To Focus is to Concentrate
It can be challenging to concentrate on anything when you are constantly bombarded with various notifications, dings, and pings. These are just some of the common disturbances that you can face because everyone has a cell phone that chirps and chimes. Unfortunately, we’ve been trained to look at our phones every time we hear these chirps and dings to see what’s happening because we have what is known as fear of missing out.
Our cell phones are a collection of different noises and other alerts that bring your attention and focus to whatever is happeningÂ when you’re not there. There seems to be a ding and a ping forÂ everything, and they are all working to distract you. Just about everything that you are being alerted to on your phone is something that can probably wait, so you can continue to focus on the necessary tasks need to reach your goals.
The good thing about a cell phone though is that you can turn off all the notifications. You can silence all the dings, pings, and bings, until after you’ve finished focusing on your task. The important thing that you need to do is to continue to build the foundation of focus.
Practicing Your Focus
Focus takes a lot of energy. It isn’t something that you can find once and keep it for the rest of your life without practice. You have to practice your focus every day. Starting to practice your focus by developing a routine that triggers your mind to know that you are about to start work and get into some serious thinking. You can play a certain song or take a walk. Create a ritual that will help to calm your thoughts and allow you to concentrate on the task at hand.
Some people are unable to concentrate without slight noises contributing to their focus. They may need to have some sort of background noise in order to fully concentrate on their tasks. Others may have to work at a certain location if they want to have a strong focus.
Wherever you chose to work and whatever you might need to implement to help your concentration, it must be something that serves your concentration well. Without focus, you won’t be productive. Discipline, perseverance, and time management are things that are greatly enhanced by focus. For you to be effective, your concentration has to be on point. You will never produce anything of value if you don’t have focus.
Eventually, with enough practice, you’ll get to a point where you are so into what you’re doing that nothing will break your concentration and nothing will stop you. You’ll eventually find your zone and your work will constantly flow. This is the place you need to be in if you want to find success. This is when your best work shines.
