Focus

Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus. Alexander Graham Bell

Every year l take a word to sum up how I am going to approach things for the year.

This years word is “Focus”.

I’ve given up on time management. This year my goal is focus management. I’ve realised that I can not mange time, all I can do is manage what I do in each moment of the day. So this year I have been exploring how I can manage to focus all my attention on the task in hand.

Things to think about:

1.How do you decide what to focus on?
2.How do you keep focus when there are so many things vying for your attention?
3.How do you maintain focus in the face of interruptions?
4.How do you switch focus to the next task without carrying over thoughts about the last one?

The hardest part of focusing, in my opinion, is how to forget about past tasks. Oftentimes, I find myself working on a new task then I suddenly remember another task where I may have missed something. Then I spend some amount of that time looking for things related to that previous task only to find out that there was nothing wrong with it.
