Lately, it's been so hard to stay on task. Indie starts soon (!!!!!), my husband will be coming home soon (!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and my upcoming business is blooming (!!!!!). Lots of excitement! Just one more exclamation mark!
Staying on task has been uber tough. But, here are some of my tips.
Make a list. Once I clear out my head, it's easier to focus on just one task at a time. I usually am distracted with thoughts of other things I should be doing. To battle this, I clear out my head. It's so nice to see the check mark beside what you've accomplished.
Clean up your space. Once I can see what I'm doing, it seems so much easier to nail out a project. I also prefer to have my house picked up (as best as possible). I can be a little compulsive about neatness, but it's so nice. Also, I light a candle in my work area. Did you know that citrus smells bring you energy? Just what I need!
Turn on the Mozart! My mom told me to do it. He'll help you focus and get you going. I don't know why it works, but I'm convinced it works.
A little pep talk never hurt. I read somewhere that when you envision yourself doing a task, it is easier for your brain to follow along and accomplish. Awesome.
Hope this helps someone else stay on track. I sure did need it!!
