Finding focus in a world full of distractions
The Earth has been rotating at an almost constant speed for several billion years. Despite this, the concept of Time (years, months, hours and minutes) was created by the human species between 5,000 and 2,000 BC. Since then, society has been accelerating its way of life. The most direct consequence of this acceleration is the technological evolution, with a very sharp exponential increase after the industrial revolution.
Currently, it is hard to stay focused in the fast paced world we live in. Every day we deal with global news updated by the second, we are informed of everything that happens immediately, social networks bombard users with infinite content and we communicate to any part of the world at a speed never seen before. Everything happens very quickly and there is no patience to wait. With all the advantages that this technological evolution brings us, there is a challenge to be solved: how to focus in a world full of distractions?
If you don't have a good concentration strategy, it is difficult to maintain productivity levels. It is very desirable to interrupt work to update your email, see the whatsapp groups , open Twitter and Instagram or go get a coffee and get to the end of the day without having produced much.
Here are some tips to help you keep your focus on work and avoid being absorbed by distractions!
1 - Write down appointments
It may seem like a simple step, but it is the beginning of the concentration process. By writing down the tasks you have to do in a day or week, you are making a commitment and you will feel more obligation to comply with the list. No matter how small or insignificant, writes . If you don't even bother to fill in your schedule, you'll most likely end up procrastinating.
2 - Set realistic goals
When writing your goals, try to make them as realistic as possible. It's not about setting easy goals but achievable. The fact of not being able to complete the stipulated tasks can generate accumulated frustration and decrease your productivity. Good mental stability is essential to stay focused.
3 - Pauses
Working for hours at a time can become unproductive. Knowing when to stop and for how long is very important for a good work routine.
There are different methods of interval work and each person should choose the one that works best for them.
An example of one of these strategies is the Pomodoro technique. The goal is to keep focus, uninterrupted, for 25 minutes and take a break for 5 minutes. After 4 cycles, take a longer break of 30 minutes. You'll notice that during work periods, you have big spikes in concentration.
4 - Time for everything
Finally, try to make time for everything you like and need to do. If you start the day with anxiety, knowing that you don't have time, you will probably try to multitask at the same time - multitasking. This phenomenon divides your attention between the various things you are doing and is counterproductive. A good night's sleep is essential to having a productive and fulfilling day.
In the midst of routine, find leisure time to dedicate yourself to what you like - watch a movie, play sports or read! It is essential to save a few hours for these activities.When you feel that there is a time of day for each thing, it will be easier to focus on each one individually, without trying to rush into commitments!
