Trying to stay focused is a crucial skill involved with business time management. As busy as our high tech world has become, maintaining focus is becoming even more challenging. However, individuals who are successful, both professionally and personally, eventually learn the most important aspect of staying focused.
Most people, when starting a new task, can concentrate on the job initially. They are usually mentally fresh, and able to focus.
Unfortunately, they allow themselves to be distracted, Especially when they are mentally tired. These distractions are devastating, because once an individual is distracted, it takes a long time to regain focus.
The key to maintaining focus is to plan your work in “chunks” of time. Generally, these blocks of time range from 90 minutes to 3 hours depending on how much concentration is required.
Literally, put these time blocks in your day planner. While working during these times, you will allow no other activities to take place.
No personal phone calls, texting, reading email, surfing the Net etc.
At the same time that you schedule your blocks of work time, you also schedule your breaks. The key is to stick to the schedule until it becomes a habit and a regimen.
GOOD habits are as hard to break as bad habits. Generally it takes between 3-4 weeks to establish a habit.
Also, part of business time management is to plan your time away from work. Put that time on a calender, and TAKE THAT TIME OFF! By doing so, you will discover that when you return to work it will be MUCH easier to focus.
You will be mentally refreshed, and ready to focus!
