Hey Coach Joe here and today we’re talking the distracted leader.
Every day we are inundated with distractions. These distractions pull us away from our concentration.
You might not even realize the energy required as you move in and out of the clutter of distraction.
If you’re like many people, you might think this is a positive thing. Because it means you are busy, and by being busy you’re making meaningful contributions.
While this might be true, it is in spite of the distractions rather than because of it.
🔥5 practical applications for removing the distractions.
👉🏻1. Plan your week with your (GIA) greatest impact activity.
👉🏻2. Create “thinking space” Juliet Funt, CEO of WhiteSpace calls this “the strategic pause in between the busyness.”
👉🏻3. Calm your mind. Distractions disrupt your strategic thinking.
👉🏻4. Prioritize the distractions. Some distractions are manipulating your productivity. Stay clear of the mindless distractions.
👉🏻5. Stop trying to multitask. It causes us to completely shift our thinking and takes a while to get back to your GIA.
Embrace the grind. Enjoy the journey. Keep listening.
