The Habit of Focus
The habit of focus is an ongoing process. It is about regularly redefining what is important and saying NO to what is not important. Marvelous performance is the result of the cultivated and intentional habit of focus...
You should always be free to express your feelings and emotions. Before taking on a project think of whether or not you can do the job, and more importantly if you can do it in the time frame required. Can you meet the deadline? Always focus on your priorities and clear your mind before taking on too many projects.
Do you find you can’t meet deadlines? Have you ever listed out all of your priorities and then politely said NO to the less prioritized work? Remember, it’s not necessary to say yes all of the time and it’s not that difficult to say NO. You just need to realize that you can’t do the job. Saying NO will help you stay stress-free and not only successfully complete all your other more pertinent jobs, but complete them on time.
You should know that time is precious and in some cases, “time is money”. When some work is not contributing to your growth and is mostly a time-waster, you need to have the courage to say NO.
Make sure that you limit yourself from wasting your time and getting distracted due to unimportant tasks. Make your priorities clear and always develop boundaries so that you don’t get distracted! Staying away from distractions helps you concentrate and focus on your most important work.
This habit of focus will help you concentrate more on your work and complete your goals successfully by the deadline. Having strong work habits will help you increase your productivity and meet deadlines.
Initially your priority should be working on things that you passionately feel compelled to complete. If you are enthusiastic to do a job, then you are more compelled to accomplish it in order to achieve your goals. Employ the habit of focus to achieve those things that you passionately want to accomplish.
Initially when you start implementing the habit of focus, you might find it difficult to stick to it. But gradually you’ll find that life is more difficult without this important habit of focus. More and more distractions or interruptions will create more complications in your life and invite stress into your life. Focus on lessening the interruptions and increasing your work time and attention.
The habit of focus is and on going process and it doesn’t stop. There is no end to this procedure. Practice saying “no”, practice keeping distractions to a minimum, and always work toward being more focused.
Think of this analogy:
We don't buy eyeglasses because we want eyeglasses.
We buy eyeglasses because our "vision needs to be focused".
Most people can "get by" without the eyeglasses, but it will be more difficult.
You can "get by" without the Habit of Focus, but it will be more difficult.
So I'm perplexed, why do we "get" the eyeglasses, but we don't "get" the Habit of Focus?
Peace, love & gumbo!

Nothing but the truth. I had plenty of distractions before the new distractions surfaced. Thanks Marvin!!
