Don't Waist Your Time Online!
I am sitting in front of my computer eager to write my content. Oh yes, it will take me only an hour or two to write my article.
Mmm.... Maybe I should check first my mailbox before I get started. Goutch, I forgot, I need to check my affiliate sales, too! Oh.. someone just sent me a message on my Facebook page! Ring Ring.. I need to answer this call now!
OOHHH...It's getting late, and I still didn't start my article.
What am I going to do? I need to write 3 articles per week if I want to grow my business!
Am I the only one who gets distracted? Come on. I am sure it happens to you, too:)
The truth is that we live in a world full of distractions. There are entertainments everywhere, and even more on the internet, which make it really hard to focus on our everyday life.
So the question is, are there ways to stop wasting time online?
And the answer is, of course,Yes!
Create a To-Do List
That's one of the most effective ways to keep you on track. Write down a to-do list on a piece of paper using a pen. By doing so, you give a command to your subconscious mind and believe it or not; your brain will make you achieve all your goals!
Turn Off Your Phone
I don't know about you, but I am in love with my phone! It's funny, but I spend more time with my phone than with my husband:) Did you know that most people check their phones 150 every single day. That's a lot! So do yourself a favor. When you work, just turn it off! I am sure he will forgive you!
Read Your Email Once a Day.
I admit it. I was addicted to checking my email dozen times a day.
But hey, I have recovered! Want to know my secret?
Here is what I do. It's simple. I open my email only after work! That's all!
So if you are in the same situation, try my method. It works great!
Turn Off Your Television
Even though I am a responsible adult, I still feel like a child! When the TV is on, I often find myself running to the TV if I hear something that grabs my attention.
Yes, that's my weakest quality:) If you want my two cents, don't even bother turning on your TV!
Set an End Time
When I am not in a rush to do something, then I become less productive. I spend more time procrastinating and do much less than I should. I've read somewhere that setting a specific end time to my day will help accomplish my work. Which I did, and it works great!
Everyone has its own way to manage her/himself. I am curious to know What is yours?
