I embrace time wisely and focus on every moment to stay productive.
I make good use of my time. By remaining in the moment and focusing on the task at hand, I optimize my productivity.
To facilitate my ability to stay focused, I am organized in my daily life. I write out my schedule and keep it handy. Carrying it with me allows for time to regularly review and revise as needed.
At the beginning of each day, I make a list of things I need to remember. Then, because I am confident that important matters won’t be forgotten, I let go of thoughts that I would otherwise need to keep juggling. This helps me declutter my thoughts and focus my mind.
I also train my mind to turn off internal distractions or challenges I need to solve. I set a regular time to journal or resolve any conflicts.
When these stressors encroach on my work and life, I remind myself that I will address them during the time I have set aside and return my attention to the matter at hand.
I minimize outside distractions as well. While I have grown so accustomed to phone and email that I can hardly imagine life without them, I can turn them off from time to time for my own good! They are merely tools and should be treated as such.
I let my family, friends, and coworkers know when I will be available and then follow through.
By consistently being fully focused on my family when I promise them my attention, I know they will be willing to grant me the time and space I need to focus when I need to do so.
