No matter where you work – in an office, a cubicle, or at home – you’re faced with interruptions and distractions. Phones ringing, interesting conversations, background noise, people stopping by, and so on.
When you find you’re facing too many tasks and not enough day, try this:
Sometimes that’s all it takes. Find a place where you can focus on what you need to accomplish. Depending on the task at hand, it may be your favorite coffee shop, the library, a conference room, a park, or a bookstore. You can probably think of even more!
By changing your environment, you activate your brain. Motion creates momentum. Which leads to an aside.
If you can’t get away, take a short walk. Get your mind off your work for just a few minutes. Breathe. Take in the beauty around you. Relax. You’ll find that when you get back to work, you’re refreshed. You’ll be more inspired. You’ll feel better. You’ll get more done.
Keep your purpose in mind. You may need to be alone. If that’s the case, and this may sound bad, but there’s a good reason for it –
Don’t go to your regular haunts.
Try to avoid places where you’ll be known. You want to be anonymous. Otherwise, you might find yourself in a conversation that works counter to your purpose – to slam out some work.
So the next time you find yourself struggling to get everything done, change your scenery for a change!
