1. Leave Distractions Behind

This last summer I finally was convinced to download the 2018 App sensation, Fortnite! At first it was too complicated for me, but the more I played, the more addicting it became. As the summer developed, I was putting in crazy hours playing Fortnite to get my first W. Although I did eventually get a few wins, retrospectively, I look at the crazy hours I spent playing Fortnite and wonder what else could I have accomplished with that time? I’m not advocating working 24/7 nor removing relaxation and enjoyment from your life. However, there comes a moment when an activity becomes more of a distraction, than a benefit. This is what Fortnite turned into for me. Rather than sporadically playing, I would dedicate large amounts of my free time playing a phone app when I could have accomplished so many other things. Learn from my experiences and prepare for the summer by identifying the distractions you have in your life. Be brutally honest with yourself and recall your why for the summer. Once you’ve found the distractions, remove those types of activities/items in your life that may distract you from being your must productive self.

  • Invite your Friends to Come
