One of the easiest ways to get control of your time, and get more done, is to simply avoid distractions as much as possible.
How many of you . . .
Have an alert that goes off every time you get an e-mail or a Facebook update or a Twitter update or a text?
Answers the phone every single time someone calls?
Surfs the Internet for hours on end, just for the sake of surfing?
Watch hours of mindless TV?
I could go on. Now, there are times when I've found myself surfing the net too . . . and get too deep into something before I realize that I just spent the last hour getting nothing done. I'm just as guilty of these as anyone else.
However, I don't get Facebook or Twitter updates on my cell phone. I refuse to let myself be sucked down into that hole.
What are your main distractions?
