Focus on what you are doing at the moment


Mind blinkers

Focusing on the tasks we are doing is 50% of its successful completion. It is a simple advice, yet it is very difficult to follow as our attention is distracted not only by other people, but also by our off-topic thoughts. We can easily put a "do not disturb" sign on our door and turn off your phone, however, we can not put 'blinkers' on our mind to focus on a task for more than 20 minutes.

Get focused but don't get stuck

We need to develop a habit that will help us focus on what we are doing now. Very often we lose focus because of other tasks we have on our to do list. When we know we need to do the task by all means, we can set filter to display only the task that should be done now. So each time we see the list with one task we realize we can move forward only when we complete it. Of course if we get stuck it is better to take a break or move to another task as sitting there stuck will not bring you to a solution.

Action plan

  1. Start your to do list software
  2. Enter the "Name" or the "ID" of the task in the Filters panel
  3. Start doing the task
  4. Click on "Clear Filter" button only when you complete the task.
