Are you someone who feels that you have too much energy during the day? If that’s the case then it is only fair to assume that you want to make better use of that energy, especially with regards to work. With that much energy within you, imagine the things that you can do if you be very productive. However, that’s really easier said than done because staying focused while working can be rather tricky.
First off, it is important to note how a keen sense of focus can really help you in business. Seems like a very simple concept, but there are people out there that think moving from task to task spastically can help you cover more bases when it is really hurting your productivity levels. Here is a short video illustrating the importance of focus in your business, and life!
Focus Equals Power- How to Unleash Your Abilities by alimayar
Want to stay focused while working so you can harness your high level of energy? Here are some tips that you need to keep in mind:
Create a To-Do List
If you can, write your to-do list for that particular day of work. Preferably, you should do this the night before or if not, you can always create the list while drinking your coffee. With a to-do list handy, you will find yourself more focused since everything is in order; you just need to view your cheat sheet (to-do list). You’ll be amazed at how productive you can get once you know exactly what needs to be done.
Take Care of Small Tasks First
Do you regularly have small tasks that you believe you can delay and return to later? Time has an unusual means of catching up. There’ll always be fire to put out. Large or small, these will rob time away from and your capacity to complete the small tasks. For instance, if a person pops in an e-mail to inquire about an answer that you have right away, just reply to it so you can get it out of the way fast.
Some of the things that can break your focus are the everyday distractions. Your beeping smartphone, browsing your favorite site, checking your social media accounts – these are all examples of distractions. Remove these distractions and preferably, work in an area that is quite and will let you concentrate.
Take Regular Breaks
Before you say, “OK I will now focus on my work and not do anything else,” don’t forget – we require breaks. Thus, take brief breaks as opposed to prolonged ones. Personally, I prefer a ten minute break for each hour that I work (with great focus of course). These breaks enable you to stretch your muscles a bit and recharge your brain therefore enabling you to remain focused better.
