Increase Your Focus for Better Productivity

It goes without saying that technology has streamlined many tasks, but instead, we have more tools to do more in less time to do it in. Leaving you stressed and overwhelmed.

You have been lead to believe that if you don’t multitask every minute of your day you will not be productive. But increase your focus for better productivity and it will give you a sense of achievement..

Increasing your focus means you get up each day, looking forward to what you can achieve.  Being focused means you are making progress towards what is most important to you. And at the end of the day, you will feel a greater sense of productivity and fulfillment.

Why focus for better productivity?

Ponder these questions:

  • What results happen when you are focused?
  • Does being focused make you less stress?
  • Can being more focused lead to happiness?

Being focused on one thing for a certain period of time allows you to do a better quality of work, more work gets done quicker, and your creative ideas flow easier. Being focused on one task at a time is less stressful on your mind which then allows you be happier.

It’s difficult for people to remain focused on one task when there are so many things that can distract us such TV, radio, cell phones, Internet and social media. 

It’s difficult to get completely away from all these distractions but it is absolutely doable.

You can turn off all notifications, close the door to your office and turn off the tv.

When you focus on a single task, avoiding distractions, your brain becomes focused on that task alone. This lets you complete that task much more quickly than if you are trying to complete two or more tasks at once.

Maybe you need to write a blog post, do your bookkeeping for the week and research information for a book you’re writing. The best thing to do is to set aside all but one task. I often will pick one day a week and write my content for the blog because it allows me to not only stay focused but if something unexpected comes up, I am still meeting my own personal deadlines.

Focusing on one thing for a certain period of time helps you think better. Having your mind scattered over several tasks at once keeps you from thinking about what you are actually doing. You only have time to complete a task quickly before you must move on to the next one. All the while you are trying to remember everything that has to be done. When you focus, you are able to think about only one thing for that period of time.

Focusing allows your subconscious to do the work. Think about when you learned to ride a bike or drive a car. It was difficult in the beginning, but when you began focusing on what you were doing, your subconscious took over and helped you learn. The same is true in your everyday tasks. Once you begin focusing solely on one task, your subconscious helps you do them quicker and easier.

It’s important to focus on one task at a time to become more productive, do better quality work and be less stressed. Focusing can help you be more creative and have more happiness.

And the truth is that it is challenging to get started with focus and not make excuses or get distracted by everything around us.

If you’re ready to stop talking about what you will do “one day” and start being more focused with support, accountability, and encouragement then the Gathering is for you.
