145. You May Be Living Distracted if You Cannot Complete Tasks

by | May 14, 2024 | Podcast

Do you find no matter how hard you try you just cannot complete tasks often? You can’t do what you set out to do? As I mentioned in last week’s episode, numerous women aren’t aware just how distracted we are living. I used to be one of them until I realized I had a problem with distractions running and ruling my life. Consequently, I was missing priceless moments happening right in front of me. Maybe you can relate?

Could you be living distracted?

I knew what I needed to do. My to-do list stared at me, full of items just waiting to be crossed off. Written in my own handwriting, they were important to accomplish that day. I worked in my office all day long, taking bathroom and stretch breaks. And at the end of the day, I looked at my list and only crossed off one of the items! What?? How could that be?? I worked all day, yet I didn’t get done what I needed to.

Does this sound familiar?

Has this scenario or a similar one ever happened to you? Where you ended your full day, but you realized you didn’t finish what you set out to do? Or you didn’t accomplish what you needed to?

Two questions I ask when I talk about this second indication of living distracted are:

  1. Do you often find you’re not able to complete what needs to be done?
  2. Do you continue to move your task list to the next day?

If we can respond “yes” to either one of these, we might be living distracted.

We may be living distracted if we cannot complete tasks.

Not only do these daily distractions negatively affect our productivity, but they also negatively affect our lives. And friend, our lives are too important to live them distracted.

I share in this episode how I figured out what was keeping me from accomplishing what I needed to, and maybe it’s affecting you, too. Plus a timely passage of Scripture encourages us!

Friend, we have hope, even if we cannot complete tasks. If you’re realizing for the first time that you may be living distracted, know you’re not left without hope. Understanding and becoming aware is the first step to a solution.

God has good plans for our lives, and they don’t include living distracted. I’m cheering you on today and every day.
