Secret to Success: Schedule Time For Distractions

While it’s critical to analyze how you’re spending your time and to set healthy boundaries at work and at home, you also need to let loose and have some fun!

Scheduling time for distractions is definitely one of my favorite productivity tips.

If all you do is work, work, work, your energy will eventually be sapped and you’ll find yourself burning out.

Part of managing your time better so that you can be more productive is to actually schedule time for distractions.

This seems a bit counter-productive, doesn’t it?

But really, blocking time out for distractions is a smart productivity tactic.

Distraction scheduling allows you to not only get your work done but also to enjoy the pleasures of blissful nothingness. The best of both worlds!

Time blocking is a favorite time management method of many highly productive people and you can apply it in your quest to not only do your work but also to allow yourself to be distracted.

Distractions are a part of life whether we welcome them or not. Sometimes we can’t control them, but other times we can.

Take the opportunity to maximize your productivity by scheduling distraction time as a way to manage what you can control.

Instead of succumbing to distractions, schedule them!

See you next week for more tools on how to be more productive!

Until Next Time,
