Your Focus Formula: How to Successfully Stay on Task, Finish Projects and Achieve Your Goals
Diana Fitts, author
Do you have trouble staying on task and finishing projects to completion? You know you should be working on that report, but you can’t drag yourself away from Netflix and Facebook. You finally get around to cleaning up that spare room, but ten minutes in, you’re looking at old pictures you dug up and nothing else gets done. You need to get more serious about exercising, but you can’t seem to develop a regular routine to get it done. What’s lacking in all of these scenarios? FOCUS! We live in a world with nonstop distractions, so it’s no great surprise that we feel pulled in a million directions. How are we supposed to get through our ever-growing to-do lists when every time we turn around, there’s one more thing to get done or one more diversion to pull us away? Believe it or not, we all have the ability to focus. When we think of focused people, we tend to envision meditating monks and elite athletes and think, “I can’t be like that.” But the power to take back control of our time and productivity is available to all of us. We’ve just lost track of it in the middle of 24/7 internet access, the constant pinging of our phones, and lives that get busier every day. What if you could develop focus strategies that build on your own personal interests, tendencies, and dislikes? Not a one-size-fits-all recommendation, but a plan crafted specifically to help YOU take control of your focus and productivity. Your Focus Formula walks you through a variety of strategies for developing your focus and leads you through exercises to make them your own. Learn how to harness joy and disappointment, and how to brush aside the excuses keeping you from your goals. Channel your motivation and learn when distraction might actually be helpful. Your Focus Formula gives you the tools to create a focus lifestyle that works and puts you back in the driver’s seat of your life.
