How to Focus to Get What You Want

How to Focus to Get What you Want

What you don’t do determines what you can do.

~ Tim Ferris

Focus can only occur when we have said yes to one option and no to all other options. In other words, elimination is a prerequisite for focus.

What can we do to focus on the things that matter and ignore the things that don’t?

Multitasking forces your brain to switch your focus back and forth very quickly from one task to another.

Most people don’t have trouble focusing. They have trouble deciding.  What I mean is that most healthy humans have a brain that is capable of focusing if we get distractions out of the way.

Steps for Focusing

  1. Eliminate distractions.
  2. Reduce multitasking
  3. Create a to-do list
  4. Practice mindfulness and meditation
  5. Get more sleep
  6. Choose to focus on the moment
  7. Take a short break
  8. Connect with nature
  9. Train your brain
  10. Be present
  11. Stare at a distant object for a few minutes
  12. Shift your attention – do something creative

The Pomodoro Method is a time-blocking technique that can help compartmentalize your tasks into manageable 25-minute intervals. To use the Pomodoro Method work for 25 minutes, taking five-minute breaks in between 25-minute intervals. After four of these intervals, you can take a longer 15-30 minute break.  This method of time blocking gives you the needed break in between work sessions to help you maintain focus longer and more sustainably.

Start by taking several deep breaths while really focusing on each and every breath. When you feel your mind naturally begin to wander, gently and uncritically guide your focus back to your deep breathing.
