This used to really be a hard thing for me to do. Just focus on one thing at a time.
Truth be told, I could either really dial down and crush something out if I wanted to or I would find myself jumping between multiple things and finding myself never finishing my original tasks.
It was very frustrating, and it is still something I happen to deal with today, but not nearly like I did in my younger years.
But the funny thing was I never even knew this was a problem, or would become a problem because I was young with no real responsibility.
I had trouble during my elementary school years and also during my high school years because I just didn’t apply myself. But when I did, I also would try and complete numerous amounts of work, and hours later I couldn’t come up with an answer as to how I didn’t complete the work I had intended to finish.
I was always jumping around, getting distracted, daydreaming and before I knew it I would find myself thinking or even doing something unrelated to what needed to be completed.
I actually find it funny because at times I still do this now. But I have taught myself certain rhythms and things to break those patterns.
And one of those is to just put one thing in front of me and finish it. I make a list of things needed to be completed just for the day and I go through them one by one.
Sometimes I allow myself to do two things at once but I tend to stick to one thing first.
There’s plenty of times I come across smaller tasks that need to be completed to ensure I complete the main thing I am working towards which is another reason why I don’t like to take on more than a number of things at once.
Multi-tasking just isn’t my strong suit. I’m OK at it, but ultimately it just creates chaos in my mind so I stay away from it if I can.
But staying focused on one thing I think would do a lot of people good.
If you find yourself struggling to complete tasks then maybe just taking one thing at a time is the best way for you to finish objectives.
You might not like the sound of that, as I used to think that I wouldn’t be able to complete everything I needed to get done unless I did multiple things at once.
But again, unless you are good at multi-tasking, you will actually slow yourself down this way. And I realized, at the rate, I finish a task, even though it may be one at a time, this is faster than me trying to do multiples at the same time.
and when I finish a task I get a sense and fulfillment of completion and makes me feel good which is why I stick to this method.so I thought I’d share the importance of focus. And if you're feeling stuck and don’t think you performing as best as you know you can, try slowing your thought process, and throw all your brainpower at one task.
both of the videos below of Sean Brawley and Sadhguru share how focus is important and how you can use it, in their own unique respective ways.
