Our brain can only work on one thing at a time. If you’re working on 3-4 projects your brain has to start over every time you jump to another project.
I want you to try something different today. Pick one thing to work on, yes, one. Preferably the most important task of the day and if you have trouble picking ask yourself ‘what will put me closest to the money?’ That makes it really easy to pick the project.
Now you need a Focus Stone. When I give a presentation every attendee gets a pretty stone that I call the Focus Stone. This stone is your reminder to stay focused on one thing and one thing alone until completion. Every time you feel yourself drawn to jump to something else look at your Focus Stone and stay on task.
What are you going to use for your Focus Stone? Perhaps it’s a favorite memento you have on your desk, or maybe you want to go out and find a beautiful stone. Decide now what you’re going to use.
