I don’t need to remind all of us that there’s a pretty severe case of the crazies in this world we live in. There are status alerts, notifications, and desperate deadlines, often bombarding us at once and with little regard for the other parts of our lives. Here’s where focus comes in. If you can focus on one thing at a time, your life will change. You’ll get a ton more done, you’ll feel happier, and clarity will seem much more attainable. Here are my tricks for focusing:
– Keep a calendar: schedule everything and use the tricks that online calendars afford such as recurring events, which are especially good for birthdays.
– Make a to-do list: keep a short (4-6 items) of your priorities that are attainable in one day, as well as in one week.
– DONE list: track everything you’ve completed so you can look back and remember all the good things and manage future priorities. (especially good for work or school)
Good luck, you’re already a superstar!
