Distractions
« on: June 24, 2016, 04:57:04 PM »
How do you keep from getting distracted while working at home?  For me some the of the biggest distractions are on the internet because some of the work is so boring.  I find myself clicking through things trying to find something interesting to watch and listen to that I waste precious minutes that should be spent on working. I've had to just stick to my iTunes to keep from wasting time.  What about you?

I like to listen to music as a way to avoid getting too distracted too. I use Spotify personally, but iTunes probably works just as well. Being able to plug in my music makes me able to earn a lot more quickly as I don't end up getting so distracted.

I also tend to work more throughout the night so that I'm able to earn when the house is quieter and people aren't around to keep distracting me.

The best time for me to work from home is in the morning after my husband leave the house to work. At 5 am he is travelling already going to work. I will just do some household chores and at 6 am or 7 am in the morning I will start my online work already up to 10 am. This is my new working time when the house is quiet and my mind is still fresh in the and I can concentrate well in my work. Then I will work again 1 pm to 3 pm  in the afternoon and 8 pm to 10 pm at night before going to sleep. As much as possible I try to follow this new time schedule because it is very convenient to me to be working during these hours.

My biggest distraction is the heat right now. To get relief it is easy for me to just laydown with the fans on and fall asleep. And now that I am working in the garden outside I seem to be tired more easily on a day I may have to rest. I sometimes get distracted if there is a lot to do as well around the house. I am trying to get chores done on time but it is hard sometimes.

I set aside so much time to do any online tasks and then stop to do other things. You do need balance, but I still get distracted from time to time. That's one issue, but because there is no deadline or urgency it's okay as long as you get one you need to get done sorted.

I think distractions aren't altogether bad, because it's the body and mind that crave it. I often surf a bit and read some stories online and then find I have been doing it for an hour! At least I gleaned some information or was amused in that time.

I try to limit distractions from boredom by mixing up my tasks. For instance, I will do some forum posting for a few minutes, and then I'll work on some article research. When I get bored of the research, I might go onto my Etsy shop and do some marketing or listing new items. And so on ... It helps me to break the day into different tasks.

But another way is to try to set yourself a goal for how much you want to make that day. It gets my adrenaline flowing, to be honest, and I work-work-work off the energy. :)

I find that I give myself "times" to break. Otherwise, I try to stay focused. What distracts me the most is well meaning family members who barge in like I am not doing something important. Then I end up restarting the task I am working on over and likely have wasted about 5 minutes doing what I just did. :(

If I feel bored I get myself some distractions right away. Well, that is me. If I stay too focused I feel bored and lacking in momentum to finish what I set out to do. For me it is no longer about managing my distractions. It is about taking advantage of them to bring in some fresh ideas or relief from a boring routine.

There are many distractions when someone is working online lack of discipline being one of them. There is also the issue of friends and acquaintances as well as other day time targets to meet. In my case, I concentrate on my daytime job and take advantage of breaks and lunch hour sessions to catch up on online activity. The rest, I push back to the evening and night hours when I am indoors and there are less distractions.
