Optimizing Your Focus
If doing a task takes you four times as long as somebody else, it might be a simple lack of focus. Find what works for you and make it happen. For example, if you are motivated by a sales goal then put pictures of what you will purchase with the money around your office.
If you are motivated by accomplishing tasks than use a pie chart to illustrate the work that needs to be done. Then, at set intervals erase pieces of the pie until it is completely empty.
It might just be a matter of distractions. Don’t play music while you work. Turn the ringer off the phones. Don’t sit in front a window if you are distracted by the cars going by.
Working smarter not harder is about peak performance and peak focus. When you are working at your peak you get more done in less time. Leaving you time to do more of what you love.
