How to Stay Focused

Staying focused is something I had been struggling with in the recent past, now that I’m back doing everything I love I thought of sharing a few pointers. Anyone else in a similar situation could take the right direction again. Luckily, this post won’t take as long as my previous one 😬.

  • Keep a clear head: You need to fathom what is it that you want the rest will work its way in later.
  • List your goals: Make sure you jot down and take notes whenever necessary. Keep them at a place where you can see them everyday.
  • Set a timeline: Try to figure out how much you want to achieve within a day, a week and a month. Start working on it accordingly.
  • No Multi tasking: It might sound strange to few, but multitasking actually reduces the efficiency of any of your activities at a given point in time.
  • Add a few simple rules: Follow successful icons, and I don’t mean just famous people. It could be your own parents. Try cultivating the habits that got them so far.

  • Avoid too much caffeine: You don’t want to be restless at night or fidgety during the day.
  • Cut distractions: Figure out everything that wastes your time and eliminate it completely if possible.
  • Spend time with yourself: Its good to sometimes be with yourself and let your thoughts sink in.
  • Sleep well: Sleep plays a crucial role in your productivity during the day, so make sure you get an ample amount of it.

  • Make friends with similar goals: Its nice to have company of like-minded people. You get to learn more from each other’s experiences.
  • Stay positive: Keeping the right frame of mind is very important, and also β€œknow” that its ok if it takes a little longer to get where you want to be.
  • Compete only with yourself: At any point of time, you simply want to be a better version of yourself so stop comparing yourself with others.
  • Don’t loose hope: Whatever it is you want might seem impossible to achieve at some point, just don’t loose hope, keep calm and find your way out.

    Dear Sudha,
    The art of Focus is to learn to Ignore! (When focusing on one point, one must ignore everything else.) ☺️
    But your points are worth noting too 😊! 😊 πŸ‘ πŸ‘Œ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘
