If you’re like me, trying to work in a cluttered area is like trying to drive a car while text messaging a friend. It can be done, but it is neither simple nor recommended.  Chances are, the surroundings will be so distracting that your ability to focus will be nonexistent. As your mind wanders, so too the speed and accuracy of your thoughts diminish.

It may take a few hours to organize your space so it is clutter-free.  It may take a few days, but the time will be well spent.

Imagine how much easier it will be to concentrate at the task at hand, without the unnecessary junk that is clouding your ability to think.


Interruptions can come from many sources throughout the day.  First, realize that interruptions are part of life. They are going to occur.  My best advise is to anticipate the things or the people that will be competing for your time and then set a plan in place to destroy the occasions, before they occur.  Schedule communications with your associates on your time not theirs, set your phone to silent mode when necessary, and shut your door when you don’t want to be disturbed.  There will be plenty of time to catch up and socialize after you accomplish your work.  Make it a priority to protect your time.


“Plan your work, and work your plan.”  The absolute first rule of time management is to start with a solid plan.  You need to know what you want to accomplish from the beginning of the day.  Unless your plan involves a leisurely stroll on the beach, a well structured road map is what you will need.  Plan your day with specific goals, time-bound benchmarks, and measurable results.  If you don’t take the time to plot your direction, don’t plan on reaching your destination, at least not any time soon.  Becoming proficient at managing time will therefore involve concentrated effort and discipline on our part.

Good luck, and let me know how you are doing.
