What's Killing Time?
Due to the fact that I have far more blog drafts than published blogs, I decided to pinpoint the reasons as to why I falter when it comes to blog and content production.
It's not for a lack of dedication. This week I have clocked in over 8 hours of dedicated Web development, SEO and WA training.
So, what gives?
Well, I decided to make a list of external factors contributing to my counter-productive tendencies.
- Kids (LOL, just kidding!)
- Men (oops, just kidding again!)
- Endless link looping
Notice that I mentioned Facebook more than once? YEAH, that's a problem.
Facebook doesn't distract me because I am using it all the time. It is distracting because I get constant messages, notifications, pokes, alerts on my smart phone, alerts on my laptop,
Seriously, we have to ask ourselves why we pay 2 and three times for a service we already have.
Do I really need the ability to see Facebook, emails, tweets, Instagrams, photos and and and... On my laptop, phone, ipad and whatever other overrated piece of technology I have laying around?
Get my drift?
Time for Reclamation
My conclusion is the time is long overdue to reclaim my most valuable asset...TIME
As I write this, I am in the process of simplifying my life and ridding myself of all the extraneous Time and Money sucking leeches in my house. The TV is gone, Facebook/Twitter/ ETC will soon only be accessible from my laptop or in a situation where WIFI is available.
AND... I will have a set goal with a specific and dedicated amount of time in which to complete the task!
Wow, see? The distractions are at a minimum and I bring you yet ONE MORE BLOG!
That's my rant for the day. Stay tuned for more.;-)
