Be Carried Away

'Drift time' is when you’re no longer focused on what you are doing. When you are in drift time, you check email, watch a video, or engage in any behavior that distracts you from completing projects.

Drift time is terrific when it is used properly. Everyone needs a break now and then. Be aware, though, of interruptions that suck up valuable time and keep you from finishing your projects. I think it’s all about balance. You know, some work, some play.

Loving That Donut

Craving sugar isn't always about sugar. Caffeine isn't always about a boost. Lasagna isn't always about going Italian. Your body has cravings for reasons other than it's time to eat or drink.

Consider this. The top three reasons for emotional eating are: (1) you have unmet needs, (2) you are bored, or (3) you are trying to distract yourself from something unpleasant.

So. The next time you reach for a donut ask yourself, "Why do I want this donut?" If you feel driven to eat it -- even though you want to eat healthy -- chances are you are eating for emotional reasons.

This is one of the best times not to eat that little round sugary cloud of joy. Abstain. Face what you don't want to face. And, when you do, it lessens its power.

Believe me. The day will come when you eat a donut because you want to. Not because you need to.

Figure Out Why You're Stuck

Drama. It distracts. Anything that distracts you from what you need to be doing can keep you stuck. And feeling stuck is an awful feeling.

Step back for a moment and scrutinize your daily life. Find out if you are allowing drama to dominate your time. Remember, drama may feel important and necessary at the time, but the truth is, that it is a surface diversion.

This means, stay focused on your goals. Know where you want to go and keep out those pesky distractions. The ultimate end is the feeling you get when you achieve and accomplish your dream.
