What's Your Best Method to Stay Focused?

73 replies
How do you stay focused?

It's a pretty basic question, so here's my answer.

To stay focused I actually pushed my start menu (i'm on a windows machine) to the right side of the screen. This way I am not constantly reminded of other pages and I am more inclined to actually do something.

Ontop of that I also only have 1 instant messaging service (Skype) that I use currently. And the only people on that account are important business partners or very important friends. To talk with actual friends, I actually prefer to use email versus social networks like Facebook or Twitter, this way I'm not constantly checking them.

Anyways, those are my main methods, what are yours?

    It depends on how you value your time . There is nobody breathing down your next to get the work done . It is easy to mess around clicking on your clicking away on your computer and not do any work

    There is no boss looking over your shoulder making sure you get your work done but if you value your time you set an time sheet where you schedule agenda which you would stick to and keep yourself accountable to make sure you get the work completed and mostly importantly get paid . You are an entrepreneur , you only get paid for results

    There are days that things will come up and stop you from keep your time schedule . they should rare and not the norm .Here is an example

    6- 7 a.m- Morning Exercise
    7- 8 a.m- Product Creation
    8- 9 a.m-Product Creation
    9- 10 a.m- Break/ Breakfast
    10-11a.m- Make a helpful video and Show some love to list
    11-12 noon - Forum Marketing
    1.00-2.00p.m- Lunch
    2.00-3.00p.m-Forum Marketing
    3.00-4.00 p.m- Product Creation
    4.00- 5.00p.m- Search Inspiring Success Stories
    5.00-6.00p.m- More Product Creation

    You get the point ...

    Usually a good planning of daily activities allow me to stay focused since my goal is to get them all done, the more I have them listed the more I want to get them all done. It is a very simple thing to do, only takes me 30 minutes maximum to plan the following days activities.

      I'm a daily planner as well but when I really need to stay focused for a specific task, there are a few things I can do;

      1) schedule it for first thing in the morning when my mind is still clear
      2) go to another room so I don't have to be near my computer (if I don't need it for that task)
      3) take my computer with me to the library where the wifi is lousy (if I still need the computer)

      These tend to work for me

    I stayed focus by convincing myself that I need to work hard in order to attain my goal. And when I turn on my computer my background srceen has picture of my dream car So it reminds me to do the task that i really need to do. And also sometimes when you saw a good outcome to your work it become your addiction/challenge to work hard to get more revenue. So that's how I stayed focus!

    • I think of work in terms of a series of short "sprints" rather than one long "marathon". I learned this observing poker dealers in casinos. To keep them fresh, the casinos give dealers 50 minute to 1 hour sessions then they get 20 minute breaks after every session, sort of like boxers with their 3 minute rounds and 1 minute rests.

      The mind can't really focus for long periods. I take a hint from the casinos. They know what they're doing. I work in 40 minute sprints followed by 20 minute stretching/youtube time wasting rest periods.

    loving the responses.

    I can say that I like schedules, but they have to be limited. I used to go by a daily schedule, but now I let things flow as they come and I find that I actually tend to find things a lot easier.

    You never know when something is going to pop up. Maybe you'll have a brilliant idea that could make something even more successful. If you do, thrive on it and go for it. Don't stop and think about it. You can always change it later

    I used to plan things ahead for the day, trying to keep the schedule and it DID work, however, lately it just happens, unfortunately, that the closer the deadline is the more focused I get... strange, huh?

    My method for staying focused comes from my trained profession before IM. I worked in financial analysis, which requires a great deal of concentration and attention to detail. I learned early on the consequences of "letting things fall through the cracks".

    So, I work like that on my IM projects...once I get all the distractions out of the way.

    set goals. have goals for the year, goals for the month, goals for the week, and goals for the day.

    i write my goals for day the night before. When I wake up i read them. I write my goals for the week on sunday night and I read i read them before I write my goals each night. I write my goals for the month the first sunday of every month.. and i read them each sunday before i write my goals for the week. ....... YOU GET THE POINT.


    having goals is what keeps you going. when you have goals you have something to do. when you have something you want to do its easy to stay focused.

    (make a note of where it says "something you want to do" )

    Having goals starts should starts with a burning desire. if a burning desire does not get you into action each day than it's not a burning desire.. its more like a wish.


    another thing is to watch what you eat and drink. you may be surprised to know that what you eat and drink will have a dramatic affect on your focus. they have done studies and found they can cure children with adhd by putting them on a highly nutritious diet of water rich foods (fruits, veggies, sprouts). they also put them on a regular routine of drinking pure water. (tap water does not cut it)

      Like many have already stated, I start out each day by writing down a list of the tasks that I will get done that day.

      I recently started to do something that really keeps me on task when it comes to writing. For most of my writing activities I go outside to a comfortable chair with nothing but pen and paper in hand. When I write on my PC, I find that it is easier for me to become distracted.

      There's a lot of good tips in this thread.

      I recently started using the Pomodoro technique, which is a time management system where you work for 25 minutes, then take a 5 minute break, then work for 25 minutes, then another break, etc. Every two hours you take a longer break. A timer is required to keep your work exactly to 25 minutes at a time.

      After a few weeks I've noticed that my focus has improved dramatically while I'm working on tasks. Any little distraction or interruption that pops is quickly dealt with by writing it down on a sheet of paper, then going right back to focusing on the task at hand. I can then take care of whatever it was that distracted me during the break or later in the day.

    Having a specific plan for executing your plans in batches instead of hoping from one type of task to another. Planning time, connecting time (building relationships etc) and execution time. It also helps to have a recreational life to give your mind and body a chance to just wander.

    I usually create hourly goals in order to meet deadlines and balance my responsibilities at home at the same time. Many times I block out friends form my IM list so that they would not be able to bother me during work times.

    It's always a challenge to be stay focused when you have a lot of family and home issues to care about. But my family has understood that even if I am just at home, I have goals to meet.

      I think of an idealised description of what I want, something which will inspire me and help create that all important mental picture of my target. This is called a 'vision statement' and I recommend that you should have one for your whole life.

      It's generally advised that the vision statement you develop should be created while constantly having the best possible outcome in your mind. In fact you might wish to think of something even better than the theoretical best possible outcome.

      Always remember that you must use the present tense in your vision statements. Try to write it just as if you were writing a report on what you actually see, hear, think, feel and etc. Imagine your ideal result' has come to you and you're writing about it.

      Try to make your vision statement describe what you'd feel when your goal has been accomplished. Include all the emotional gifts this would give you and try to filter them into your statement to give it more passion and make it more appealing, inspiring and energizing.

      The more information your statements include the more powerful they will be, include all your senses. Think about it, what colors, sounds, shapes, smells and textures would be connected? Does your vision include the smell of expensive leather and smooth silk sheets? Try to put everything you can into your statements. I have done it even on the bus...daydreaming and smiling...I get home, light a candle and start stating all the things I say "Yes!" to. This helps me stay focused on all of the positive things I want in my life.

    I create goals and then break them into small steps throughout the day, then I divide a planning time to which I stick to so that I can focus on each one, after each one is done or gets to a certain time I take a break. I also turn any instant messaging service's such as WLM or Facebook, etc off, and listen to some music as it motivates me to keep going.

      I'm working on a logo right now, it's coming along nicely, but I am tempted to browse the net, jump to finishing my book, jump to posting on my blog, etc., etc., etc.

      However, I stay focused by scheduling my activities in my calendar, prioritizing them, reflecting in my daily journal and setting deadlines for the certain activities scheduled.

      I pretty much make my deadlines and as long as I stay self-observant, I stay focused (90% of the time! lol)

    I read today that there are 6 Steps to freeing yourself from the faulty mental programs that stand in the way of your dreams come true.

    Step 1: Identify the limiting beliefs that are holding you back

    Step 2:
    Create new empowering replacement beliefs

    Step 3 Clear the limiting belief file from your subconscious mind

    Step 4 Release the 'emotional glue' that surrounds and compounds the limiting belief

    Step 5 Install your new positive replacement belief

    Step 6 Strengthen your new beliefs in everyday life.

    When you clear your beliefs at a subconscious level you ensure real, lasting change.

    Your beliefs are vital for manifesting your dreams...make sure the ones you hold are aligned to your visions and dreams and the magnificent truth of who you are!

    Set yourself free to soar, to shine, to be all that you are and all that you can be!

      One way to stay focused is do one thing a day that takes you closer to your major goals.

      Plus, always remember to judge everything you do by whether it takes you closer or farther away from your major goals.

        When blogging, I just write it first on OpenOffice (while my internet access is turned off), then when it's internet time, I just copy paste what I've written. I agree that there so many distractions, I don't resist, I just remove the resistance so I can work smoothly.

        When not blogging and I open the computer and internet, I think first so that I would know clearly what will I do, not just some mindless browsing, but with clear defined objectives, I do my tasks and just doing them.

        I am doing this for two weeks now and the results are not that impressive but the i can really sense the improvement.

    This is a great question. What I do to stay focused is write down on a notepad what I'm going to do on the computer that day so that way I don't get distracted. I read a book called "Succeed, How we can achieve our goals" and it talked about this thing called "the self control muscle" and the more you try to discipline yourself, the stronger it gets. I can feel it developing and it definitely keeps me from having a whole bunch of tabs open on my computer.

  • I love this thread. For me focussing is very difficult. But I found ways to improve it. I make to do lists and just work them down. If I can't finish today, I work on it tomorrow again.

    I'm horrible at staying focused on one thing for long periods of time. Just one more reason that I do not hold a "regular job" I couldn't possibly go back to 8+ hour work days!

    What I have been using lately that is helping (it's still a work in progress) is using the pomodoro technique. Sometimes having a timer ticking down is really motivating to stay off the social networks and out my email. I also now only check my email at certain times of the day instead of having instant email alerts.

    Eliminating as many distractions as I can has meant more than just keeping off Facebook. Sometimes things that you think of as essential business functions are really distractions. Instant email alerts are mostly an unnecessary distraction.

    Preparing a checklist of what-to-dos for the day can also help you stay in focus. It somehow gives you direction.

    Great advice. To help me I set goals that are hard to achieve so that I have to be constantly working on them to get done. This motivates me to do more work and be more efficient with my time.

    I schedule my day out the night before and try to stick as closely to that schedule as possible. It allows me to set daily goals and game plan what things need my immediate attention.

    do one thing at a time and live by my word. If I say it, I do it. That way I can trust myself when it comes to the big stuff.

    review your short term goals daily and review your long term goals at the end of your workday. This will keep you focused on whats important. Read motivational and inspirational quotes before you start your day.

    Yep, very common thing to stay focused is organize your activities for the day.

    Never let yourself get tempted to some other factors around as much as possible.
