Concentrated- Via Jesse Turner MBA
Most of you reading this consider yourself- organized, disciplined, focused, goal-oriented, and ambitious- or maybe at least a one of these. But these adjectives do not imply results.
Many of us constantly think of an ideal. We have ‘goals on our mind. But often this is in a whimsical fashion. And with so many things vying for our attention, it is difficult to concentrate on the task at hand. We have multiple goals we are working towards simultaneously. Life goals, family goals, work goals… And then we have media- everywhere it can be conceivably input- it will be there to catch your attention.
A skill of the uber successful is the willful control and direction of thought. My quick tip today:
BLOCK OFF TIME- And I mean truly block off time. Completely immerse yourself into the task at hand. Ignore everything else. Emails, phone calls, people walking by your cubicle. Do not even look up. Focus on the objective. You have work to be done- Now do it. Embody the Nike spirit- “Just Do It” and nothing else. Let no thought enter your mind. Inevitably other minutia will encroach on your Block of task time. If you truly pay attention, you will notice how often your mind drifts and loses it concentration. But to get what you want in life- today, not tomorrow- to be most effective: CONCENTRATE.
