Focus… something I clearly have been lacking seeing as my last post has been almost a month ago (and I may or may not have several posts started but none done)
I don’t know about you, but when I get busy any chance to focus on anything is completely gone. Most times I end up getting busy and then adding more and more to my schedule until I take a step back and realize that I either need to cut back on what I am doing or only sleep a couple hours each night until things are done.
I usually do a bit of both.
Writing to you here is probably one of those little projects I picked up on the way. But hopefully this will help me recognize (and maybe learn from) the patterns of when I lose my focus. And maybe we will be able to learn together different tips and tricks on staying focused.
I like to have accountability so when I know I have to get something done I will tell a few people so that when they ask how it is going I know that I will have something to tell them – even if it is not details – I hate telling someone that I haven’t looked at, or started something.
I am also a big fan of lists. There is something to be said for being able to cross things off… or delete something… there is a sense of accomplishment at the end of it, I would argue more than when a project is actually completed.
What are some things that you do to keep focused? Anything that makes your focus worse?
