Find Focus When You’re On-Line

Finding time by finding focus is a challenge that confronts us in many aspects of our lives – perhaps nowhere more than in our on-line work.  Time management skills are nowhere more necessary than in this cyber-frontier!

InternetTo say that the internet has changed how we live and interact, and even think, may be an understatement.  There is now so much information at our fingertips that it is possible to find answers to almost any question with a Google search or two.  The internet gives us a powerful tool for connecting and learning.  Facebook and Twitter and many other social networking sites offer opportunities to network.  New communities and businesses are springing up everywhere in cyberspace.  Meanwhile, powerful search engines chug away, mapping and knitting it all together with tags and keywords.

So where’s the challenge in all this richness, you ask?

Focus.  Finding focus is the challenge.

Think about your typical time at the computer.  How long do you stay on task before you veer off course?  It might be an e-mail that pops up.  It might be a question that comes to mind and that you decide you need to explore right then.  Maybe you decide you need to check the news or the stock market.

What takes you off course, and how long is it before you return to your original task? When you’re on the computer today, pay attention to your focus.  It’s important to get an idea of where you are, before you start to work on making a change.
