I have been ensconced in this 5-day incredible event with mind-blowing geniuses around me every day.
2 weeks ago I wrote about how distraction = inefficiency. This was just something I had observed in my own life, and wanted to pass on the ways that I figured out to try to be as efficient as possible. Many of you thanked me for these pearls of wisdom. Well, you’re welcome!
So, yesterday I heard Eban Pagen speak about the very same thing. He even went on to say that distraction and interruption are the #1 priorty in business these days – both of these things = ineffeciency.
His suggestion is to get into a routine and do the same thing every day at the same time.
Make a schedule and stick to it. There are times to answer emails, engage in social media, do sales calls, take meetings, do interviews, talk to your friends, eat, etc… His experience is that ritual helps you focus. It takes away the need to wonder what you should do next that’s for sure!!
Eban suggests that the morning hours are the most productive hours to get the important work done. I totally agree. You have way less distractions, chance is on your side that there wasn’t time for too many things to go wrong yet, and you can concentrate and give the BEST part of your brain power to the most important stuff you need to work on.
We live in a world of information overload. Our inboxes are full all the time, the phones are ringing off the hook, and unless you make a commitment to turn it all off to concentrate on the ONE thing at hand, you are going to get distracted and in turn, generate mediocre results or maybe no results.
Let’s make a pledge to each other to have the most result oriented week ever. Send me your pledge and I will hold you accountable.
I pledge to turn off my email and phone every time I sit down at my computer to do anything other than answer email.
I pledge to write down my tasks, hour by hour on my calendar so I know what I am doing every minute.
I pledge to wake up at least 30 minutes before my children and take some time for myself every morning.
