SORT BY Relevancy
Being focused is a vital factor in obtaining and reaching a specific goal. Yet so very often the drama of everyday can get in the way. Are you aware of all that distracts you from acheiving what you say you desire? Whilst the new year is still fresh, let's take a practical and real look at being alert to all that can distract us and look at the plausibility of multitasking and how this is processed by the brain.
Looking forward to you joining me as we prepare to ensure that 2015 is a phenomenal year and to gain insight into what may be limiting your power to manifest!

— I got work done, but I also researched a bunch of newish personal interests (mostly programming and cycling), played an iPhone trivia game with my kids, read a bunch of online articles, and did very little of the writing I’d planned.
Digital distractions have also pulled me from reading and meditation in the last week. I think they plague all of us to varying extents.
Recognizing When it Happens
One of the insidious things about the distraction habit is we often don’t even realize it’s happening. It sneaks up on us, like old age, and before we know it we’re addicted and powerless.
See What’s Going On
Once you’re aware of the distractions and urges, you can start to examine the causes.
So you’re building an awareness, and you’ve examined your causes. If you haven’t yet, take a few minutes to walk around your office or house, or better yet get outside, and contemplate these things.
Considering What’s Important
What’s truly important to you? Social media? News? What everyone else is doing all the time? Games?
People who should listen to this show are entrepreneurs, career coaches

Show Topic: The argument against co-ed facilities is buffered by the frequency in which clients in residential treatment facilities are engaging in romantic relationships. The rate of success of these relationships are so low it doesn't even register statisically. These Recovery Romances also initiate in 12 Step support groups, and other recovery formats. What does register are the recovery processes derailed. Why do these Recovery Romances get started? Why are the particpants resistant to outside influence against the relationships? Is true individual recovery possible when you are involved in a Recovery Romance? Lets dig down into this dilema.........

Topic for the Day: Deception, Distraction, and Distrust
From Jef Nance - Deception Secrets
Are You Focused or Distracted? How to Master the Only 2 States of Mind You’re Ever in…
Do you ever stop to think about… what you’re thinking about?
What do you think most of your thoughts concern: Yourself? Others? An ever-alternating mix of the two?
Our minds are like little machines that never stop running. So we get used to the continual purring of the motor, virtually NEVER even realizing what it’s producing… or considering that we can affect the product.
So I’ll ask you to consider this: How much of your thought do you think is centered oncontrol?
This week my guest is Terry Matlen MSW, author of The Queen of Distraction: How Women with ADHD Can Conquer Chaos, Find Focus, and Get More Done.
Do you rule the realm of disorganization, clutter, and chaos? Are you constantly battling to get things done? Are you ready to give up and toss your day planner into the dungeon (otherwise known as your closet)? If so, you might just be The Queen of Distraction. And whether or not you’ve been formally diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you probably already know that something’s got to give.
The Queen of Distraction presents practical skills to help women with ADHD achieve focus and balance in all areas of life, whether it’s at home, at work, or in relationships. Psychotherapist Terry Matlen delves into the feminine side of ADHD—the elements of this condition that are particular to women, such as: relationships, skin sensitivities, meal-planning, parenting, and dealing with out-of-control hormones. In addition, the book offers helpful tips and strategies to get your symptoms under control, and outlines a number of effective treatment options for you to pursue.
From getting dressed in the morning, to making it to a job interview, to planning dinner—sometimes just getting through the day can be an ordeal for a woman with ADHD. If you’ve been accused of getting lost in your own world, maybe it’s time to make a change. If you’re ready to start getting organized and stop leaving your groceries in the car, this book can help. It’s more than just a survival guide; it’s an ADHD how-to to help you thrive!

Often we become distracted by allowing ourselves to be overstimulated or "sensitive" words spoken and things that are insignificant and irrelevant. When this happens we loose our ability to focus, on the things that ar important, becoming more vunerable to "feelings of guilt" and losing sight of VICTORY !
