Hello, I’m Brian Tracy.
Today I wanna talk to you about some of today’s top distractions
and how you can avoid them.

One thing for sure is that we live in a world
with no shortage of distractions.
From technology that connects us to everything and everyone
to the endless sources of entertainment all around us,
modern life is like landmine, full of distractions,
capable of derailing your progress
everyday and throughout each day.
If you want to ensure both your personal and your professional success though,
it’s important to avoid these distractions as best as possible.
If you’re looking for a way to avoid distractions
and be more productive each day,
here are a few great tips to consider.
First, plan your day the night before.
There’s something to be said for the value of having a schedule in place.
When you plan out each day the night before,
you will begin to see distractions more for what they are
something that is going to halt your progress
and keep you from sticking to the schedule that you planned out originally.
Each afternoon before you call it a day,
take the time to plan out the things you want to accomplish the next day,
and the schedule you want to stick to,
perhaps writing them down in a planner
or in a document on your computer.
These can be work-related tasks that you want to get done
as well as breaks and time for relaxation that you want to schedule in.
If you’re able to plan out your day beforehand though,
you’ll be much more likely to stick to that plan
and avoid distractions that could derail it.
Second, go offline.
The internet and all that it provides access to
is by far the number one distraction of modern times.
While many people work online and are
therefore unable to avoid the internet while they work.
Going offline while you go about completing your daily tasks,
it’s a great way to avoid many distractions if you’re able to do so.
At the very least, set your smartphone aside while you work
and only check it occasionally during your breaks maybe once an hour.
A phone buzzing with notifications
is going to be a much bigger distraction
than a computer that is connected to the Internet
and turn off, except when you want to check it.
Also, in the same way that going offline can
make you more productive while you work,
going offline during your time off
can be incredibly beneficial as well.
Take some time to disconnect from the internet
and truly enjoy the world and people around you.
If you do, you’ll be likely find your time off to be more refreshing and enjoyable.
Next, start earlier in the morning.
The early morning hours are some of the most
valuable hours of the entire day.
Not only are you going to be much more motivated and determined
when you first start the day,
distractions tend to typically pile up more and more as the day goes by.
Try tackling the projects that require
the most focus out of you in the early hours of the morning.
If you’re able to wake up and get started in the calm,
peaceful hours of early dawn before most people have started their day,
and before most distracting things have begun, even better.
The more you make use of the distraction free hours of the early morning,
the more productive you will be all day long.
Finally, declutter your workspace.
Clutter and distractions go hand-in-hand.
Every piece of clutter in your space is an individual source of distraction.
And taken as a whole,
clutter can be even more distracting than just its individual bars.
It’s no doubt hard to stay focused and concentrate
when you’re surrounded by mess and disorganization.
Clutter also forces you to take time to search for the things you need,
which in turn creates a window for you to be sidetracked
from what you need to be focusing on right now.
Take the time to declutter your space and create both a work and living space
that is organized and clutter free.
When you’re done,
you’ll likely be having an environment that lends itself far better to focus
and concentration than it did before.
Before we wrap up,
I’d like to leave you with a thought to share with your friends and followers.
“There are no shortcuts.”
“早行动 勤努力 持之以恒”
“To be a big success, start a little earlier, work a little harder,”
“and stay a little later.”
Now, I’d love to hear from you.
So my question today is this
“what is distracting you from the success that is possible for you?”
