Distractions are all around us.
At this very moment while we’re reading this blog post and thinking of what we’ll say in our comment, little ones may be pulling at our shirt tails,
begging asking for food or attention. The phone is ringing. Texts are coming in. Our email is full of unanswered messages. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and our blog are open in different tabs of our browser as we try to manage them all. Add to that, dinner time is near and we haven’t planned a thing.
Where, or where is the number for our favorite pizza joint?
I don’t know about you, but I have a lot on my plate.
I’m not complaining though, as most of what is on my plate is by choice.
In an effort to become more efficient, I try to prioritize what needs to be done each day. As great as that sounds, my plans often fail.
Distractions happen and what I had planned to do, either gets moved to my “to do” list for the next day, or doesn’t get done. (I guess it wasn’t that important after all.)
For my blogs I use plugins to streamline some of the processes, cut back on the time I spend on Facebook and unsubscribed to most automatic email notifications.
Those little tweaks help, but I feel I could do more.
I know many of you bloggers are super efficient. I admire that trait.
But, how do you do it?
How do you do it all – blog amidst life’s distractions?
Do you have a set schedule and/or do you use other tools which aid in your efficiency?
Care to share?
