Dealing with Daily Distractions – Episode 2 – How to Deal with Distractions and Get More Done – Part 1
In this episode that talks about dealing with distractions, Clay Clark (Business coach and former US Small Business Administration Entrepreneur of the Year) discusses the importance of dealing with ridiculous commitments. If you ever have found your self obligated to something that you have agreed to doing that you honestly do not want to do, you may need to watch this episode. For many entrepreneurs, they are people pleasing individuals that sincerely want to help people. However, if you do not master the skill of being able to tell people know, you will always find yourself with less time then you need in order to grow your business. One of the most effective tools that Dr. Robert Zoellner has ever used is saying no to protect his time. In this training, Clay talks about the question of “who cares if I respond or do not respond to certain messages?” As a business owner, you must make the decisions daily about who you need to respond to, and who do you not need to respond to. Just because somebody sends you a message, does not mean that you need to respond. You are free to ignore and delete messages that do not concern a client that is paying you, or an employee that you are paying. Staying focused as one of the most important principles of time management. Some people think that staying focused means focusing on the one thing, when in reality it means to disregard the less important tasks that get put onto your plate daily.
