Spring Distractions

How do YOU deal with spring distractions?

How do you stay on track with spring fever in the air?
There are so many distractions in our lives it is often difficult to focus on longer term goals. When there are no bells ringing and structures in place that ensure that you are moving ahead with your studies, it is easy to procrastinate. It is easy to put off working on course activities until later. Unfortunately, when "later" comes along there are other distractions. Self discipline is a part of success in almost everything you do. Sometimes you have to be absolutely ruthless with yourself to get things done. Working hard to earn the rewards you give yourself can be part of a strategy for moving ahead.

We want to hear what you do to avoid spring distractions.

I try to eliminate possibilities for getting dragged away to do something else. A quiet space away from traffic, phones, televisions, people really helps.
MSN chatters probably have to shut down MSN while working on course activities.
