How Avoid Being Distracted Whilst Working on a Task
Your mind is going to put a million things in front of you. It’s your job to control it.
Copy my simple system to create book summaries so you can remember what you read months, even years, after reading.
We’ve all been guilty of working hard on something and then remembering something else and just doing that instead.
And then it takes a while to get back to what we were doing (if we go back at all).
I‘ve been there.
It‘s very frustrating.
Here’s a simple trick to avoid those distractions:
When you think of something that you want to do whilst in the middle of doing something, write it down.
Your mind is going to put a million things in front of you that you should do aside from the thing that you should be doing.
Instead of going ahead and acting on the stuff that your brain is telling you to do, have a list - a notebook next to you or the notes app on your phone - and dump your random thoughts in there as you are doing your task.
That way you won‘t be task-switching a lot and will still keep everything you need to remember later down.
