Boredom can set in.

A mild case of ADD contributes.

Distracting videos of cute puppies for the win!

That’s what’s holding me back.

I have such a love-hate relationship with technology. Of course I love it because my business is 95% online.

On the other hand–

OMG! I literally just got swallowed up in it while typing this!!! That’s semi-embarrassing, yet proving my point.

On the other hand, it’s such a distraction! So annoying.

I’d like to shift to the topic of why this could be holding you back, like it is for me.

Goals. Yep. That g-word that I love so much.

How can one reach goals with the distractions of our current lifestyle?

You can say that you won’t allow yourself to be on any longer then a set time, but does that really happen? I can’t speak for you, but I can say that it doesn’t work for me. Technology may not be what’s holding you back from pursuing your hopes and dreams. But I can tell you one thing. There is always something.

Think about it.

So now you may be asking me how does one possibly disallow these distractions or even attachments from holding them back?

This is clearly something I need work on, but I have been trying.

First, decide what’s holding you back. This is different for everyone. The distractions and the goals will not be the same, so please decide what it is for you and your goals.

Next, determine why you want to reach this goal. You’ve set this goal for a reason, right? Why do you want it so bad? A goal without a purpose is no goal at all. Do it- this is one of the most important things to remember.

Finally, schedule it. Make sure you set a reasonable deadline for your goal. Why? Because without one, it will not likely be met.

Once you do this, you can then schedule around your distraction.

I always use social media as the example since this is what I’m working on– Let’s say I have an important-to-me goal to reach by the end of the week; I decide how much time I need to spend working on that goal. Once that is decided, I can then take a look at social media and allow myself only certain times after I’ve worked on my task to get me towards my goal.

If you think that this sounds ridiculous or redundant, then I think it’s safe to say that your goal is of no value to you.

This is about your life. Make it work best for you, my friend.

Happiness, Audra
