When you down for Product Time remove all distractions. No email, social media, tv, texting…no distractions.
The battle we have today is the constant bombardment of information chiming in our ears every 15 seconds. Between calls, texts, Facebook alerts, emails, Twitter, Instagram…ARGHHHH!!! It is so much to swallow while trying to eek out time for chasing words. It is possible to turn it all off for the fifteen minutes you need to be in your Product Time. If it is worth it, you can stay in that quiet space as long as you need.
From time to time I will send out a mass message and tell everyone I am going radio silent for XXX days. Three or four days of absolute peace. Now, I’m not heartless, if someone NEEDS me (kiddos) then, of course, they can reach me. But the goal is to get right in my head. The first day is wasted trying to figure out how to shut down the excess noise in my head and find my focus, but once I do—it is a dream of creativity and goal setting. That’s why the trip to the lake last week was what I needed. Peace, quiet, water, writer friends who get it when I wandered off with my laptop, and wine…wine…wine…Ahhhhh. I wanna go back. **sniff, whine, cry**
Polish your sparkle and just keep twirling.
Find joy. Be joy. Enjoy.
I’m always looking for new friends!
