Starting out in a new industry can be very exciting but if you aren’t fully aware of what it takes to become an Appreneur then you may find yourself getting easily distracted which could lead to your inevitable failure. Today we are going to look at the most common distractions that are stopping app makers in their tracks when they make an Android app.
make an android app without the distractions
1: Social networks – Oh yeah, those amazing sites that are perfect for your marketing are often the main cause of failure to an app maker, especially if you are working from home alone. It is too easy whilst you are online to just click over to your personal page for a second. That one-second will take at least an hour of your time and take your train of thought away from your work.
2: Mobile phones – How many times do you switch your phone onto silent when you are settling into a day of work? So often I find that answering a two second phone call will then lead to a quick click on your favorite app, a little read of your whatsapp messages, a sneaky peak at your emails, all distracting you from work. That’s another hour wasted.
3: Lack of organization – Having a clear plan of what you need to complete in an app making session can turn your app making success around. If you just sit down and start work without a plan you will not be as focus as you would be if you have some clear objectives to be ticked of your to-do list.
4: Workspace – So many people that start on an app making path decide to do so from home in their spare time, however, if you are sitting in the living room with the kids running around, the TV on, and your partner chatting to you about their day, in all due respects, you are wasting your time. Take your app making seriously and get yourself out of the family room and into a quiet space, one hour in a quiet space will get you more work completed than 6 hours in the family room and your family will get more quality time with you.
