Simple Tip to Keep Distractions at a Minimum

We are all guilty of getting distracted during our work hours. However, as friends, moms, & wives, our time is precious! Here’s a simple tip from our Executive Director Somer Phoebus on how she stays laser focused during work hours so she can maximize the time she spends with her family.

Information overload is one of the top reasons we get distracted and sidetracked when trying to be productive. Don’t let utility bills from 5 years ago take over your workspace storage areas any longer!

At the beginning of each month, go through your file cabinets, desk drawers, receipts, purse, laptop bag, and wherever else you keep hard copies of items and get rid of the things you do not need. (I use a 12 month file system which I teach in the swHw Productivity Academy.) Take time to do this on your devices – old emails, photos, videos, voicemails, etc. need to be purged

monthly for 2 reasons:
1. You will save storage on your devices, and
2. You will be able to find what you need SO much easier in the event you have to go searching for something.

    Excellent tips!! I remember the days when my wallet would get so full with receipts that I couldn’t close it all of the way. Clearly, I got confused and thought my purse was a filing cabinet. Overall, I’m super organized! I think it started back in the day when my momma used to have me organize my Barbie dolls and toys. She taught me a lot as I grew up. The 12-month filing system Sommer teaches sounds interesting!!

    My biggest challenge is that I have been known to be a “digital horder.” It may be tucked away neatly in folders and subfolders (and more subfolders) on my computer, yet it’s totally unnecessary to keep all of it. I’ve been growing in this area as well, learning to have fun clicking the delete button. I love the noise Mac computers make when you put something into the trash! Music to my ears!
