How to focus on one thing at a time 3 Top Tips for Managers www.barbaranixon.co.uk

How to focus on one thing at a time www.barbaranixon.co.uk Finding time to focus during the week can be hard when you have a to-do list that's as long as your arm. What with all the daily tasks and interruptions it's often very difficult to get at least 5 minutes to focus on a specific task and give it some real thought. Before you know it you're staying late or starting early (just to get some peace and quiet) or at the very worst taking the work home with you.

How to focus on one thing at a time Tip #1 www.barbaranixon.co.uk  Decide what time of day is best for you  We all have a time of day where we're most awake and able to think most clearly. So, rather than fight against it and trying to focus at a time when you're not at your best, use the way your brain works best.

How to focus on one thing at a time Tip #2 www.barbaranixon.co.uk  Use your calendar  If you use outlook or another on-line calendar system block out some focus time each day. This can be as short as 30 minutes, but make sure that it's on public view so that if anyone is trying to book a meeting they know to avoid that time. It's also important that you're disciplined and you don't book anything else in either.

How to focus on one thing at a time Tip #3 www.barbaranixon.co.uk  Find a quiet place to work  This might be a tricky one, but I'll throw it in just in case.
