Stop the Time Suckers

Stop the Time Suckers

Summer is winding down for many. You may or may not have accomplished that giant to-do list you created right after school was out for the summer. Hopefully, you were able to get a few things crossed off the list.

What I find to be my downfall are TIME SUCKERS. You know them by Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, the TPT Forums, email, and on and on. You think you are only going to spend just a couple of minutes checking something. And then, WHAM! You've spent 2 hours of doing nothing but social media. It's true and you know it.

What do you do about it now that school is going to be starting soon? TURN THEM OFF! Yes, that's what I said. Turn them off. If you have 3 things you want to accomplish for the day, you will not get them done by being on social media. Turn them off until you complete those 3 things. Turn off the notifications and the sounds so you aren't tempted to look.

Yes, I've been there. Yes, I've gotten myself lost on social media and not completed my tasks.

Maybe there's a 12-step program for this. But you don't have time for it now. Summer is ending and you still want to create 5 more resources before going back to school.

This is go-cold-turkey time.

You can do this!
