Summer Distractions

When the idea struck me for this post, it was loaded with the intention of writing about strategies for dealing with distractions. And now 5 days have gone by in which I’ve gotten nearly ZERO writing done, proving beyond a doubt that I don’t have any effective strategies for beating distractions.

Then this morning on Robert D’s blog, I listened to a video interview with Crystal Paine of moneysavingmom.com on getting more done. And there was that word again: routine. Remember, from Tuesday’s blog post here? It clicked. The two are related. If I have routines in place, I won’t get sidetracked so easily by distractions.

Okay, God, I’m listening now. Minimize distractions, establish routines, and make every blessed minute count.
