The Danger of Distraction

Here’s a direct quote from one of my favorite business books, The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Getting Your Shit Together, Volume 2 by John Carlton. 

For most entrepreneurs, just the act of scheduling a SINGLE hour of dedicated writing time…and a SINGLE hour of concentrated web research….and a SINGLE hour of managing goals…
…will revolutionize your entire life. 

For three lousy hours each day, don’t mingle your input.

When you write, that’s all you do.

When you business surf, that’s all you do.

When you think big thoughts, that’s all you do. 

You will stun your brain with what you can get done, minus distractions. 

…Just Remember this: You lose this small battle (being distracted all the time) and you aren’t going much of anywhere in your life.

The paths that matter are long dangerous and fun. But you gotta pay attention.

Distraction is a parking lot on that path. 

Holy Smokes. 

That hit me. HARD. 

Did it hit you?

Now picture the personal trainer that constantly checks their phone while they’re training a client.

Don’t you picture that and want to vomit?

Doesn’t that just offend the hell out of you?

Doesn’t that disrespect the client, the gym, the industry, the art of coaching?

As a business owners, we’re doing the same thing when we get distracted by every little beep, ding, vibration or interruption.

Show the work you are doing the respect it deserves and be 100% INTO it…whatever that may be…

Writing an email?
Talking to a client?
Working with a team member?
Cleaning the gym?

Whatever you’re doing…be there…nowhere else.

As Carlton says you’ll be shocked with how much MORE  work you get done…not to mention better work.
