Tip 2 - Stop Distracting yourself!
What is your biggest distraction? Allow me to answer this, it is you!
I invite you to turn OFF your distractions.
Checking interrupts your concentration when you are in a work flow. Distractions like your smartphone to emails and desktop applications.
Consider having key times a day that you check your queries, handling each query only once.
YOU get to control your devices, don’t have your technology control you!
This will help reduced distractions and increase your focus.
Tip 3 - Get comfortable
Get more comfortable…….take a look at:
The clothes that you are wearing, are they practical for what you need to do today?
How comfortable is your chair? Can you replace it, use a pillow?
What is your background noise, do you need music to focus? Choose a great playlist like this. Do you need to turn off all noise?
How is the temperature of your room?
Has your work area everything you need and have you got rid of everything you don’t need?
Know what kind of environment makes you the most comfortable and can help you maintain your focus today!
Tip 4 - Focus on something small
Take one of your big projects and break it down into smaller pieces and focus on just one, one that can be accomplished more easily.
Your reward circuits in your brain will THANK YOU for it and it will drive your motivation for all the other small parts!
PLUS, it only requires a shorter period of time for focus which means greater odds for completion! Read more about celebrating here
