I Think I’ve Lost My Focus

I have been busy working on the appearance of my blog this week. After struggling through a couple of glitches, and getting great help from a mentor – that part is finished. I’m hoping the colors are not too much (I love lots of color)!

I probably could have had this completed a little earlier, however I got sidetracked reading emails yesterday. The Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. as well as Black Friday today caused my inbox to be full of offerings of free gifts as well as special sales on internet marketing products. Whew, it is so easy to lose focus!

Lack of focus can be a big problem in keeping internet marketers from taking the right action. Email, facebook, youtube etc. are huge distractions. It is so easy to go to post something in regard to our business on a forum or facebook etc., or to look up something we need to check on youtube and before we know it (after viewing ten videos or twenty forum posts that we didn’t need to) an hour or more has gone by!

Hopefully the following little tips that have helped me will be helpful to you as well. 1) Plan in the evening exactly what you want to accomplish tomorrow in order to move your business ahead. Try to be realistic in regard to the amount of time that you have available to do this. 2) Plan to work on the highest priorities first. If there is something that you find unpleasant, plan to do that next. 3) Set a timer that day for no longer than one hour. Work in the order that you have planned. Determine in your mind that you will focus only on these tasks. Tell yourself that it is only until the timer buzzer goes off. Take a break. 4)Space this out depending on how much time you have to work on your business.

On your mark, get set, go!
