Sometimes it’s important to turn off all of the “noise” that gets in our way, when we’re trying to do something.
- Turn off the TV.
- Turn off the radio.
- Turn off the RSS Reader.
- Turn off the phone.
- Turn off the people around you if you can (close the door to your office, or go hide upstairs or something)
I call this time my “head’s down” time. Like “Hey, my head is down in my work over here. Leave me alone!”
I just spent the last four hours doing work that probably would have taken me 8 hours, if I’d done it in my normal reactionary, distractable nature. Instead I put my head down, and got a lot done.
Figure out how to put your head down, and get more done in less time.
