Most of us would probably say we could focus better on our work. We have busy lives, a multitude of issues, challenges, decisions, and interactions on our minds at any given moment. Life is more complicated than it was a decade, three decades, five decades ago, and our bodies and minds are challenged to sustain optimal health in the face of the complexity, stress, and pace of activity.
Yet, when you find your attention wandering from the task at-hand, do you say to yourself, “Ah, yes. Here is a situation where my brain feels overwhelmed by the ridiculous amount of stimuli I’m throwing at it to assimilate.”
Probably not. More likely, you’re saying something like, “Focus! Focus! C’mon, self . . . get with it!”
And sometimes, we say things like this to ourselves: “I’m so spacey. I’m not committed enough. I’m not very smart/good at this. Maybe this job/task isn’t a good fit for me.”
It is no wonder we struggle to feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of some days. On average, we spend less than four minutes on a task before becoming distracted!
You simply need to understand which of the “four facets of focus” are stronger for you and which ones are not.
In this program, you will take a quick self-assessment to determine the ease or challenge you experience in each of the four facets.
Then, narrow in on techniques designed to help you with your personal trouble spots.
