Welcome to another episode of tiffanyngu.com
Right now, I’m shooting this video from a ferry, while on my way to Kota Kinabalu (Sabah).
In this video, I want to share with you some of the distraction which can reduce your productivity in running a successful online business.
I personally have experienced many distraction while running my business online. I hope you will not repeat my mistakes. Nowadays, we are faced many social media apps. They can either control you or you control them.
When it comes to running a business, you must have the right mindset and focus of an entrepreneur. If you really want to do well in something, you really need to have full concentration.
Let me share with you some of the distraction which I had experienced before or still struggling with.
I do whatsapp a lot with my family, friends and customers from my mobile phone and laptop.
Whenever I receive whatsapp messages, I just have this tendency that I must answer them right away. One of the best ways to control yourself from answering constant messages coming from people is to put your mobile phone on the flight mode.
We are living in a world whereby we constantly receive a lot of emails from different people. In the online business industry, I am sure most of us subscribe to many email lists of different internet marketers. What I would suggest is, if you are no longer following certain internet marketers, just unsubscribe from their lists. For those “gurus” whom you still follow because of the content that they share, or you like the way they write their email, just keep them by categorising them into different folders.
- Social Media
There are many social media platforms out there. I do a lot of business using Facebook. Whenever I finish work, I try to stop looking at Facebook. I just want to give my brain some time to rest. It is important to set a standard for yourself as to when to stop playing with social media and just focus on giving your full attention to your love ones or whatever you are doing.
- Household ChoresCleaning up your house or garden are some of the things which I believe can be outsourced.I live in an apartment in KL. I have a maid who comes over to my place every 2 weeks. I always request for the best maid from the maid agency. The reason is because I do not want to waste time supervising them. Think about some of the chores which you can outsource to people while you focus on doing the high revenue activities.
Remember, doing the money making activities are the only way forward to bring profits to your business.
