As the world becomes more social and digitized, the spread of information becomes more easy. This is good. However, it also means that we’ll be bombarded with information, wanted or wanted at virtually every point in time.
Things will distract you – even important things. However, you need to, at every point in time, determine the things that are important to your goals for that time and focusing on them.
For example: although your side hustle business plan is important, it becomes a distraction when you are developing it at 11am in the office where you work – a time your employer has paid you for to meet the demands of your job description.
How do you deal with distraction? Don’t try to shut them out, you probably will lose that battle; just focus on your goals. Distraction is what you get when you take your eyes off the goal.
