I’ve targeted a couple of the points made in a relevant article 1 to help us win when it comes to increasing our focus.
Is your work environment set up to help you work productively?
Perhaps you’ve sussed that for you, the temperature, ergonomic balance (eg screen tipped on a 45 degree angle), level of tidiness, air and light quality, plus how noisy it is, each need to be about right. Maybe you work best at your local coffee shop on your laptop!
Next up – what’s your ideal routine?
For five and a half years, Chris and I were traveling and working remotely. I discovered that I definitely need to have a routine when it comes to working efficiently, otherwise I’d constantly be distracting myself down multiple rabbit holes!
For me this means getting up early, exercising to help my body and brain engage, hydrating, and realising that mornings are my efficient times.
Third is – get rid of those alerts that can draw us off into distraction-oblivion. One of my mentors, Darren Hardy, recommended that I remove all of them, and I’ve never looked back.
Sure – these might be steps that have helped others, however – what about you?…
…what works best for you when it comes to getting consistent results?
