Tip of the Day: Ways to Stay Focused

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAComing from the Carnival celebrations, one may feel tired and not in a frame of mind to work, however we need to shake out the sleepiness and get focused at the tasks ahead.

One of the best ways to stay focused and on task is to have a list of specific things that you need to do each day, so you keep track of what needs to be done and what you have to do.

Eliminate the easy tasks from your ‘To-Do List First’ then focus on the more difficult tasks.

Each day will have a few significant tasks that will take up most of the day, and a few smaller tasks that can be done in a matter of a few minutes.

If you overload your to-do list, you will be stressed out all day and you probably will not do your best quality work because you will be feeling rushed.

Multi-tasking is one of those things that most of us have been programmed to do, and it is often considered to be a great skill, however t problem is that, when you are multi-tasking you are not focusing on any one thing, and your work will typically suffer in all areas.

Rather than trying to do several things at once, focus on one thing at a time and move through your to-do list by checking things off individually.
