Focus Like a Laser

Today is all about building a fortress around your focus. Focus really boils down to 2 things: minimizing distractions and maximizing your creative energy.

First I want you to focus on illuminating distractions. Distractions cause your brain to decide which one to focus on. Even if you have a T.V. on in the background, your brain is processing what’s going on that television whether you’re consciously listening to it or not. And that takes away some brainpower. So I want you to protect your brain. Take the necessary steps to put your brain in the best possible environment for focus. That means turning your phone off, removing other sounds and noises, etc.

Your environment is a huge factor in your ability to focus. If you have children, my suggestion is to pick one very specific time either when the kids are with grandma or in the morning before they even wake up, when you can focus on what you want to focus on. If you have animals in your home, either separate yourself from them or wear noise-cancelling headphones to eliminate any noise they might make.2013-06-30_Chalene_226_Edit_a

The bottom line is I want you to take the necessary steps to create the optimal environment for you to focus. If you are someone who gets a lot of communication through out the day from loved ones, my suggestion is to create a generic text message that you send out every morning that explains between what times you are going to be off the grid; and that you are thankful for their support. This allows your friends to understand why you aren’t responding during those times, and also gives them the opportunity to support you.
