You must be absolutely ruthless.
Hello and welcome back to Declutter Fast

Does it ever feel like time "gets away" from you?

It's the Time Derailers that can mess up our best intentions.

You make plans to spend your time on one project.

But then some kind of "Urgent Matter" comes along, or a pressing phone call comes along, and it completely derails your plans!

Next thing you know, several hours have gone by. Where's your energy and drive? Where's the TIME you set aside for your project at hand?

You feel like your plans got derailed!

It's a kind of "Murphy's Law": you finally settle in to work on that long overdue project and you're humming along...

... and somehow this dedicated state of mind is a MAGNET for some CRISIS (usually someone else's) that cannot be ignored.

Now that's frustrating!

There is only one solution for this - vigilance.

Yes, you've heard the word, but let's look at the actual definition:

"Vigilance: the action or state of keeping careful watch for possible danger or difficulties."

Yep. Close out ALL the interruptions when you are working on a special task.

You must be absolutely ruthless about the Time Derailers!

Don't check email. Do not even go on the internet.

Put your phone on silent - in another room entirely. Let the phone go to voice mail.

Cutting out all distractions is the ONLY way to make progress on your goal.

Be ruthless! This can save your sanity - and it can make you much more organized.

Then when you do put out those fires, you'll already be on top of things - instead of playing "catch up" all the time.

Every effort we make adds up. There is great hope to reach your goals!

P.S. From readers:

"This has caught me stashing my mail in a box, covering the ottoman, and even stacked up on the entry-way table...I am really ashamed! I'm going to work on this problem today until its all cleared up, (I can do this because I'm snowed in and can't get to work, hehehe). Thanks for this great idea!" - M.
