What are the Demons of Distraction?

Are distractibility and inattention affecting your memory, organization, and relationships?

Are you losing confidence in your ability to handle increased challenges in your life?

Do you want to:

  • Stick with a task and not get sidetracked?
  • Concentrate better so that you won't make so many foolish mistakes?
  • Pay better attention to others so that your relationships don't deteriorate?

Defeating the Demons of Distraction is a program to help reduce distractions, increase productivity, and decrease stress.

In this 24/7 world, the lines between work and life are blurred and distractions interrupt and interfere with performance. Labeled as demons, there are eight types of distraction that negatively affect attention, memory, organization, executive function, and critical thinking.

The eight demons of distraction include technology overload, interruption by others, over-scheduling and inappropriate multitasking, noisy or messy space, stress, fatigue, illness or medication, and unruly mind.

Although a few distractions may be easily managed, constant distractions can lead to feeling overwhelmed, irritable, and ineffective. Better management of distractions, however, spurs greater productivity, creativity, and profitability while lessening stress.

Continual learning is the name of the game for those who want to maintain their edge. That's why it's important to take an active role in defending against the 8 Demons of Distraction.

The Defeating the Demons of Distraction Program features products, books, coaching, and seminars to provide simple but easy-to-apply techniques to battle your Demons of Distraction.
