Focus on 1 Item at Time

Posted on August 8, 2011 at 6:50 PM

(from Tara McGillicuddy's Newsletter 8/8/11)


My system to Focus on 1 Item at Time:


1 Stop and Take a Few Deep Breaths


2. Write Down the items I want or need to get done


3. Choose 1 Item to Focus on


4. Set a Timer for 5 Minutes


5. Work on the Item for 5 Minutes


6. Evaluate the my progress


7. Repeat Process



This works well for me. Depending on what I'm working on I may adjust my time block to 10 or 15 minutes. I usually start with a 5 minute block because I know my mind is able to focus that long. Evaluating my progress is VERY important and allows me to choose how much more time I want or need to focus on an item. It also allows me to choose to move on to a different item."
