How to Stay Focused - 3 Steps

How do you stay focused?
Answering this question is perhaps the most important critical thing you will ever do in your life time.

I believe It should be absolute priority for you to learn to take back your focus in life for you to get more distinct and more clear about what your focus really is.

What if;
You don't finally get your focus in check,
If you keep wandering around distracted,
If you keep looking at every new thing that pops up,
If you keep trying every single new opportunity,
If you keep saying yes to everything,
If you keep listening to everybody's complaints.

At some point you'll lose one day you'll wake up and say 
I don't feel like I've accomplished what's meaningful to me,
I don't feel like I have connection with my family or my friends.

Remember Your focus is driving everything in your life you got to get it back.

Here is A three Steps Checklist to get your focus back,

1. Make Fewer Decisions:

The first thing that I need you to know in order to get your focus back is ‘to realize that you need to make fewer decisions’

As we know from neuroscience and from productivity studies that
The more decisions that we actually make, the more our brain fatigue.

The more decisions that we make the more we utilize the glucose that's really fueling our willpower that's fueling our ability to make more decisions and higher quality decisions.

The more decisions that you tend to make the less effective you're going to be over the long term because you're gonna utilize your ability in your resources and your brains power will go out of the window so you want to minimize the number of decisions you are making.

Did You Ever Thought?

Why a genius like Steve jobs was in same dress (Black T-Shirt, Blue Jeans) almost every day. 
It’s not that he didn’t had more colored clothes , it all about Making Less Decisions and saving the decision making ability and to utilize it where it meant to be used.

How to Make Less Decision?

1.1 Stop Browsing: 
You know in overall, browsing completely wipes out your focus and your willpower even all these little things you're focusing on are utilizing all your brain's resources and when you stop browsing and you go back to focusing on something you wanted to focus.

When you aren’t focused you start multitasking and you are doing lots of things but when your work isn't really focused nothing gets accomplished, and as a result your brain is fatigued.

Did you ever thought?
What happens your brain when you find yourself sitting with a bag of potato chips and you have the remote control and you're just flipping randomly through things on TV

It's easier to become distracted, the more distracted you are, the more you aren't focusing on one thing at a time respectively the more problem you're going to have later on to complete one thing at a time.

So here's this simple solution if you missed it till now it’s “stop browsing” 
-All those tweets that you're reading,
-All those news feeds that you're reading,
- Everything like TV, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Google, YouTube etc.

Every time you look at them your mind has to make a decision 
Do I need to pay attention or I don’t need to pay attention

And that decision is costing you focal power and resources.

If you're constantly fatiguing your brain by focusing on a million things, you'll never get your focus power back, so stop making so many decisions, JUST stop browsing.

If you're looking for something, do them intentional , Search for that one thing, find it and you're out.

Stop clicking on all the blue links, stop swiping all the apps and all the pictures and Only Do The Things That Are Gonna Move You Forward.

2. Must Define Your Mission:
You need to have a mission that what you're doing today.
You need to have an intention for what your next task is going to be.
You should figure out what is it you desire in life and figure out the steps to get there and start working a plan to get there and minimizing everything else.

For Example:
If you're somebody who wants to add value and make a difference in the world so anytime someone asks you to do something and you say yeah let me help you but that might not have anything to do with the quality of life or the objective or the thing that you're trying to achieve or the service you're really intending to offer.

Getting very clear on the mission and working the plan everything else gets a NO until you reach that mission or until you're significantly on your way that you have free resources to be able to focus elsewhere.

And if you don't have one for this day
If you didn't have a drive,
a mission, a checklist, a goal sheet, a time management tool,
a written down statement about what you were going to accomplish today, then there is going to be  no proactivity towards the mission I Guess.

Here's another thing:
Focus goes out of the window when we don't have progress. 
If we're not progressing towards something our focus goes out of the window.

If you want to get more focus in your life, get more progress as you progress the more you start to get excited, you start to pay attention to things that are working , things that are moving you forward and you start to find more focus in your life.

Last idea to get your focus back, it's so very very very very simple and I hope that you will practice it, I hope you will study it, I hope you will work it over and over and over and over again.  

Once you have that mission or goal then your job is to try this just for a little while, I know it's going to be uncomfortable and I know you're going to hate the idea But You must implement it if you want to stay focused. 

3) Its Saying a “NO”.

I just want you to say a NO to everything immediately from NOW till………..FOREVER.

I know this goes against the grain as a lot of people say

Saying No means No life and saying yes is life.

But I want you to say no just at FIRST 
Just so you can check it against your mission,
I don't want you to say yes or commit to any projects immediately anymore.

That's what people do, I do want you to commit but just give yourself some time like a couple hours break or a night then make the decision the next day.

If someone asked you to do something, I just say just SAY a NO FIRST, then say to yourself that I'm going to evaluate it, I'm going to put some thought to this to see that should I focus on this right now YES or NO.

Remember if you're going focus on something then you must ask yourself that: Is it good or bad for me? Is it Right or wrong for me? You must make sure that it's going to leave to some kind of result in related to your mission/goal, and you can put your true passion, your true love and your true spirit into it otherwise it's got to get a no.

Now your job is to get back to a very simple level of life,
Focus only on one or two things at a time and you must not be allowing distractions to suck you in.

Enjoy Saying No To Those That:
Don’t move you towards your goal every single day, moment by moment, day by day.

Say A Yes to Those Things That:
Truly engage you, truly energize you and bring enthusiasm into your life.

If you can keep that type of focal power and intention then you'll start to experience what we call the charged life.
