We spend a lot of time doing nothing.

For real…

Most people I do this with have Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or twitter topping the list. All great ways to waste time…

Here is what I would suggest if you’re looking to be more productive:

Learn to put the phone down.

Designated Distraction Hours

Take 3 points throughout the day to check emails, check Facebook (or other social media) and buzz through your texts. Actually schedule those times through the day in your iCal, google Calendar journal or otherwise.

Set aside time to intentionally do these things. If it’s work related or not, you’ll be much more productive.

But what if I miss something?

Don’t worry, Trump is doing something ridiculous every few hours. You’ll catch the next one.

If it’s important, people will call you. You won’t miss anything. It’ll be okay. Set aside designated hours and get distracted with intent. You may not even need the whole hour. But set the alarm and get to it so you stay productive the rest of the day.

Try it out. Let me know what you think.

Til next time… Stay sweet!

Ps. I’ll be dialling back to just one post per week starting next month. With intent, my writing will be of greater value and most importantly I will be writing because of want, not need.
