My New Business Vlog's Out: "How To Not Get Distracted When Working From Home"

in dtube •  3 months ago  (edited)


You can't do big things if you're distracted by small things.

Getting distracted is actually one of the trickiest traps one can step in when working from home. That's at least one of my biggest takeaways as a young entrepreneur.

A thousand things want to call your attention, while you desperately try to focus on one.

My strategy: Be radical!

Switch off those phones, uninstall those apps, don't text back, ignore phone calls. There is only one way to get your stuff done: you need to get your stuff done.

I hope you enjoyed my today's little video advice.

Have a great week! And: Be focused.

Nice reminder!
I have worked from home for the last 12 years, and the last 5 years we have had 2 kids growing up!
It can be s madhouse here.
I edit all the videos I shoot for clients from my desk, and keep my camera gear stored away when not in use.

It can be difficult sometimes but when big chunks of work needs doing, me and my wife find arrangements for a quiet(er) house.

Having the phone/internet off during work hours is a worthy tip too!

Hey Ash, thanks for stopping by! :)
I grew up with two little brothers and can definitely relate. It was always hard to study when they were around :-) However, I also can't work in a totally silent ambient - that kinda makes me nervous. So I usually put on some music in the office.

You are so right!

:-) Ich wünschte, ich würde meine eigenen Ratschläge immer zu 100% beherzigen, hehe

Ach, wem sagst Du das :-)

I needed this .... Thanks!!

Hehe, you're welcome!
Btw nice combination of interests: Health | Tech | Life :-) (followed)

Great video. Yes, sometime's I also love to keep my phone away from me and use silent mode. That time I just want to be myself. Thank you so much for constantly adding value to @dtube platform .

Yeah, it's important to be oneself, focus and not get distracted sometimes.
However, sometimes we just need to do exactly this: get distracted and carried away. There's room and time for everything I'd say :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

You’re so pretty and it’s lovely learning pretty stuffs from you.

Aaaaw, you just put a huge smile on my face, hehe :-)
Thanks for the flowers!!

It's too windy right now to surf - I could do windsurf if I had time for it. But this month's quite busy, so I just surf in my daydreams - yet these can be quite intense at times :-)

Thanks for being around, hope you're having a great day!

Thanks for the reply and the clarification, I noticed the strong wind at background of your video. It’s really windy there.

That’s also what I do when I work from home. Close the door. Turn off / silent mode everything not work related.

Nothing new. 100% true.
