One of the most important features that can be developed to help you achieve your goals is the ability to focus on the entire project. But focused emphasis is a skill that many of us seem to lack. We allow ourselves to be easily misguided, pulled out of our way with negative thoughts, fear and postponement.
Here are three tips to help you develop your overall laser focus.
Tip # 1. Declare your current task the most important in the world. Tell yourself that if you do not start, continue and complete this task with the required deadline then catastrophic and catastrophic consequences will occur.
Often it is taught to focus on positive, but I find that this is once when the negatives can be useful too. No, it may not be true that the world ends if you do not achieve your daily goal, but there are plenty of negative consequences for you to think about.
You'll definitely let yourself down and you could let others down. There may be long-term financial consequences and difficult times that could have been avoided by getting this job done. Anyway, it is useful to practice as much as possible.
Write down all the bad stuff that could happen if you do not achieve this goal and pin it because you work as a reminder why you should get this done. Tap it next to all the good things you're heading for. This is the perfect carrot and sticking process.
Tip # 2. Allow no static. We are dumbfounded creatures with a violin mind and we like nothing better than being distracted to work. Our mind is constantly looking forward to something more enjoyable than what we do now, so it's important to set up the obstacles.
Tell your family, friends, and workbooks that they are under no circumstances to bother you while you are working on your project. Turn off the phone, do not watch email. Stay away from the TV and newspapers. Work in a quiet place where a small backdrop is and there you do not hear other people. If this is not possible, use the headset and listen to soothing music while you work. Train your brain to adjust noise and focus on what you are doing.
Tip # 3. Do it, do it, do it, until it's done. This is the most important rule of all. Once you have raised your stakes and banned all interruptions, you must take consistent, thoughtful and alert action. Have all you need to handle, start once you've said you'd like to proceed and make a full and complete decision until your task is done.
Think of yourself as a very efficient, well-maintained machine that was designed to execute exactly this task. Tell you that no other engine has ever experienced what was so well positioned for this job. Revel in your abilities, use your facility and make your decision.
If you follow these three principles, what you put easier will be done, finish faster and give you more satisfaction. Try the next time you need to get something important.
