Help with Focusing? Here Are Some Quick Strategies

Help with focusing? When you’re working in any type of business, focus is critical.  It can be the difference between achieving your goals and seeing them slip way.  Before you can improve your focus, it’s important to assess where it is right now.

But gauging your level of focus can be a challenge.  How do you measure something that can’t be attached to a number?  With focus, you’re not looking to quantitatively measure your focus.  Instead you want to get an idea of the big picture.

Help with Focusing:
1. Goals

One way you can gauge your focus is by asking yourself if you’re accomplishing what you want to accomplish in a given period of time.  That could be a daily task list or it could be weekly or monthly goals that you’ve set.

It’s possible that you’ve set goals that are unattainable, but often if you aren’t reaching your goals it’s because you’re distracted and not focusing on being productive.  It’s important to take a hard look at your goals and determine what the problem is.

Help with Focusing:
2. Keep Track

It can be beneficial to spend a few days tracking the time you’re spending on specific tasks.  For example, in a typical work day how often are you getting distracted by time wasters such as social media or social phone calls? 

Even if you use social media for your business, are you getting distracted by personal interactions?  You may find that when you keep track of a few days you’re spending much more time away from work than you realize.

Keeping a journal is a great way to gauge your focus levels and see where you can make improvements.  It can help you get back on track and improved your time management skills for better performance.

3. Planning

Is your day planned?  Or do you spend a lot of your day just tackling random things?  People who have the most focus tend to plan their day and schedule what work will be done during specific times.  If you’re not doing this, chances are your focus can be improved.

4. Take a Break

You should also think about the breaks that you’re taking throughout the day.  Many people think that taking breaks means a lack of focus, but the opposite is true.  If you’re never taking a break you may actually become more distracted.  The most focused people take scheduled breaks so that they can refocus their mind.

If you’re questioning whether or not you’re focused in your work, chances are you’re struggling in this area.  The good news is that even if you struggle with focus, there are several specific things you can do to improve your focus and increase your productivity.

Stay Focused!

     Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
