I allow myself the luxury of total concentration.
When I tune out distractions and live fully in the moment, I find that my tasks are completed quicker and with a higher quality of work, bringing me more success and leaving me with more time for other things.
To this end, I do everything possible to prevent distractions.
If office noise is bothering me, I put on headphones to muffle it or turn on music to drown it out.
I let my co-workers know what time I need to focus and when they can come to me for questions.
I avoid distractions by forwarding calls to voicemail and I check my email during certain hours, only.
I plan my work and work my plan.
Each day I take the time to plan the steps of each project and then I stick to my schedule.
I put easy tasks first so I can develop my focus quickly and build momentum as I work through the project.
Lastly, I organize my surroundings so there is no interruption in my workflow if I have to find necessary items or papers.
I accept that there are times when distractions are necessary.
When this happens, I take care of the situation promptly and get right back to my task.
As before, I tackle an easy item first to refocus and rebuild momentum.
Today, I challenge myself to focus with total concentration on one job at a time, leaving the multi-tasking to those who haven’t discovered that there is a better way.
