Are you struggling to finish your tasks? Are you always distracted by notifications, gossiping, or anything that’s random?
In that case, you and I are alike. And you know what? Focusing on a single thing is probably one of the hardest things at work.
There’s always something that interrupts you, right?
- Another person
- A phone call
- A meeting
- A false emergency
Sure, you can blame on these things but that’s weak. You and I, we both know that things can’t interrupt you without your permission. And that simply means that every time you’re not focused, you’re simply giving someone or something the permission to invade your mind.
Scary, isn’t it?
Your life will never benefit just by looking at Instagram or Facebook, watching useless Youtube videos and reading negative articles.
So, what can you do to improve your focus? Here, are 2 things that I always do when I find myself not being able to focus on what really matters to me.
Every day, we accumulate stuff. We accumulate ideas. It’s the human tendency to make the ideas which are exposed openly as their own. Funny, isn’t it? Have you ever thought about that?
Okay, so let me take up my own example here. Being a writer, I constantly observe so many things around me on a regular basis. People actually come up and give me n number of ideas which I actually appreciate and one such idea was of starting a YouTube Channel. I built the strategy, I worked on creating a model for it. But there was just problem – It consumes too much of my time and attention and as a consequence of it, I have to spend less time on writing and creating new articles. I thought of doing only that thing in which my time was fruitfully strategized and organized and that’s how eliminating comes into place. Eliminating is a key strategy that I use in many aspects of my life and so want you to focus on.
It’s important to figure out what you need to eliminate from your lives to make it completely organized, simple and that it’s easy to focus on?
If you’re struggling with focusing your mind on a single thing, try this strategy. Make your life simple and that’s a breeze to live.
THINK ABOUT YOUR PAST SUCCESS-
So, 2017 was actually the best year of my life as my passion for working as a writer came into existence and that’s how I started with my own blogging website. It’s never easy to step forward and take critics and that’s what helped me to grow – as a person and as a writer. The life of a blogger starts with the booming stats in the first six months but what after a year or so when the audience gets bored with your creative content? That’s where you have to start with your next strategy!
All you need to do is remember all those positive events that happened in the past. That’s a strategy to overcome your cold phases and runs a stream of positive energy levels in your blood.
Have you ever heard of the neurotransmitter, Serotonin? Serotonin is present on the right side of the brain and is responsible for all your emotional and creative nature. To improve your focus, boost your serotonin activity. When serotonin goes up, your focus goes up. Ultimately, that’s what you should do.
When I can’t focus, the first thing I do is acknowledge the problem and the solution required to correct that problem. Some people go through life without even acknowledging they have problems.
Focus on your life. Think about what matters to you. Do those things and don’t get distracted. Learn to stay on the path!
