To avoid distractions at work and in your personal life as much as possible, you need to identify all of them and treat them individually. From letting your colleagues know your available time windows to put your phone in Do Not Disturb mode for a focused period of time, there are plenty of little things to improve your work routines and eliminate interrupting factors.
If we are paying attention to our lives, we’ll recognize those defining moments. The challenge for so many of us is that we are so deep into daily distractions and ‘being busy, busy’ that we miss out on those moments and opportunities that – if jumped on – would get our careers and personal lives to a whole new level of greater achievements.
Your results are the product of either personal focus or personal distractions. The choice is yours.
Work is hard. Distractions are plentiful. And time is short.
By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination.
You can’t do big things if you’re distracted by small things.
We lead our lives so poorly because we arrive in the present always unprepared, incapable, and too distracted for everything.
We should not be distracted by anything; neither by dreams, whether evil or seemingly good, nor by the thought of anything, whether good nor bad, nor by distress or deceitful joy, nor by self-conceit or despair, nor by depression or elation, nor by a sense of abandonment or by illusory help and strength, nor by negligence or progress, nor by laziness or seeming zeal, nor by apparent dispassion or passionate attachment. Rather with humility, we should strive to maintain a state of stillness, free from all distractions, knowing that no one can do us harm unless we ourselves wish for it.
Don’t end the year 2023, having squandered your one-chance opportunity, full of regret because you pursued little distractions instead of big dreams.
We rarely find answers in the distractions. But oh what possibilities live within the quiet of solitude.
Disconnect from everything long enough to see if it feeds your soul or is a distraction. What’s deeply connected will always remain. One way to boost our willpower and focus is to manage our distractions instead of letting them manage us. Give no permission to no one to manage your time in 2023. Keep your mind off the things you don’t want by keeping it on the things you do want.
Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.
Believe in yourself, don’t let no man define your future, work hard at your trade as if no man exists to help you and focus should be your lens against distractions.
Most people in the world are just distracted and work only on the surface but if you will be deep enough to concentrate and study or rehearse anything, the world will bow in honor of you.
Keep making a difference out there! Don’t let the noise around you distract you from listening to the voice within you. To choose art means to turn one’s back on the world, or at least on certain of its distractions.
Certain things catch your eye but pursue only those that capture the heart.
Manifestation blossoms when we turn down or tune out doubtful noise.
Never pay attention to the distractions in life. Focus on possibilities. Instead of focusing on how much you can accomplish, focus on how much you can absolutely love what you’re doing.
One look at an email can rob you of 15 minutes of focus. One call on your cell phone, one tweet, one instant message can destroy your schedule, forcing you to move meetings, or blow off really important things.
Don’t let mediocrity distract you from greatness.
Concentrate all your thoughts on the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to focus. Less distraction, more focus. Less past, more future. Less toxicity, more positivity.
Mark 4:19 but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is unusual for human beings. But God is faithful, and he will not allow you to be tempted beyond your strength. Instead, along with the temptation, he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to endure it.
Proverbs 4:25 Look straight ahead and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
Luke 10:38-42 As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.” But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it and will not be taken away from her.”
Mark 6:31 Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat.”
Ephesians 5:15-16 So, then, be careful how you live. Do not be unwise but wise, making the best use of your time because the times are evil.”
Galatians 1:10 “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
You are fully blessed in the year 2023 in Jesus’ name!
