How are you at focusing? I definitely have had my challenges with focus – too many distractions, too many things to do. Sometimes I can sabotage myself just by saying on repeat ‘I have too much to do’ rather than actually doing it! (Is that only me?) .
Focus IS possible however at ANY time. .
Want to know how? It’s simple… .
We live in a world where ticking off all of the ‘to-dos’ is just not possible (think how many emails you receive in a day…). Every evening prioritise an achievable number of tasks you need or want to undertake the next day (the key word here is achievable folks)
Forward planning releases time from your day. By knowing what you are doing and when, means you also know when you have time to rest/ fill the dishwasher/ listen to a podcast.
If you find productivity hard. Focus on 20 minute power pushes on each task. Once you’ve finished a power push, take a break – make a cup of tea, put a wash on, do 10 minutes of yoga and then go back to complete the task. We naturally do this in an office but it’s much harder when you’re working from home.
If you prioritise and plan, you can’t procrastinate. It’s as simple as that. Procrastination is the killer of efficiency.
Do you have any favourite hacks you use to focus?
