Does This Sound Familiar?
Do you spend the day responding to the needs of everyone else but never get to your own work?
Do you "do" a lot of work, but never complete the work that matters?
Do you struggle to tune out all of the distractions and interruptions?
Is your inbox determining your day?
Dealing With Distractions
There are cultural norms that have encouraged and even celebrated being seen as constantly working.
Multitasking had a long run and for awhile was seen as a badge of honor. People were admired for how much they could seemingly do at once.
Fortunately this is beginning to shift and we see that multitasking is not only less revered, but studies are showing how detrimental it can be.
Splitting our attention between tasks is actually impossible to maintain due to the limits on our attention bandwidth. Attempts to shift from task to task, requires not only a mental shift, but a neurobiological switch to be thrown. The negative effects of which are increasingly detrimental to our memory, and other cognitive functioning. These effects negatively impact our decision making, and thus our work and our life.
Other People's Agendas
You are constantly giving away your time.
The minute you open Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. The minute you open your inbox. The minute you respond to the ping of your phone or the red dot hovering in the corner of an app, you have given your time to someone else.
We have convinced ourselves that we are somehow indispensable, that we are "on-call" at a moments notice for whoever wants our attention. Take back your attention. Put it where YOU want it.

What People Are Saying
WLOV feels like a long lost missing link for so many Innovation Creatives wanting to create big impact in the world in a way that honors their need for freedom and flexibility.Aime Miyamoto
WLOV is all about ways to make the change. From the start WLOV reframes what we normally associate with productivity. So, Willpower, Habits, Decisions, and Distractions are recast in a new light. Once we understand the typical elements associated with productivity often don't help, it opens the door to change. So, ideas like putting success in your way, systems, restarting, and frameworks support us in taking a new approach -- one that works!!Walter Akana
