SELF-TEST: THE DISTRACTION PROFILE

LESSON ONE:
The Distraction Profile


 

HOW DISTRACTED ARE YOU?

The Distraction Profile was created to help you identify how distractions personally affect your ability to reach your personal and professional goals and objectives.

In a new poll, respondents were asked this simple question: “What holds you back most at seeing greater results?” The possible answers were:

  1. Lack of Clear Goals
  2. Distractions
  3. Stress
  4. Disorganization

Of these four possible answers, what do you think was the first place result? Distractions! At 56%, it was more than five times higher than the second place answer. We live in a world full of distractions that hinder us from staying focused to get greater results. The greatest robber of success is the lack of focus.

Distraction is any form of mental confusion. Distractions can be anything that causes you to turn aside from your plan or break your focus, anything that stirs up or confuses you with conflicting motives or emotions. Put simply, distractions direct your focus in different directions at the same time. Entrepeneur.com states that Millennials spend 18 hours a day consuming media and many of these areas could be distracting you from achieving your purpose and destiny in life.

In this profile we will ask you a series of 20 questions in 4 areas of distractions: Social Media, Technology, Personal Issues and Cares of the World. Please answer the questions honestly by using the scale listed below. For example, checking Facebook 10 times per day at 5 minutes per session adds up to almost 1 hour per day in just one area of distraction.
