Do you even recall a period when you had a sustained attention span that lasted more than a few minutes? Was there a time when you could glide through work without being sidetracked, and take hours to do something that would now take you days to complete? Realistically, you probably recall a period when things were like that - but it was most likely before cellphones were developed and before Facebook was created. To put it another way, it's been a while. The purpose of this document is to assist you in this process. The capacity to focus may be improved by the use of a few basic concepts and simple methods. This will also help you to be more creative as a result. This set of notes will explain why setting an hourly alarm may be beneficial for your concentration, how daydreaming might aid in planning, and what scatterfocus is.
When it comes to contemporary living, it may often seem as if there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done that we want to accomplish. Ultimately, however, if we are honest with ourselves, we will see that the culprit is not just the contemporary world, but also ourselves. We have a tendency to overcommit ourselves and get overworked. We then spend the remainder of our day hooked to social media, television, and email after we've finished being busy! The answer, it would seem, is straightforward: we must quit being busier than we need to be and avoid the distractions that are sapping our energy and stealing our time. Of course, saying these things is far simpler than really doing them. Identifying the root reasons of busyness and distraction will be critical to having a realistic chance at completing them successfully. After that, we must put in place a plan to deal with them. We'll need some actual strategies in order to put that plan into action.
