7 Lifehacks For More Focus

7 lifehacks

The dawn of the information age has brought its own problems with it and one
of the major problems is the inability to focus.

The ping of a What’s app message, the need to constantly check the number
of likes we got for our Facebook posts, so much so that even when we are
driving 70 mph on a highway we can’t resist the temptation to text, instead of
focusing on driving and end up playing with our own lives as well as the lives
of others on the highway.

Let’s take a look at how we can get more focused.

 

1. Switch off Multi-tasking

Multi-tasking, the word itself has become fashionable these days. The root
cause of losing focus can be this very thing, instead of doing something that
we enjoy and taking pleasure in what we are doing, we end up doing a lot of
different things while enjoying none of it.

2. Get Away from Distractions

The world DID function when there weren’t any cell phones. So for God’s sake
put your phones in silent mode and resist the temptation to constantly check
for social media updates when you’re watching a movie, at friend’s dinner
party etc.

Cell phones are just one example, the same applies to tablets, computers, the
ubiquitous TV etc, all of which vie for our attention and can distract us in a jiffy.

3. Set Clear Goals

Being clear about what you set out to do gets half the job done, even before
you start it. By meandering about the job and not able to clearly define what
you are going to do, you lose focus midway and may be leave the job half done.

For example if you want to clean your house, set a date and say to yourself
that you will clean the house and finish the job by 5:00 PM on a Sunday.

4. Time slot method

Research has show that you are most productive at certain time of days, like
early morning or late at night. Delegate tasks that are toughest and need most
of your attention to these time slots.

5. Prioritize Work

In your to-do list, set the work that is most important on top and work towards
it. If some tasks can wait, let them wait, don’t lose focus on your current job by
worrying about less important things.

6. Take Breaks

If you are not making headway in your current task, try walking away from it
and coming back to it after sometime to get it done.

Instead of just banging your head against a wall, take a break and come back
to it with a fresh new perspective.

7. Exercise

Make exercise a part of your daily routine. It increases the blood flow to your
brain, sets you in a positive mood and helps you stay focused for the day ahead.

Finally…

 

I’m sure you can come up with a few more ideas that will help you become
even more focused and more productive in your daily business tasks… so,

    Another great way to get laser focused is to meditate before you start any task or project. It will help you to clear your mind and get centered… if you’re into that type of thing.
