I don’t know about you, but my day often gets WAY off track the moment I turn my computer on. For some reason, it’s way more fun to surf Pinterest, check out Facebook, and/or check my email rather than get what needs to be done, done! Can you relate? If so, check out how I make myself stay on track.
Staying on Track!
1. Make a “to-do” list of the items that you definitely need to get done. I have an ongoing list, but I scan mine every night and every morning to figure out what I need to make sure I do first, second, and so on.
2. Stay away from social media until you are finished with your list. Or, I like to reward myself with about ten minutes of Pinterest from time to time throughout the day. If you choose to do this, though, remember it is easy to let time get away from you so set a timer!! 🙂
3. Save email until your most appropriate time. But, here again, email can be a time-sucker so, only answer the most important messages first, then go back to peruse the coupons or funny emails later.
I know how easy it is to get sidetracked, but if you set your mind to it you will get WAY more done that you thought possible. Then your reward it Pinterest and Facebook or whatever your weakness is!
Do you have any suggestions on how to stay on track? Please share!
