I truly believe the key to focusing is getting organized!
Over the past few weeks I have really started to filter things out. From my closet, cupboards, emails, files, fridge… You name it i have sorted it, scrubbed it, and arranged it just so.
Let me tell you… It feels damn good!
I have been listening to a woman named Chalene Johnson! This woman has got it going on! You may remember her workout vids, or late night infomercials. This lady is the Jill of all trades these days. She said something that really spoke to me. In one of her videos she said if you spend a full hour focusing on just one thing…You will accomplish more in that hour, then you would in six hours of toggling between projects.
This slapped me right in the face! Talk about a wake up call!!!
No wonder things take me such a long time! I am the multi-tasking, toggle queen! I have some kind of Personal Development audio running at all times. I have so many browsers open half the time I forget what I was doing… I am running around doing laundry, dishes, and don’t forget the snacks.
SO I put myself to the test!
In order for me to be able to focus on one task at a time, I needed to have everything just so. So I have been cleaning like a maniac! Since getting myself organized I have really tapped into my laser focus! I am suddenly so much more productive! I feel accomplished, and much more clear! I had to make some rules for myself. During my power hour of productivity, NO PHONE! NO SNACKS! NO INTERRUPTIONS! This has been working out so great for me! I am still working on time slotting things into my day and sticking to it, but it is certainly coming along!
If you feel like you are running in circles during your busy day. STOP and take a look at what you are trying to accomplish all at once! Write a list of all the things you need to do, and prioritize them. Do maybe the top three, but make sure you only do one thing at a time! I promise you this will make you feel like you have so much more time left in your day!
What on earth will you do with all of that free time? Huh? Daydream about that! You’ll love it!
Love within, love around.
