Resistance is a bitch for sure. I had to start turning off notifications on my phone when I exercise. I would be in the middle of a set and get 10 discord notifications pop up and cut my music out. So I fixed that. I spend so much time at work which keeps me from getting distracted. I can’t work with a phone in hand so that is a non issue. Which makes me think that work may be the biggest resistant bear in the forest. I often wonder how many things I could get done if I had all that time. One day I will have that problem to solve and I know the resistance will be following along. That will be the real test.
Much of my work currently requires the internet.Some things online do distract me while working but I think my main distractions come from people around me. I’m not saying spending time with anyone of them is a distraction, but there are moments in which they are distracting and this comes from many different people. Sometimes resistance comes from the the body or mind be tired or heavy, sometimes the internet connection is running exceptionally slow, and I’m sure there are plenty of others.
Looking forward to trying writing down resistances that popup throughout a day and see what I get.
ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN thank you will help my exams and work
Resistance is seductive. One of my restiance been having is copyright issues with my YouTube and having YouTube channel deleted did with Cohort. But instead of just being down about it have to meet it with aggressive action build with what I got.
I can see i face multiple distractions, being my mobile, social media and friends want to catch up or do something. I tend to sit down to work and not too long after I find myself thinking about my phone, i would usually pick it up and have a look at Instagram or snapchat for basically no reason.
Now I’ve decided to leave my phone in another room, this way i’ll me fully focused on the task at hand. It’s great to be conscious of what distracts you.
So tracking my distractions yesterday it turns out, with no surprise, that my biggest distraction from getting my things done starts with the saying “Mom.” Others talk about coworkers interrupting them but try having a 6 yr old come in with the power of Taz (Bugs Bunny reference) every 5-10 minutes with something “important”. As I was listening to him all I could think is “resistance is futile you will be distracted.”
I’m guessing that if I can work around my minions coming in every 5-10 minutes wanting the “Mom” attention and still getting my stuff done, then I think I just might make it.
Resistance. What distracts me?
It used to be discord. I got smart though. I don’t spend near the amount of time on it as I used to. I have gotten so much done.
My phone is a distraction. 99% of the time when it rings, it’s my mom. This happened just last night when I was working on my website. She called and needed me to order something for her off amazon . My phone doesn’t distract me often though. I have email notifications off. I rarely get text messages. And I rarely use social media. I will monitor all distractions over the coming days though. I’m sure I’ll find other things!
for me it’s a lot about remaining comfortable and avoiding new stuff
- lazying in bed
- thoughts that justify not to do what I WANT to do and instead just do something that I’m comfortable doing
- this is the strongest type of resistance I get
- I find that planning ahead helps a bit because you can move attention away
from those negative thoughts and focus on the plan
- watching Youtube videos
so yes, I don’t get resistance in the usual forms that other people do, but I do get a lot of the above
in the recent past I had e-mail cause I would get notifications on my phone and would always instantly check it, but I’m not a popular person and I have decided to unsubscribe from a lot of things since they weren’t that helpful for me
My biggest resistance is my cell phone and social networking websites such as:
Instagram and Snapchat.
Gonna try turning my wifi off so I can defer them and yes I did write it down.
