“You can always find a distraction if you’re looking for one.”

~ Tom Kite

I hope you enjoyed Tuesday’s humor quotes and that you’re enjoying this series of action ideas to help you “get up and get on with it”. 

Remember:  Learning to take action is critical to your long term success and happiness.  You are someone with incredible talents who will change your and others’ lives in so many incredible ways if you just get up and get on with it!  Here is the fourth of 8 action ideas to enable you to do just that.

Action item #4:  Distractions be gone!

Unless we are really turned on and passionate about a project, we are likely to seek out distractions that can serve as excuses for not taking action.  I do it, you do it, we all do it.  But if we allow it to continue, we’ll never get on to the actions that will get us what we truly desire.

Your assignment:  Eliminate the things you find yourself doing that distract you from taking action.  This will include things like TV, excessive computer time, books, etc. Eliminating distractions will create a bit of a vacuum – your mind will want to find something to do.  If those distractions are gone, you will be more inclined to take action on the things you want or need to do.
