Optimizing Your Life: Avoiding Distractions #1

We all live crazy lives. We have emails to read, round the clock meetings at Red Lobster, some of us even to put food in a child of animal’s mouth on a regular basis. With that much stuff going on, how can we ever find time to focus on what really matters? So you want to read a Tom Clancy book, maybe you want to scrapbook pictures of your child or animal, whatever. You need to focus. You need to be distraction free. My simple tips on avoiding distraction will make you a well oiled machine, not really, you are not a machine, you are human, and nobody will want to touch you if you’re oily. But get my metaphor bro. Here we go.

-The first step towards becoming distraction free is reading about avoiding distractions. That’s why you’re here, that’s why I am writing, that’s why you should probably buy my e-book and subscribe to my RSS feed. A great place to find stuff on avoiding distraction is the internet. The internet has everything you’d ever want on it, except a few out-of-print jazz albums I have been unable to locate. You want to start with blogs, blogs are cool. Just reading this blog might get you started, but there are like 2,000 other blogs that focus on making your life more focused, clutter free, and productive. I read at least 34 posts on optimizing my workflow a day. My workflow is so fucking optimized you have no idea. So take an hour or so to research some other blogs on avoiding distraction, there’s an enormous amount of minimalist literature out there in the tubes. If you want to become a minimalist, you need to read all of it. If you’re not feeling distraction free after an hour of reading blogs, read for another hour, and so on until you feel truly distraction free. Whatever you do, do not google the following terms in between reading blogs: kittens, kittens kissing, cute kittens, puppies hugging, weird girls, girls with kittens, etc…

Come back tomorrow to learn the next step in avoiding distraction. Don’t forget to follow me on twitter @woejozney. I post life-hacking tips all day long, so make sure and check your feed every 15 minutes. You could miss out on the tip that will truly optimize your life.
