Focus is difficult.
There are so many distractions.
Texts to answer.
And uncommissioned assignments.
Books to read.
Homework to do.
As my job (and life) responsibilities increase, I realize how important the discipline of focus is.
Without it, I spin circles.
With focus, I accomplish.
I’ve heard the advice to create a “not to do” list. I keep this quote around just in case I forget.
“The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.” William James
I also create priorities lists (order the most important tasks).
But at the end of the day, focus is a choice and a discipline. I can use all the tools, all the reminders I want to use, but in the end, I either choose to focus on priorities…or not.
How do you maintain focus throughout the day or week?
