“You have brains in your head; you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose,” said Dr. Seuss. Whenever you are pursuing your dream and passion, you’re motivated to make sure it gets accomplished. “Any goal or dream takes an immense amount of focus to continue. However, there are moments where individuals can lose that focus because too much is happening at one time. This is counter-productive on the route to your dreams,” says Danielle Hay, Managing Director of Haywire Inc. At Haywire Inc., we believe in using every tool to help you focus and maintain it. We implement strategies to help our representatives keep a strong focus so that they succeed. “In the business field, it’s important not to let anything keep you away from the target,” mentions Danielle Hay of Marketing Buzz Promotions. Throughout different areas and industries, you will encounter individuals that are so overwhelmed they lack focus. The first thing to remember is that you are human. Not a machine, it’s okay to feel worn out.
Studies show that performing more than two tasks at a time leads to inconsistency and no quality. It’s not about how much you do, but how well you do it. This is the number 1 cause of why people lose focus towards their goals. Along with an emphasis on a few things at a time, other tools and techniques can help you gain your focus and stay keen on it as well. Use an app or outlet to manage settings. Most times these tools are there for your convenience. You allow what you let in and establish a zone where you can time manage everything. For example, allow work calls and emails until 6-7pm during the evening, after that silence it. Relax and make time for yourself, by recharging you’ll be able to focus and accomplish more with a fresh mind.
Use a calendar. Jotting events and to-do lists in your calendar can help provide accuracy and clarity. This also helps ensure proper focus. “Traditionally you might believe that taking a break to gain clarity is something that isn’t allowed because it’s a waste of time. However, it’s important because not only does it help get clarity but it establishes focus,” says Danielle Hay of Haywire Inc. When you set and agree to limits on your time, you will commit and ensure yourself more thoroughly.
