Are you jumpy like me

Lost your focus and jumpin all over WA's website, trying to absorb as much as you can. Here, there, and everywhere information and it is all good.

I had to take a time out from WA for a while(not burn out), gotta do what you gotta do type thing. Now I am back and ready to rock and roll. I firmly believe that the Wealthy Affiliate program will lead to success so I am ready to keep on keeping on.

Before my little time out I was working on the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp. I think about Phase 2 ish. Well it was great stuff for me, kept me focused and step by step. Well I am getting back to i now and they are on Phase 6. WOW! So I thought I had a lot of catching up to do.

Whoa! wait a minute not really because I always told myself I would go at my own pace, I am in it for the long haul after all(almost poetic). But I could not help myself all that good stuff from Phase 3 to Phase 6.

Well I found myself being what I call jumpy. Here is how it was going, jump over here look at that, no lets go over and chat(not again), no wait a minute jump over there look at that. Oh hey that looks interesting lets jump over there and take a look at that. Hey wait a minute lets try to do them at the same time(dual monitors and all that). Wow you want to talk about being jumpy.

While doing all this I realized I was getting very little done.

So instead of being what I call jumpy I have a piece of paper with FOCUS written on it and taped to the Monitor. Take a look at your plan and complete the task at hand(not again). I think I will even try to come up with other reminders to keep in focus. Background screens, popups, task bar reminder anything. But then again if I focus on completing that task, is that not being what I call jumpy, and out of focus.

Sure there are times when you have to wait on something to finish your task at hand. Go ahead and jump but get back to it. Make it part of your plan and get back to the task ant hand(wow gotta stop).

You know what, taking the time to write this blog when I could be working a website????? Hum mm jumpy?

Anyway bottom line is I can accomplish quite a bit when I FOCUS on one task to the end, and not jump around. Then the next, then the next, and then amazingly remember your plan and see how all of a sudden they all come together. It really gives you a great feeling of accomplishment.

Well you if I haven't lost you by now and you jumped somewhere else how do you stay focused. Maybe you don't have this problem but I think It is hard to stay in FOCUS. After all I bought into the multitasking era.

Oh by the way I think am developing tunnel vision. That might be a good thing in this case.

Take Care, all the best to you and yours, and FOCUS, Focus, focus.

I don't like what you wrote above. I LOVE it, because it just rings so true with what I feel and do. Especially this quote from your profile:

"Well I found myself being what I call jumpy. Here is how it was going, jump over here look at that, no lets go over and chat(not again), no wait a minute jump over there look at that.

Hope you follow me back.

True, true... I find myself doing this same thing - so caught up in reading blog posts and learning, learning, learning that I sometimes forget if I just go in order that this program was set up, I will eventually get to everything...
Thanks for the reminder :) I really like the FOCUS sticky note idea - I think I'll do that too!

Thanks, it seems to be working we will see how long.
take care

Thanks for sharing your thoughts... very well said.

Why thank you, and all the best to you and yours.

Great post! Sounds like you had a case of the Shiny Ball Syndrome...lol! That's why it's important to write down clear specific goals because it gives you a clear plan of action.

Also remember that your daily tasks should be IPA's or, more specifically, Income Producing Activities. Spending four hours watching Internet Marketing videos is not an IPA, however setting up your autoresponder sequence and email campaign is.

Focus is a skill that must be developed by consistent application. Keep that focus sharp and you will be fine.

Thank you for your input , IPA all the way. Take care
