Focus is the center of interest or activity. It is very difficult for me at times to focus due to me having ADHD. The benefits of me being focused outweigh me being unfocused. So, I have to train myself to focus.
There is a big difference between being talented, having good habits and being skilled.
I train myself to focus by:
- Understanding why I need to do what I am doing
- Realizing the things that can distract me
- Knowing how long I need to give my attention to what I am doing
- Having a good reward for my focus
I pray that for the remaining days of April, focus is showered down on you.
I truly believe there are a lot of talented people in the world who never develop the skills to pay the bills because of a lack of focus.
Talent is things that you do well. Habits are things that you do well repeatedly without thought. Skills are things that you do well repeatedly without thought while under stress. And skills pay the bills. Skills also require training which is very different from practicing to build good habits.
Focus makes it easy for me to say no to people because I don’t have time to waste. Nobody has time to waste but we are most vulnerable to waste time when we are not focused.
- How do you define focus?
- What do you do to get focused?
- What is something that you are currently doing that is preventing you from becoming your best you?
