Why growing your focus muscle is important for minimizing distractions

Follow Dave on LinkedIn

Distractions are everywhere, all the time. In a world full of continuous demands on our attention, how can you stay focused?

Simple: Grow your focus like you grow a muscle.

Try this exercise to improve:

  • Pick an activity to focus on.
  • Using a timer, set a limit you know you can hit—even five minutes works!
  • Remind yourself to stay focused until the timer goes off.
  • Next time, try to beat your own time.

Soon, you’ll be able to keep your attention on one task for longer periods of time, getting more done as a result!

What else helps you stay focused?

If you find your attention regularly drifts about, causing you to get behind at work, try my course, “Improving Your Focus.” You can take it on LinkedIn Learning by going to davecrenshaw.com/focus.
