Interesting article about 7 common distractions. Is this you? A few tips:

1. Anxiously checking your email - Try responding to emails first thing in the morning before your day starts, once at lunch, and then finally before you leave the office for the evening.

2. Going out to lunch daily – Fighting traffic, waiting for service and then making your way back to the office can suck up a lot of time from your busy day. Pack your lunch a few times a week.  Take a brisk walk at lunch time. Not only is it healthier, but you can also get little tasks completed while you eat.

3. Unnecessary online surfing – avoid the random surfing, as it can really suck a lot of valuable time from your day.

4. Non-business related social media - Facebook status updates, tweets and Instagram pictures- leave to the end of the day

5. Altering your day for unscheduled meetings -  Sometimes emergencies will come up and you have to adjust your schedule and take a meeting, but if it isn’t an emergency then don’t drop everything.

6. Disorganized office surroundings - If you have a team of employees pulling you in a million directions make sure you establish a time each day that you are off limits, allowing you to have a period of time that you know will be distraction-free.

7. Mobile phones and tablets - To really eliminate mobile distractions, turn it off or set it to airplane mode while you are working.
