3 Ways to Harness Your Focus and Be More Successful

Are you a person who struggles with focus? If so, you're not alone. The truth is, most people suffer from a lack of productivity and focus on a daily basis. Fortunately for us, there are ways to improve our mental capabilities and become more productive at work. So if you want to figure out how to harness your focus and be more successful in life, here are three tips that can help:


Schedule everything

Schedule your work, your breaks, and even the time you spend on social media. Schedule when you eat a meal, check Facebook or Instagram, go for a run, or do laundry.

You'll be amazed at how much more productive this makes you feel. It's like having an assistant that automatically knows what needs to be done before it happens! You can't get any more efficient than that!


Cut off all distractions

There are several things you can do to cut off all distractions and make sure that your body and mind are totally focused on the task at hand.

  • Turn off notifications, emails, texts, etc. during the time you have set aside for your work. If this is not possible (because it’s already a part of your job) then at least turn off any unnecessary notifications as well as unplugging from social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook).

  • Turn off your phone when it’s not in use so that it doesn't distract you with notifications or incoming calls/texts from friends or family members who don't understand how important this moment might be for you right now!

  • If possible close all applications running on your computer desktop like email clients and instant message programs (Skype). This will help prevent interruptions because these applications are often used for notifications about new messages arriving into their inboxes without any further action being required by oneself - which means they could become distracting over time if left open while trying to get something done...


Engage in the Pomodoro Technique.

One of the most common ways to increase productivity and improve focus is with the Pomodoro Technique. The gist is that you work for 25 minutes, then take a 5-minute break before starting another batch of work. This cycle continues until your workday is over, at which point you can enjoy time off without feeling guilty about it!

This technique has been shown to improve focus and reduce stress by eliminating distractions such as email and social media (which can be easily accessed during breaks). It also helps with prioritizing tasks because you'll find that some tasks are easier than others—you might even realize that some things aren't worth doing at all!


Conclusion

If you want to be more successful, it might be time to take a step back from your busy schedule and focus on your priorities. By following these three tips, you can learn how to harness your focus and be more productive—even when the world around you is pulling at your attention.
