Do you know a house chore can become a distraction?

YES!!! YES!!! YES!!!

It can. 
Especially as a woman.
An African woman whose role is tied to the kitchen or to the house.
Who also works from home.🙄🙄🙄

After speaking with a new client about his #branding and social #media entry #strategy , I set to work to develop his #unique selling point ( #usp ) and also create a social media calendar, while at it, I got thirsty and made my way into the kitchen for a bottle of water.

Immediately I stepped into the kitchen, my eyes were fixated on the previous water bottles, I hadn’t refilled and the plates I had to arrange in the plate rack.

So I set to work. 😷😷😷 as a “good african woman”.

After about three minutes, I remembered I was supposed to be at my work station and I only came to the kitchen to quench my thirst.

😝😝😝😝😝
Then it dawned on me, how as women who work from home, we can easily be distracted from work by chores (which can be a legitimate distraction, if not handled properly 😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣)

AND How our productivity flow can easily be hampered by a house chore we had or had no idea we would be attending to.

HOW TO HELP KEEP YOURSELF FOCUSED

1. PREPARE: As you get set for work on a work day, prepare your mind and your work area.
Think about everything that may be a distraction, curb the ones you can curb and ignore that which deserves ignoring.

2. PLAN: Before you set off to work, have a work plan. Be rigid with it if you have to.

3. BALANCE: As a human, balance is key in everything you do, master the art of bringing a balance to the various areas of your life to ensure none suffers or at least to ensure one doesn’t suffer for too long.
