Let's dive in now...
This world has become a mass of information with full of entertainment facilities and noise. The technology life has facilitated us but has also kept our focus on unnecessary things in life. We need to regain our focus when it comes to building long term career goals and relationships. But the distractions are intentionally or unintentionally responsible for our lack of focus and attention. We must be attentive in our minds and should continue to pursue our goals.
Distractions minimize our work efficiency and we have to suffer in form of work delays and task completion within deadlines. Focus can be achieved by prioritizing our work schedule and some changes in lifestyle. Some common distraction types are as follows:
Psychological Distraction occurs when the head is not just in the game. This results in prolong delays at work and deadline distractions.
People distractions can be due to the employees roaming around to tell you about something or some eruptions at work through phone ringing or lots of emails in inbox to read.
Process Distractions happen when there is a clutter environment for professionals working together, in this way you end up saying that you just can get enough time to get your work done.
To deal with such distractions what you need to follow is some simple habits:
Keep your phone away while at work. Your phone calls or unnecessary messages might distract you. You can check your important calls in the free time but let your task be finished first.
Schedule your work with your social media usage, checking emails all day, Facebook, Instagram, twitter notifications can be a biggest distraction at work. You can turn off the notifications during work and then check them afterwards. Make a habit of checking all this in free time once or twice a day only.
While working make sure to keep your work tab in full screen mode and minimize other tabs. Stick to your task, manage your time accordingly and then finish it in time. You can complete a few minutes project early and keep the files aside to get a less workload. Sometimes a visual stress can demotivate you and lessen your energies.
At home you can work either by turning off any unnecessary equipment’s like television or radio which can get you distracted from work. Make a to-do-list while working; it will help you a lot. This way if given new tasks or provided with opportunities, you an easily manage your routine.
Don’t get distracted by the opinions of people, some can give negative feedback or comments. Just be yourself and eliminate such distractions from your life by not bothering them. This world is filled with distractions, but a little attention and focus can give you successful results. Learn to manage your life with them.

To save you from my mistakes, I decided to write a blog that would actually give tips and strategies that worked. The second reason for this blog is to combat the irrelevant and inaccurate misinformation out there on how to become better focused, productive, and profitable.
