Staying focused is a challenge for many people as in the world we live in today, distractions from technology, people, and just the environment is inevitable. But in order to succeed in life, having focus over the things you do are very important. So, how do we stay focused in a society where people have the attention spam of 0.2 seconds? Here is a process that could eventually help you
1. Do creative work first.
Typically, we do mindless work first and build up to the toughest tasks that drains your energy and lowers your focus. An hour into doing your work, you've got a lot less capacity than at the beginning when you first started, and every decision we make tires the brain. In order to focus effectively, reverse the order: check off the tasks that require creativity or concentration first thing in the morning, and then move on to easier work, like deleting emails or scheduling meetings, later in the day.
2. Train your brain
When multitasking is the norm, your brain quickly adapts. You lose the ability to focus as distraction becomes a habit. We've trained our brains to be unfocused, and practicing concentration by turning off all distractions and committing your attention to a single task will help. Start small, maybe five minutes per day, and work up to larger chunks of time. If you find your mind wandering, just return to the task at hand.
Following these two tips will make it so staying focused will become a habit, which will make your life a lot easier.
