Focus is important in everything we do.
Without enough focus, we are easily distracted. We cannot concentrate, so much so that we jump from one task to another without getting anything done.
It is hard to focus especially when the brain is running miles after miles per minute. It’s a good thing there are things we can do to make it focus better.
Here they are:
Forget about multitasking
The brain is powerful, and we all know this. However, it can only take so much and the more we multitask, the longer it will take to get things done. The other downside is that you are not able to do things the way you would when you are not multitasking. Focus on one task, get it done and do the next one. Your brain will thank you for it.
Learn to say no and don’t take more than you can handle. Tell your co-worker you have to focus on something first before you can take on more tasks. You will be more effective this way. When you are at home, do the same to your family and friends. Say no if you know you must and especially when you feel that you would only say yes because you want to please others.
Be confident in what you do. When you know what you are doing and believe in what you can accomplish, you can focus more because you know you can get things done effectively and on time.
Things will get a little confusing sometimes, chaotic even, but you have to be calm because it can help you focus on what you need to do. You may have to practice, but once you get used to it, it does become easier. The brain works better when it isn’t stressing or dealing with a lot of things at the same time.
