4 Ways to Improve Your Focus for Great results!

Our minds are easily wavered and affected and it becomes extremely hard to realign your focus with goals at job task. Today we are showing you 4 ways to improve your focus at work and how you can possibly discard activity that can divert your attention. Now these tips can be subjective but it may be effective for you!

1. Work in chunks
It’s a scientific fact that our brains can only be attentive on a limited amount of information for a limited amount of time. Making sure the appropriate information in mind is the one that lines up with our duties at work is where the difficulty is. To lighten the load on your brain, it is better to segment your work into small manageable pieces.
The idea is you do not want to spend an entire day working on one task non-stop. Breaking it up allows your brain to ‘breathe’ and it will reward you later with effective work. So work in small portions and in the middle you may choose to go and get a glass of water or do something as a small break.

2. Reward yourself for your determination
It’s not really a bad thing to visit sites like Facebook, Watsup, or Twitter to get your social updates, but it’s important to not spend huge amounts of time on them, especially when your work is not complete. What I tend to do is create a set of tasks that I need to complete before I can visit any of those sites or leave my desk. I will work awhile, complete a task, then reward myself with some time catching up with a friend. This strategy relies on sheer perseverance and strong will. If you can’t stick to goals that you set try another one of these methods.

3. Go Incognito
If all else fails and you just can’t seem to get away from the Facebook and pesky co-worker emails, you have to hide yourself. Go invisible on the status of your social media, set the away message to “BUSY, DON’T BOTHER ME”.
And for those workers who love to stop by your desk, throw on those head phones so they don’t feel inclined to spark up a conversation. I often have to hide from being annoyed from others. It seems the moment one person starts talking to me that the floods of people come. I’ve learned to never put myself in conversational positions while trying to be focused or make sure that I’m in control if I am in those situations.

4. Be interested/passionate about your work.
Finally the best way to be productive is to truly enjoy and be passionate about what your working on. We go to great lengths and hours of work for things that interest us. Yet we lose focus instantaneously if what we are doing is not important. It might take some time finding interest in the work you do, you might have to just think about the big picture or maybe focus on achieving your great results as a means to retain your relevance.
