Distractions and delays.

Monday, September 24, 2012

After watching the SparkCoach video about using time more wisely, I have to say that my biggest problems are distractions and delaying what I actually need to do.

One example: Instead of writing OR doing ANY exercise today, I read and replied to a few e-mails, read an article or two and played games on my computer!

Now I realize I need to plan specific times for e-mail and reading. I know I shouldn't play games until my other priorities are taken care of and I really, really need to set my priorities in order!

What's a person with Attention Deficit Disorder supposed to do? Write EVERYTHING down? I already make plenty of "plans", but I have problems with the follow-through!!

    Make it a goal to not allow yourself a game until you have worked out and then limit the time allowed by specifying that in the goal.

    Hey this isn't just an ADD thing! :-) With all the gadgets and competing forms of media we're ALL driven to distraction: if we ALLOW ourselves to be!

Hang in there, cut through it all and stick with stuff that MATTERS!

    Ahhh Tresa -- that's that commitment component I talked about in my blog!!! We all are motivated 'to do something'....it's the following through and sticking with it that's so hard -- at least for me it is. So I had seen someone else's blog about making a commitment to themselves (afterall aren't we important and shouldn't we value ourselves??) So if you make a commitment at work - you do it - if you make a commitment to your family - you keep it. Well the same should be true for commitments to ourselves....I am now on day 7 of my commitment and while it's been terribly hard...I don't want to break a commitment to ME. Good luck and I hope you find something that works for you! (and yes I spend a lot of time at my computer as welll -- but I take the 10 min or whatever it is I want to achieve that day and DO IT. )
