Distractions

Does everything you are doing build to the one thing you want to do?  If it doesn’t, then start to eliminate the things that don’t fit…with the exception of people.  Don’t eliminate people, just cut back to time you spend with them.

Do the people in your life cheer you on toward your goal?  If not, then find people who do.  These are not people who tell you exactly what you want to hear.  They need to be people who tell you the truth and help you get where you are going.

Distractions are not just coming from people, but that is usually the source of your 200 daily emails, your 200 daily text messages, and the 2 hours a day you spend on facebook.  Does all this get you toward your singular goal?  If not then you are wasting time.  You are the only one who can control your distractions.

It is not information overload; it is filter failure.  You have to learn the art of filtering out the crap or it will overwhelm you.  And you will still be sitting home waiting for something to happen.
