122 – Battling Distraction

Welcome back to the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom! Today, we’re taking a deep dive into ways you can combat the wide array of distractions that come with working from home, or even in the office. Let’s take a look at some tips you can use today to manage your focus.

A big step you can take is utilizing a timer to keep track of how you spend the moments of your day. However, it’s easy to let time slip away. Before you know it, those 30 seconds it takes to reply to those texts have added up. Airplane mode is your friend! 

There are two sides of that coin, though. If you have a movie, soundtrack, or something that puts you in “work mode” don’t be afraid to put it on in the background. But be mindful that it doesn’t become a distraction.

As an entrepreneur, it’s really hard to stop working. Make sure that you’re scheduling your work hours and leaving it at that. Make sure that the hours that you’re working are when you’re most efficient–morning, night, early hours of the day–whatever works. No matter what, turning off your brain is just as important. Make sure that you’re planning in your breaks. 

As an entrepreneur, the work will always be there.

A simple step you can take to handle distractions is investing in a pair of good-quality headphones. That way, you’re not distracted by the dogs or the noise or the ring notification going off. None of those things are happening, because everything is canceled out. 

Finally, make sure you are blocking time out for your goals when distractions do happen so you can get back on track and pick up where you left off.
