The Word of the Week is Focus!

The Word of the Week is Focus!  In this video, Kirby discusses how you shouldn’t just rely on the multitasking to get your work done. We can all have lots on our plates at any given minute. I know I am always getting overwhelmed trying to get all of the required tasks done, not to mention the other responsibilities, I would prefer to finish. But doing them all at the same time takes longer and at the end of the day, you will have completed less. Take time to focus….try not to get overwhelmed. Put your tasks in order of priority and then start working on checking them off, one by one. The best way to do work is by focusing for an allotted time and then taking a short break. This allows your brain to rest and reset, as where multitasking is doing something completely different.  Multitasking is continually interrupting your brain when it is trying to focus, inhibiting it to form the same train of thought. You may have noticed that sometimes it might take you a few minutes to get into the groove of a particular task. This is normal; it can take a few minutes for our brains to switch completely to a task. Because of this can you imagine what your brain is doing when you multitask? Studies say that you end up getting less done. Oh and you can save yourself some frustration when only working on one project at a time. Yes, some days this might seem impossible when you’re struggling to balance everything on time. So try to do your best at keeping everything in sequence. Now go ahead……Buckle down and get focused! Want to keep current with our business tips?  Make sure to join our VIP List!  Our VIPs receive an email with the latest content…and other special offers as well.  Join here.
