.

Make a list of distractions you are having in your business, address them, and come up with solutions.

In the end you will see how much further you can take your business once you get rid of the distractions.

Best Wishes!
