Are You Having Trouble Staying Focused? 4 Ways You Can Stay on Target

targetYou promised yourself that you’d write at least 500 words a day. So you sit down in front of your keyboard, turn on the computer and before you realize it the day has flown by but you haven’t gotten any work done.

There are just too many distractions.

You had to check a few facts for the article you’re working on, then there was email and Twitter and Facebook to check. By that time you just couldn’t get your mind to slow down and target only one subject and decided to play a little Solitaire to clear your mind.

Tweet: If you’re having trouble keeping your commitments because you can’t focus here are 4 things that might help.

StayFocusd  increases your productivity by limiting the amount of time that you can spend on time-wasting websites. Tell it the sites to block you from like gmail, Twitter, Facebook or that online game site and helps keep the promise you made to yourself.

Time Warp reminds you not to procrastinate when you need to get things done. You can select one of three ways for it to give you a gentle reminder:
Redirect – Takes you to a more productive site which you specify,
Quote – Shows your most motivational quote
Timer – Displays the time you’ve spent on the site today

Tell Freedom how long you’d like to focus, and you’re offline (completely) and able to work. If you need to get back online just reboot.

Do certain sounds help you focus, calm you or help slow your scattered thoughts down? On the Soundrown website you can listen to rain, the ocean, night sounds and more while you work.

When you just have to “Get It Done” you don’t have to go it alone!
