Are You Suffering From Squirrel Syndrome?

Do you suffer from the horribly unproductive “Squirrel Syndrome”?

I'm sure you've heard about this … in any business you are trying to build online, but particularly in network marketing, it's so easy to get caught up in the latest “idea” you come across.  At first, you try to follow everything your upline tells you to do, but then you come across another idea or system that someone's team is following and SQUIRREL!  Off you go to try that idea!  Pretty soon, you really aren't getting anything accomplished because you never finish what you start to see if it can actually work for you.

Are you ready for the cure to “Squirrel Syndrome”??  You might be surprised at how simple the cure to this heinous syndrome is.  There is even a new hashtag for it …#SYSD !!!!  Ready for it?


Or if you prefer the softer version …


Now this great piece of advice can be applied to anything to keep you focused on what you are trying to accomplish, but especially, and probably most importantly, when you are working ONLINE … you need to Shut Your Sh*t Down!

When you are building your business online, you are working ON YOUR COMPUTER, and it is so easy to get distracted by text messages, email, Facebook,  LinkedIn, Messenger, Twitter, Instagram and all that kind of stuff.  You really have to make a CONSCIOUS DECISION to shut everything else down!

I remember when I first started building my business online, I was told to shut down all distractions, and I thought to myself, “Oh, I don't need to worry about that, I'm fine!  I am totally into what I'm doing so nothing will distract ME!”  Suddenly, I heard the “bing” or the “bong” of a new Facebook post or Messenger, and thought, “Oh, I'll just take a quick look to see what that was”.  The next thing I knew, I'd moved on from checking out what the notification was all about to looking at videos of baby goats for the last half an hour!

So the bottom line is, when you are working online, do everything you can do to stay focused on the task at hand.  Be sure to shut down anything and everything that can distract you from completing what you are working on.  That includes shutting off your phone, closing down Facebook and all other social media, and all the other things on your computer that can send you visual or audible notifications that just interrupt your focus and concentration.

This might sound really simple and unnecessary, but try it, and you will see how much more you can get done when you keep yourself LASER FOCUSED.

Building a netWORK marketing business is hard enough … try implementing #SYSD and I think you will be amazed at how much more productive you can be. It‘s the little things in life that make the biggest difference.
