Here’s a practical guide to ban work/life distractions, increase productivity and reduce stress. Whether you’re a businessperson, community leader, parent or retiree, you can adapt an active role in enhancing your performance and quality of life–distraction free! Discover the root causes of your distractions, develop a 5-step plan and adapt strategies to move from good intention to positive action.

On average, dealing with interruptions at work consumes more than two hours a day or 28% of your whole workday. For many, it feels like there are mysterious forces that thwart your best efforts to be productive at work and beyond. These forces are labeled demons of distraction. And, these distractions deplete your psychic energy and divert your attention from important tasks, creating a barrier to being productive. You don’t have to let your life spin out of control; you can take action against your distractions now. Increasing productivity by reducing distractions is a skill everyone can learn and improve. Confronted with today’s uncertainties and challenges, banning distractions from your work/life can help manage your scattered, disorganized and forgetful mind.

Drawing on the author’s years as a trainer and coach, Markel’s Actions Against Distractions: Managing Your Scattered, Disorganized and Forgetful Mind provides a step-by-step guide to banning common distractions from work/life. It provides a 5-step plan of attack and 7 strategies to implement an action plan against common distractions such as technology, interruptions, an unruly mind, stress and fatigue. With amusing stories, readers are guided to adapted research-based strategies to their individual needs and style. Ample examples and exercises allow the reader to answer the question, how do I change ineffective habits and move from good intentions to positive actions. Actions Against Distractions can be used alone as a workbook or in tandem with Defeating the 8 Demons of Distraction: Proven Strategies to Increase Productivity and Decreasing Stress.
