Find Time by Staying Focused

Staying focused no matter what distractions present themselves is a challenge.

So, last week in The Time Finder we talked a lot about the time management skills that you can use to manage change while staying focused.

Sudden Change and Focus

Then, this past weekend was a study in change here in New Hampshire.

Saturday saw high winds and torrential rains that brought down many of the remaining leaves.  Sunday dawned with an altered landscape, beautiful blue skies, and warm temperatures.  Today the skies remain a beautiful, crystalline blue, but the temperatures are expected to drop considerably.

Find Focus!As we enter a new week, I’d like to introduce a new time management topic:  Focus!

There are many facets to focus, and many, many ways that it can make or break our time management efforts.  Consider the following Chinese proverb, quoted in an article (Finding Time Strategies – Identify 3 Common Culprits Who Steal Your Focus) that I published some months ago:

If you chase two rabbits, both will escape.

Before you read the article, I suggest that you try this:  Take out a pen and paper and write down the three things that most often distract you from a task or are most likely to knock your plans off course.  As the week goes on, we’ll be exploring some of the things that can make focusing a challenge – and some great tools for dealing with them!
