How to focus. It plagues me.
Not a fan of prescriptions, I looked into, the “Why” of this issue.
- So many things to do….
Does your day become a task list? Are you moving from one thing to the next? Well that explains why it’s hard to zero in. Moving things around in your day, as most important first, can subdue the chaos. The Smaller items, think of ways to minimize, or to group them. Even if you do have multiples of items on your list, you can feel the achievment on getting a group of things done, in a block of time. 30 min. 1 hour. It makes you feel, less like your jumping from topic to topic.
What’s the Key: Organization.
2. Prioritizing the Big things….
Turn everything off. Make your small steps to completion list. How are you going to get this done. Realistically. How long is it going to take, and what are you going to determine yourself to do to get there? Now, when you focus on that, you will see, that if you don’t complete this step. X, you will not get to Step Y. Realizing the big picture of things, will help you turn off the t.v. stop munching on chips. Not text, message or be looking at email, instead of finishing your task.
Somehow, when you look a the picture, with you in it, and imagine the finish line, hours seem to go faster. You are working towards something, instead of punishing yourself at 11pm.
What’s the Key? Knowing your strengths.
3. Feeling Balanced
This is something to remember when you are sitting, working, telling your kids, that Mommy is busy, and feeling like you “Should have been there,” for them. When you feel balanced, you know, that you are working int he right direction. Mom’s, wives, just you for yourself, deserve the time, to work towards what you need done. You need to feel balanced, You are giving enough time to yourself and to your family. You are giving enough time to yourself, outside of work. You are balanced. You will lack focus if you are thinking, “Maybe I should read to the kids, real quick.”
Plan your actions, include things that will make you feel balanced, and move.
What’s the Key: Not Forgetting Yourself
