  1. Would love to be married or in a long-term relationship by the end of 2012 …..

  2. My current distractions are TV, e-mail, and just wasting time if I am not intentionally focused on what I want to accomplish.

  3. 1) FB
    2) Email
    3) TV

    I love this idea of doing 30-60 min blitzes with none of the above distractions. I’m going to plan in a few blitzes this week 🙂

  4. Phone calls can be distracting. I allow calls to go to voicemail intentionally at times to complete a task. Isn’t that what voicemail is for? There’s no law that says I have to available 24/7 for every single phone call. Many times people do not even leave a message and I am able to finish my task without numerous interruptions. That’s just my take on how I handle that particular time issue.

  5. Great video! My main distractions are wanting to have perfect conditions to start a project, email/FB, and phone calls. Doing much better with all of them but still have a way to go! Excited to track my time this week and see where the big holes are so I can be on alert for them!

  6. Kelly, Wow. This was great! Scheduling time is at the top of my to-do list and I haven’t seemed to make the time for it! Ha! I am distracted by:

    housework
    facebook
    phone calls

    Working from home has it’s own distractions. I even become distracted by the thought of the numerous projects I am not getting to. I am blessed to be working from home, raising kids, and doing what I love! In addition to working as an artist, I also publish an online women’s magazine with my best friend. Our mission is to INSPIRE and we achieve our mission. That feels wonderful! However, I am often distracted by my work in this area that I don’t schedule time for me or to pursue my art. This video came at the perfect moment for me. I am so happy to have found a place where I can be mentored! Thank you! And… bless you!

  7. Thank you for encouraging me to take a good look at where my time is spent…..and I can tell you the results before I even begin…..facebook has taken over my life! I will be taking steps to put together a reasonable schedule where I can put the things I value at the top, instead of in the “whenever” spot. Thanks!!!

  8. My 3 distractions are 1. Me 2. Myself and 3. I. I need to get out of my way and keep myself focused on what really matters. I plan on using my alarm on my cell phone to keep me on track. When I sit down to check emails, I will set my alarm to go off in 30 min, When it does, I will move on to the next project of the day. I always have my phone on me so I might as well put it to work 🙂

    Just ordered my book today. Cannot wait to get it!! 🙂

  9. I love the idea of the 60-90 minute blitz! This is perfect for me. I get so distracted & before I know it, my day is gone. I look forward to implementing this idea.

  10. WOOHOO!! You go Kelly! So proud of you! Any clients working with you should pay close attention as I know first hand how you pay careful attention to these details in your own life. You’re an amazing leader!

    I love the idea of the 60-90 minute blitz! I already have some ideas for what I can work on this week!

  12. Pat Bodley says:

    Television, TV, Television, TV, Television, TV, Television . . . Get the picture? Television is such a distraction for me that when I was typing this I had to go back and correct a lower case v in TV! 🙂

  13. My biggest distraction in worry. I want to have everything figured out sometimes before it happens.
    I start a list at the beginning of the week what I want to accomplish but most of the time some of the same things get added to the next weeks list. I look forward to working on this weeks challenge.

  14. My main distraction in the office is e-mails that come in and interrupt projects. If I’m working from home my cats like to hop on my lap or sit on my book or stand on the computer keyboard. (They are not very good typists!) Facebook is a distraction if I’m sitting in front of a computer, but if I don’t get on facebook, then it’s not a problem. When I get on there, even with a purpose for work, I often forget what I got on there for and end up checking the news feed. I really have to stay off of facebook and log out of e-mail and kick my cats out to get real work done.

  15. My biggest distraction is trying to do too many tasks at one time, and therefore not being in the moment of each activity – which leads to me feeling disaapointed and as if I didn’t give 100% of myself to one thing. For example, I’ll try to fold laundry, help the boys with play-dough and talk to my mom at the same time. Next thing I know, I wasnt’ able to give the boys 100% attention, my Mom 100% of my listening and then later I might soemone’s clean underwear in the craft drawer from cleaning up the playdough. I LOVE the blitz idea, and I would like to find a way to do several mini-blitz! Loved this weeks video – thanks Kelly!

  16. Edwina Cowgill says:

    1. Email
    2. Facebook/Twitter
    3. Family – when I’m trying to write, they love to come in, sit down and talk! Love my family dearly but they can be a major distraction.

  17. I feel like my driving time takes up a lot of my time. Also we live in one house during the week and the cabin on the weekend. I used to be able to go to the grocery one time and get everything I needed for my week. Now with planning meals for two different houses I spend some time taking food back and forth. I also feel like I am doing house work in two different places so all of that doesn’t give me any down time to speak of to relax since I have a full time 8:30 to 5:00 job. Sometimes all of this cuts into my sleep time as well. I really do need to work on a schedule.

  18. 1. TV
    2. Facebook
    3. Candy Crush
    Just writing down the schedule for 24 hours made me realize just how much time I’m doing NOTHING all week but sitting down doing nothing. Yet, I feel like I don’t get anything done. I think I just figured out why. lol This is going to be an exciting week in this journey for me because I think I’m going to learn a lot how to make a schedule and create a more balanced to stress free life. I will find “time” to do things that don’t get done because I thought I was too busy for it. YAY!
