Focus For The Unfocused
It isn’t easy staying focused on the job. Many distractions can keep us from staying on track with what we need to do such as procrastination, laziness, and a lack of motivation or interest in getting the job done. If we want to attain our goals, we need to learn how to be focused enough to see them through to the end.
Here are a few ways for the unfocused to maintain focus on their work:
Do priority tasks first
Start off with your important tasks first. They need your focus!
Getting to the easier tasks might seem like you’re getting more done faster, but they actually take your focus off the more important ones that NEED attention, and before you know it you’ve wasted your time on work that could have been saved for later when the more important jobs are now within the deadline.
Focus your attention on your priority tasks of the day, and you’ll learn what it means to set your sights on what matters first.
Never attempt to focus on too much in your life at once. It leads to more loss of focus than it does building it up.
It might seem a good idea at the time to take on as much as you can, but you’ll find yourself more scatterbrained and unfocused than you were before.
It’s always best to keep your focus trained on single tasks instead of dividing it on so many at once.
Block out time
To stay focused, you must give your all to the task at hand and decide what you want to give your time to for the day.
This keeps you from becoming unfocused in choosing the hours you want to allocate to the tasks of your day. Ask yourself what it is you want to spend the most and least time on and you’ll find yourself knowing just how much focus you’ll be giving to your work each time.
Set your goals early on
Set your goals clearly and as early as possible so you don’t lose sight of what it means to accomplish your work for the day.
Set your goals clearly so you know exactly how you get to them as you accomplish your tasks and also set them as early as you can so that you aren’t rushing to finish them.
Staying focused on our work can help us reach our goals no matter how difficult it may seem. All things worth getting always take a lot of effort and this is no exception.
