Distraction… it’s like Crack.

Category : Getting Started

Day 1: FHWW Diary

I did get something new accomplished today: got this blog started. However, pulling myself away from the realities of the business work week is proving tough.

I set myself a goal for today: spend only FOUR hours on the business today, and spend the other four working to expand the new aspects of my businesses.

Yet, there it is. Email. Ping. I have to respond. It’s urgent. Now I’m distracted.
Someone’s skyping me. Maybe I should just shut it off. But crap, there’s a fire. I have to put it out. Damn.

And then there’s the lure of inefficiency. Why be efficient when I can just check my del.icio.us book marks, make a call, do an errand.

Shit. My existing “inefficient” work week is like Crack. It’s proving a hard habit to kick.

What I need is some serious cold turkey medicine. Give me the withdrawal fever. I’m ready. I just need to kick this inefficiency habit.
