How to Sharpen your Focus

Posted by medliorator on November 11, 2008

1. Deep focus instead of multi-tasking. We often kid ourselves thinking that we’re getting more done by multi-tasking, but we often end up just spending a lot of time spinning our wheels. Try to focus on one thing deeply, instead of spreading your attention across multiple tasks.

2. Wraps up tasks that are easily completed. Write down everything that can be completed in less than 10 minutes and finish everything on the list before you start on a project that requires more focus. This doesn’t mean that every time something comes up that would take less than ten minutes to do, you do it. You simply batch everything together that requires ten minutes of time or less.

7. Distinguish between urgent and important. We often spend most of our time doing things that seem important, but really aren’t. They are just urgent.
