Hectic week. On top of that, I’ve decided to blog 15 times/week – up from my usual 10. I’m not entirely excited about this new discipline, and I’ve been incredibly distracted. Facebook, Twitter and email are just a few of my distractions. I find myself refreshing my website statistics every minute just so I don’t have to blog. Why can’t I get any work done?!?! Then genius sets in. I need to remove my distractions.
For me, this involved creating a new user account on my computer. I call it my “Blogging” user. I’ve removed access to every program and website that could distract me. Check it out!
All I can see is Google Chrome with my three blogs, Evernote, Photoshop and some music. It’s been zen-like. I’ve gotten so much done and the feeling of guilt I’ve been experiencing is gone!
What distracts you the most. If you’ve been slacking off, identify those things and remove them from your creative space. Your conscience and productive bones will thank you.
