Sharpen your Focus

Blinders On

Even one distraction can bring your house of cards down, so be complete about this.

This means:
Clear your desk. If you need to, clear it all off into a pile on the floor to
deal with after you are done. No internet or computer programs open that are
unnecessary for your project… No noise… No phone…Imagine that you
are in a meeting and can’t be interrupted. No email or feed reader. Just you
and your project.

 

 

One Task at a Time

multitasking saps their organization of focus, energy, and productivity. ..Focus Like a Laser
Beam.

 

 

The Five More Rule

From now on, if you’re in the middle of a task and tempted to give up — just do FIVE MORE. Read
FIVE MORE pages. Finish FIVE MORE math problems. Work FIVE MORE minutes. Just
as athletes build physical stamina by pushing past the point of exhaustion, you
can build mental stamina by pushing past the point of frustration.
