Time Management Tip

How to reduce distractions by 57%.

"It's about mid February" Peter thought to himself as he struggled out of bed. " ..how can I possibly achieve it now?"

How are you going with your plans for 2011? Are you rigorously sticking to your New Year resolutions or have you been distracted from making any progress.

Peter has had lots of 'distractions' and he hasn't even started on his 2011 goals.

So I got Peter to answer these questions and you can answer these questions too: Is this goal/task something that is really important to you? What is the benefit to you for completing this goal? Are you really prepared to put in the effort to achieve your goal? Are you prepared to push through when it seems hard? Is it still worth it?

If you answered no to any of these questions, especially the last one, then you will get easily distracted and you will not achieve your goal. So don't start. Forget that task/goal and move on to something that is important.

If your task or goal is still worth it then create a 4 point plan and get started now.

Distractions happen because you allow yourself to do something easier or more fun than working on your goal. When you are truly committed to your goal you cut down your distractions by more than half.

Find out what happened to Peter in the next issue, which is about reducing interruptions.

The BENEFIT of knowing you are really committed to your goal is that you refuse to let yourself be distracted easily and you can halve the time it takes to achieve your goal.

Have the time of your life this week.
