The work day has just begun and you’re full of good intentions to write that proposal you’ve been putting on the back burner for past three weeks. Suddenly Skype pings and it’s a client asking if you’ve seen a new and interesting article. You click the link, read the article, and notice another article that looks interesting. This article prompts you to decide to spontaneously revamp your Facebook cover photo, which in turn prompts you respond to a few Likes and Comments. Before you know it, half the day is shot and you still haven’t written that proposal.
Now there are some of us who might consider all of this “multitasking;” however moving from task to task and never completing anything is far from productive. Jumping from task to task may seem like a good idea, but the end result typically results in the person finding themselves spread too thin and, consequently, having do deal with a ton of open projects. The lure of “shiny objects” is all around, and savvy business people know the key to staying on task is not losing focus on the project at hand. Utilizing list-making apps or programs like FocusBooster andStayFocused (a Google Chrome extension) will help take the steps needed to get the job done with minimal distractions.
