52 Mondays w/ Sherea VeJauan! Week #42: Eliminate Distractions!

Today is Sunday, October, 15th, and this is week #42 of our 52 Mondays challenge. Our goal is to break this year down – one Monday at a time.

By this stage of the year, you’ll probably find all kinds of distractions have crept into your life. People may have come along and made demands that take you in a different direction. Or you may have started doing other stuff which is unhelpful. The central challenge this week is to “Just say no!” to distractions and get back working on your priorities.

Evaluate your week from the perspective of your goal. Identify extra commitments which have crept in and cancel everything that’s getting in the way. Do a little housekeeping on your schedule. Dedicate at least one entire evening or one entire weekend to doing nothing but working on your goal.

“If someone challenges you, explain how important your goal is. If that’s not appropriate, just say “Something personal came up.” You really don’t owe them an explanation, but you do owe the time to yourself. So what will you do with that extra time? That’s up to you, but you’ll want to make it count. Give your goal a fighting chance this week by giving enough time to the process.” – Vic Johnson

I’m excited to hear about what you’ll do this week. Comment on the post below or send me an email at sherea@shereavejauan.com
