Are you easily distracted? In this article, you will discover how to be a productive artist – stay away from time killers.
Productive Artist – Stay Away From Time Killers
There is nothing that can put you behind schedule more than distractions.
You can not avoid some distractions, and you will be the cause of some if you are not careful.
When you become distracted, you will naturally not accomplish the job you were working on.
There are only two solutions to this situation.
The first solution would be to work for a more extended amount of time to finish the job.
If you work longer, you will be reducing the value of your time.
That contradicts everything I talk about.
You want to increase the value of your time. You want to work less and make more.
The second solution would be to avoid distractions like the plague.
Here are some common distractions that will prevent you from being productive.
Smartphone – unless you have an emergency phone call, put the phone away in a different room. So many people instantly grab their phone when they hear the email or notification “ding.” It is a time killer. If there is an emergency, you will get a phone call. Stop checking your phone when you hear the “ding” you can get back to all of your notifications at the appropriate time.
Social Media Sites – Unless it is time for you to schedule posts or engage with your following, do not go on your social media sites. Social media sites will eat up your time like the Cookie Monster eating his favorite cookies. If employees at a business spent most of their day on their social media site, not getting their work done, they would be looking for a new job soon.
You are the boss and the employee. Work smart, workless make more.
If you like white noise, put on something that does not interest you. There have been times that the television was on, and I noticed I was watching something that caught my attention. I stopped working, and I was looking at the tv. By the time I got focused back on what I was doing, I would lose a good fifteen minutes.
Five, ten, fifteen minutes add up. By the end of the week, you could easily lose half of days productivity.
Working at home is a dream for many people, but it’s hard to stay focused for most. You will have to work hard to stay away from distractions. After a while, you will have a routine that works best for you will get little to no distractions.
Your goal is to work less and make more.
