Learn to Focus and Deal with Disruptions

In the fourth episode of our goal setting series, we’re diving into how to handle the inevitable interruptions that come up and derail us from our goals. Carrie starts off with how to find your focus groove in the first place, and how to identify if and when you’ll allow interruptions. Believe it or not, rest is actually really important when it comes to getting focused again; Carrie breaks down how to know if you’re getting distracted or if you really just need a break.
