As always, a quick hello to all of my Keep the Faith listeners, thanks for being a part of this extended community of contagious encouragement.
I am proud to be an educator and consultant for Beautycounter, a B-Corp company on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. The lack of regulation in the personal care and cosmetic industry is astounding and it is harming our health in very serious ways. We need more voices to join up on our mission. If you want to put your passion to purpose while being generously compensated, then I would love to start a conversation with you about what it means to be involved in the #saferbeauty tribe that is Beautycounter. Join the movement of #betterbeauty and message me via email to make your voice really resonate for a cause. Shop for your own Beautycounter collection at www.beautycounter.com/trishblackwell
HOW TO FOCUS IN THE FACE OF DISTRACTION
To overcome distraction (which we will dive into right after this) you must identify what distraction is in your life and how it side rails you. As with anything, it’s impossible to address something that you don’t have a strong grasp on or mastery of in your own awareness.
My personal distractions I identified:
Lack of urgency / procrastination
Absence of belief
Over fatigue and inability to focus
OVERCOMING DISTRACTION / HOW TO MINIMIZE IT IN YOUR LIFE
- Know what matters to you
- Know the obstacles that lie ahead
- Know how to plan ahead
- Know your limits
- Know how to ask for help
DISTRACTION IS SOMETHING YOU CAN CONTROL
Refuse to buy into being busy.
Reduce the distractions you allow into your life
Stop trying to multi-task.
Focus on doing what you can do, well, and ask for help for the rest
