Minimizing Distractions While Writing
How To Minimizing Distractions While Writing
As an online marketers we all know the difficulties we face as far as online distractions are concerned. It is very easy to be distracted by “shiny object syndrome,” news articles, face- book, the plethora of training that is out there, and so many others.
But these distractions can be fairly easily avoided by simply not signing into them while working and Offline distractions can be a completely different beast, and with the plethora that I have been experiencing today, I thought I would share just a few ways to avoid the offline distractions that can often knock our doors.
1 – If possible, unhook the phone
This was the biggest noisy beast I faced today. Continuous phone calls every 15 minutes for a few hours. So, finally out of frustration, I simply unplugged the phone. Thus eliminating the problem immediately, or so I thought I did.
2 – If you can create a secondary quiet space to work
This is where I am writing this article right now. As once the phone was unplugged, I had more than 7 people simply arrive at my home to visit my family. Then I politely excused myself to come work at the local coffee shop which is thankfully open on Sundays.
3 – Try to develop some assertive people skills.
As for me, the hardest things to do when these situations arise is to be able to tactfully dismiss yourself without upsetting the other party. You don’t want to be rude to others, but at the same time you must use your time wisely in order to work on your business. There are many free courses online which discuss assertive personality traits and how to develop them. It is definitely a trait that can benefit you both offline and online.
These Distractions can certainly keep you from being productive with your business. Hopefully these tips will help you handle some of the ones that can pop up from time to time offline. They are much more difficult to avoid as often we have no control as to when they happen.
