Dealing with distractions
To achieve success in my business, I have to invest time doing what is important. Researching and writing new content, engaging with our audience within my niche forums and Facebook groups, modifying my website and being active on the Wealthy Affiliate platform.
At the same time, there are ‘time killers’ that I have to continually guard against. What do I mean? Distractions can stop us from doing what we need to do. This includes scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat. Social media can be used constructively to build our business, but it can also prove to be an hindrance.
One strategy I use to manage my time on these social platforms, is to timetable time each day to check emails and to browse these social platforms. I don’t spend anymore than 1 hour each day and that works for me.
I have come to appreciate how precious our time is, each day, especially when I am juggling so many commitments. For reason I have become a lot more organised. Being strategic in how I use my time.
