In this digital era, distractions can seem impossible to avoid. Just figuring out how to stay focused on your goals and ambitions can feel as difficult as actually achieving them.
These days, constant distractions can lead to a massive loss in productivity.
Statistics show that employees, on average, waste 28% of their time dealing with and trying to recover from unnecessary interruptions.
And that’s at work, where you’re paid to be productive, and where some of us are monitored too much or too closely for comfort.
So, one can only imagine how much time is lost or wasted when we are left to our own devices.
A World of Distractions
Speaking of devices, how many times have you grabbed your cell phone at the very moment you hear a notification, wasting precious time scrolling through social media when you should be using that time working on your goals?
I can bet a lot.
