Work is hard. Distractions are plentiful. And time is short.
Adam Hochschild, an American author, journalist, and lecturer
Life is full of distractions.
One way to boost our will power and focus is to manage our distractions instead of letting them manage us.
It seem like something or someone is always trying to steer us off track. We have a point of focus, an objective, or destination, then something comes along that captures our attention and points us in an entirely different direction.
Of course a certain amount of distraction can’t be avoided. The good news is there is something you can do to deal with these diversions and get back to being productive. The best solution is to simply accept them as inevitable, give them the attention they deserve, and then get back to the task at hand as quickly as possible.
Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.
Here at my house it seems I have so much to do it’s hard for me to keep myself on track these days and I’ve taken to making a list just to keep my mind straight. Other wise I’ll spend my days doing a little of this and a little of that and get nothing accomplished. And if you don’t manage your time, someone else will be managing it for you.
To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.
There is little doubt our world is filled with distractions. It always has been. And there is little doubt that those who achieve the most in life learn to manage them effectively.
It is certainly worth taking the time to recognize them in our lives and make the necessary life adjustments… after all, we only get one shot at it.
Life is simple, it's just not easy.
