Today’s blog is all about the things that grab your attention.¬†Distractions come to confuse you, trip you up or knock you off your game. Some distractions are good. Things like a new job, boyfriend or even a new car can steal your attention away from other things. How do you focus on your dreams in a time of chaos, drastic life changes and new fun things that you’ve been hoping for?

Big celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Chef Emeril Lagasse, and NBC News Anchor Lester Holt live life in the fast lane with multiple projects, appearances, family and cameras chasing and a host of social media accounts overflowing with fans.

How do the world’s most successful people keep laser focus, manage distractions and keep on living their dreams? They prioritize. Making time, staying organized and prioritizing the things that are most important will keep you from falling apart, even when life throws good and bad distractions at you. Here’s four ways to deal with distractions.

1. Stick To A Schedule – Creating a powerful schedule and sticking to it is one of the best tools for dealing with distractions. A tight schedule will stop minor distractions from coming in and invading your life. You have all the power. Use it to keep you focused.

2. Include Major Life Events In Your Schedule – Did you start a new business? Have a baby or a new relationship? Add those things in your schedule and multitask. Eat lunch with your significant other, create office hours for your business and don;t forget to schedule in fun. Yes, adding fun hours to your schedule can give you time to relax and refresh. When something traumatic happens, clear your schedule and take time off to deal with tragedy like death or a divorce.

3. Just Say No – You can’t be everything to everybody. You can’t take every phone call, or answer every text every single time you get one. Let people know when you can;t be available. Make time for your friends and be a stickler for the rules. It’s OK to bend the rules, but constantly breaking them and allowing distractions to ruin your life is unacceptable.

4. Plan a Vacation, Getaway and Time For Family – You can’t work all day every day. Make sure that you plan a trip, vacation and time or your family. Life is meant to be enjoyed, you might as well live it. In the end, it will make you better at work and give you the energy you need to live your dreams.

Life is tough, but it gets easier when you manage distractions. You can live your dreams, live a good life and enjoy it when you keep laser focus. Follow me on social media foe the latest fashion, technology and pop culture news on Twitter @memymonicalink and Instagram at @Monicanyc13
