Distractions are commonplace.
There are always things to do and matters to care for.
The trick is appropriating them to their proper place and proportion in our lives.
In order to accomplish work that takes extra focus and time it helps to use what I call planned neglect.
While the small everyday tasks might be screaming out at you to deal with them immediately, you have full power to declare, “No, be silent now. I’m working on this right at the moment. You will have your turn but it is not now.”
Putting distractions in their place frees you to do the work that will leave a difference.
