The clutter of distraction gets in the way of great performance — for leaders, and for teams. Distraction is the enemy. It gets in the way of focus. Anything that distracts a leader or a team from focusing on the task at hand is a huge problem.
Distractions are everywhere and come in many forms: interruptions, new relationships, competing issues, unhappy family members, text messages. Let’s not even talk about your inbox. Eliminating the clutter of distraction allows for the kind of concentration and focus required to achieve great outcomes.
Every great leader attempts to stamp out distraction for themselves and for the team. Creating an environment where distractions can’t gain a foothold is essential work. Don’t let distraction make you less productive than you should be. Distraction is your daily opponent. Win the day.
