Eliminate distractions

The first step to creating a productive environment is to eliminate every kind of distraction.

Often we say we don’t have a healthy environment because we have too many distractions in our lives. Distractions are a part of life, that we must learn to deal with if we are going to produce the kind of life we say we want.

Distractions force us to make choices. We can choose to continue on the path of not realizing our dream or we can choose to create a systematic way to use it to help us create a life of harmony. Balance in life is learning how to live in harmony with distractions.

There will always be someone or something that will be after your attention to prevent you from going after what you want. Webster defines distraction as that which divides the attention, or prevents concentration.

When you lack focus it’s not likely that you are going to achieve the things you say you want. You must create a plan to deal with distraction. Our homes, our jobs or anything that distracts us requires we creatively find a way to change our environment and produce a healthy place for growth.
