Dealing with Daily Distractions – Episode 2 – How to Deal with Distractions and Get More Done – Part 2
Failing to plan is planning to fail. In this episode, Clay Clark (business coach and former US Small Business Administration Entrepreneur of the Year) sits down with Dennis Meador to discuss the realities of dealing with daily distractions and getting more done. If you do not plan your day on a regular basis, you will end up in certain failure because you are wasting way too much time on things that are inefficient. You must become a productive business owner if you are going to achieve success in the race of business. Throughout the episode, Clay talks about healing to plan as if it were going on a trip without a GPS navigation system. When you have a map for where you are supposed to be going, and the most efficient route for traveling along that route, you can easily determine the correct stops along the way that make the most sense. A daily distraction can just the same be failing to efficiently plan out your day. You must use the time management systems that the most successful mentors use: a to do list, one calendar, and one email inbox. Becoming an efficient time manager is one of the skills that every mentor that we have interviewed has used religiously. Learn from Clay’s mistakes of failing to bring a GPS navigation system with him on a trip to Houston, and begin planning out your day and route for your business now.
