Turn off distractions - Soul of Ideas

How to Switch off Distractions


You know in my journey to be more creative and build my own brand, I stumbled with a massively destructive problem.

My strength had become my greatest weakness.

I couldn’t concentrate on what I needed. For the life of me, I couldn’t do it.

I couldn’t take action even when no one was stopping me.

I had already defeated myself, even before starting.

Don’t let this happen to you.

How can one pretend to create something original if one stays at being original and never gets to “creating”?

My wild and successful imagination was crippling me to no end.

I could only imagine, but I could not make it real.

Has this ever happened to you?

You become great at fabricating ideas but never good enough at implementing them?

It’s a terrible thing.

It’s such a bad thing to be able to see the future, but be unable to get there.

I’ve hit highs and lows and after a lot of time struggling I stumbled with a switch.

I found the switch to turn it off and let my action-taking on, and today I want to share it with you.

It can be abstract for you, but for me it took the shape of a few magic words.

This is what I say whenever I want to stop daydreaming on command and start being productive in an instant.

“I don’t have time for this”

Dismissive isn’t it?

Yeah, and I like it.

I used to be offended by people who said that about things that I liked.

Now, I use it as a weapon.

And it works wonders.

Whenever you are getting distracted you can say with honesty:

“I don’t have time for these things”

There is no shame in it, not for you, because you are doing a service to yourself my friend.

What a liberating thought.

What a freeing phrase

It is such a great place to be (mentally).


Because you are time based, and when you are limited by time you are purified, you are separated, set for a certain thing.

And because you are focused , you get your issues resolved.

Because you are limited, you don’t have time for distractions.

You don’t have time for this

No time for drama.

No time for nonsense.

No time for anything else, but this: “What matters”

No, I don’t have time to eat poorly. I don’t have time to not exercise. I don’t have time to look like a drag.

What do I have? No Time To Waste (that’s what I have)

That’s just it, it makes me free.

Signing off once again
