Deal With Distractions

In Learning Network by Jamie Mierau

During our recent “Find Your Focus” webinar, we asked nonprofit managers what gets in the way of their focus. A top answer was distraction. For these managers distractions came in the forms of staff interruptions, email, phone calls, social media, and more.

We also asked these managers how they protect their focus from distractions. They had a wealth of great ideas, which you can find here.

There are a variety of additional strategies that can help you deal with distraction that arise from others, yourself, and the environment. Check out these matrices (Managing Distractions Worksheet) for strategies to manage your most pressing distractions.
