Distracted With Dedication
Distracted With Dedication
I am talented and have good grasping power, but I lack dedication and I get distracted very easily. My mind gets distracted very easily by mobile, computer and internet. What should I do? How can I stop procrastinating and getting easily distracted?
If these questions are bothering you, please read on…
The Office work is plagued by incoming emails, reminders, scheduled meetings, unscheduled meetings, random chitchat, and other annoyances that make concentration more difficult.
It is this environment wherein we rack our brains at work, struggling to come up with anything that resembles like a one gr8 idea.
Just then…a charming personality or a pleasant voice grabs your attention and you feel like you just had a cool Mentos.
You get further invited to take a walk and you discover that this trip to the water cooler had never been healthier until now.
Another example…a housewife/ husband is too busy in his/her daily chores and suddenly there is a comedy serial or a mind-tickling quiz contest on TV. An immediate change is seen their approach towards completion of the tasks.
Today, children and adults are bombarded with what the “perfect guy” or “perfect girl” is supposed to look like. Get SERIOUS! is the buzzword.
That’s my point. Distractions aren’t always the curse to productivity we generally see them as. They also add a dash of randomness, and they also relieve pain — both of which are good news for the millions of professionals working from home / office who are overworked .
Each distractive opportunity may be a chance to infuse someone else’s day with dedication.Take the initiative to explore mutual interests and find common ground.
The next time you find anyone dedicating him/her towards distracting you, be assured that it is being done for sincere and genuine reasons. Trust is just starting to be built at this time and can be very fragile.
Supporting an environment that welcomes differences in abilities, individual attributes and personalities allows people to contribute their best every day. If we choose with purpose to see these moments not as distractions from our work, but as the work, then we can begin to lead more meaningfully in each and every moment.
Having said that…please be focused with Dedication and DO NOT get distracted what so ever while driving & walking as the human brain has evolved to only be able to adequately focus attention on one task at a time.
So when you’re texting or talking on the phone while trying to walk, you cannot give your full attention to both tasks. Carry a flashlight, wear a headlamp, and wear reflective clothing for added visibility.
