A Number of Great Ways To Focus

If you’re wondering how to focus, and want a step-by-step process, then look no further. This is an excerpt from GettingResults.com and lists a number of great ways to focus.

How To Focus Now. Ask yourself, what do you want out of this moment? Ask yourself, how can you get more XYZ out of this moment?

How To Focus for 20 Minute Intervals. Set a goal. Use a timer.

How To Focus for a Day. Identify three outcomes or wins that you want for the day. Set a mid-day checkpoint, and a checkpoint at the end of the day, to check your results.

How To Focus for a Week. On Mondays, identify three outcomes or wins that you want for the week. Set a time on Fridays, to review your results. Set a checkpoint mid-week to evaluate your progress. Review your three goals for the week each day.

How To Focus for Month. At the start of the month, identify three outcomes that you want for the month. On Mondays, review your three goals for the month. Each Friday, review your progress towards your three outcomes for the month. Set a checkpoint mid-month to re-evaluate your three outcomes for the month. Consider making your focus a 30 Day Improvement Sprint, where each day you invest a small amount of time or go for little wins that add up over the month.

How To Focus for a Year. Identify three wins for the year. Assign deadlines for your wins for the year to specific months on the calendar. Review your progress towards your wins each month. If your focus requires significant investment, then consider making one of your items a theme for a given month, and add extra focus to your goal for 30 days.

How To Focus for a Lifetime. Identify three wins that you want for your life. Periodically invest a month, such as a 30 Day Improvement Sprint, to focus on one of these achievements.

Setting a timer is a very effective way to focus on one task for a set period of time, particularly when you turn off all distractions and devote one hundred per cent of your attention to that task. Writing down your goals and action steps to reach them are a favourite too. There are a number of great ways to focus, and I guess it’s up to the individual to work out which method is best for them.
