Have you ever set a goal for a day ending up not accomplishing it?, then this is for you. Attention paves way for more ideas and more opportunities.The latest research is clear: the state of our attention determines the state of our lives. In today’s world, most people can’t focus because they have not learnt to focus and we don’t practice how to focus. So how do we harness our attention to focus?
Focus gives us foresight and far sight beyond what our ordinary eyes can see, in here you will get to see the relationship focus has with determination. A recent study pointed out the average adult spends about 1 hour 40 minutes every day on social media. Over 50 hours per month, 616 hours per year which means 128 days wasted every 5 years. Imagine if you replaced that wasted time with completely focused time, working on the person you would love to be in the next 5 years.
The opposite of focus is distraction. We are surrounded by distractions, whether we like them or not, it is up to us to disregard such distractions. If you want to make things great, shut out the distractions of the world and make your goal a priority. Steve Jobs once said ” people think focus means saying yes to what you’ve got to focus on, but that is not what it means at all, it means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that are there”. Focus is a skill, so we need to work on it to develop it.
Meditation is a popular technique for relaxation and stress relief that can significantly increase your ability to concentrate and focus.Meditation exercise allows you to focus your attention on an object, sound or some other stimulus rather than trying to achieve a clear mind. For many people, this can feel easier than trying to focus on nothing or keeping a clear mind without a specific focal point.
Focused meditation is something that everyone can do at home without an instructor or teacher. All you need is a few minutes of time, a quiet place, and something to focus on. To reap any lasting benefits ,daily practice is required.
