5 Ways To Defeat Distractions So You Can Focus On Your Dreams

business life simplicity Jul 30, 2013


You’ve found your dream, your vision, your purpose. You’re fired up and ready to change the world…

Key downer music…

You’re distracted.

Too much to do to focus on your dream. Other things that are far less important seem to be nagging you. In order to accomplish your dreams, your purpose, and your goals, you need to eliminate those time wasting distractions.

Here’s what I’m doing to get rid of those nasty distractions. {It’s not perfect, it’s a process, so don’t get mad if I change my mind.}

1. Make a list of what needs to be done.

Whether it's mental or physical, just make note of it. For me, this includes projects around the house, work for church, etc. If you acknowledge everything that needs to be done and start tackling it, you won’t feel guilty about working on your dream.

2. Be prepared.

Know what needs to be done and when. You can’t pretend, now that you have this dream, that nothing else in the world matters. Guess what. There will always be laundry! You will always need to eat, you will always need to clean. If you are prepared and know when you need to do these things, then you know you can’t sit down to start working on your dream at 5:30 pm. It’s almost dinner. You’ll get distracted, or worse, your kids will be whining at 7:00 because they’re starving and you’ve been neglecting them!

3. Be 90% perfect.

Well, you don’t have to be perfect at all, but I realized I’m a perfectionist so then I wait until something will be perfect {which it never will} and then I never do it. Don’t waste time trying to perfect something. Just do your best and move on. It will all help you in the long run. Each time you will get better.

4. Get up early.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Get up early. You don’t have to be a 5 clubber like me. Just get up earlier than you usually do. I promise there will be less distractions!

5. Be intentional with your time.

Some things that are beneficial can ultimately turn into time wasters. Like the internet, social media, rest, & relaxation. These are all things that may need to take up some of your time, not all of it. Be intentional. Set a time limit. You’ll probably enjoy these things more when you become intentional about them.

These are all things that I’ve been implementing lately and they seem to be helping!
