Are you taking focused action on what you need to do to make your passion and purpose-filled dreams come true?
Do you ever feel as if you’ve lost a bit of your focus? It happens to all of us.
Recently, I’ve been physically and mentally pulled in so many different directions. I’m working a full-time job, shopping for first my residential property, gearing up to acquire my first profitable online business, and so on.
There’s so many wonderful things to do and focus on, that a slight shift in the wrong direction can leave us feeling unfocused.
Fortunately, there are also several ways to find your focus and get back on track.
Here are 9 ways to find your focus:
1⃣ Declutter. This applies to your work space as well as your mind. Eliminate anything that negatively consumes your time.
2⃣ Take a break. Sometimes all we need is some time away from what we’re doing to re-connect with our focus. Getting away from everything can help you remember what’s most important.
3⃣ Change your environment. Whether it’s simply stepping outside or traveling to distant lands, change up your scenery and the energy of your surroundings.
4⃣ Take a step back and look at the “big picture”. We can get so focused on the details that we forget why we’re doing all this in the first place. You can’t see the picture if you’re standing inside the frame.
5⃣ Limit your distractions. Enough said.
6⃣ Schedule focused time. Set aside blocks of time for you to direct your attention on specific actions. Mark this time on your calendar to make it real.
7⃣ Set timelines. Without a set date that you’re committed to keep, procrastination will play games with you and your focus.
8⃣ Get up and start moving! You can change your mental state by changing your physical state. There is a positive relationship between increased exercise and focus/productivity.
9⃣ Get back to basics. Beware of overcomplicating things when your focus is right in front of you. Adjust accordingly and get back to what you do best.
Finding your focus can be a challenge at first, but in due time you will find that it’s all in your mind 😉
