Turn off the noise
By: LaTasha West
Distractions are everywhere; around every corner there is something to keep you from doing what you need to do. I find that we spin our wheels doing several things and get nothing done. It’s time to turn off the noise in your head and in your life.
We must work on being intentional.
Is Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest helping you get closer to your goals? If not, then it’s not a priority it’s noise! TURN IT OFF!
Are the Real Housewives of whatever city paying you? It’s not? Guess what…it’s noise! TURN IT OFF!
Still working on the website and logo yourself? How is that coming? Clients calling you yet? No? You guessed it,, that is just another form of noise. Hire a professional so that you can work on your business. Turn off the noise!
Giving away your time and energy for free? Does this benefit you in anyway? If not…IT’S Noise!
It’s time to turn off the noise and clear your plate so that you can focus on where you want to be.
Take a couple hours and silence all of your devices, turn off all social media, close your email and put up the real or proverbial DO NOT DISTURB sign.
In this time
1. Spend about ten minutes noting your goal for the day.
2. Take about 20-30 minutes to figure out what you need to do accomplish this goal
3. Spend the remaining time doing the items you have listed from step 2
Trust me you will be able to get much more done this way. Try it and let me know how it works!
