Distractions are nasty little things. I define them as anything that draws our attention away from doing what we really want to be doing. For me, this can be social media and internet surfing. If I want to get moving on a task, I need to turn the computer (and the phone) off.
Have you ever thought about what might be distracting you from making progress toward your goal? Distractions can be people, habits, food, alcohol, work or many other things. They quietly pull us off course, often disguised as excuses and rationalizations. Identifying distractions can be a game changer.
Now is the time to mindfully identify anything you believe has the power to sabotage your success. Write your distractions down, and then strategize how to minimize their impact. You may not be able to eliminate each and every one, but even erecting some boundaries and limits can make the journey to success a lot easier.
