I have a really hard time focusing at work. I’ve been trying to figure it out for years. Besides the obvious interruptions like texts, social media and dreaming of things I’d rather be doing, I’ve also noticed that I have a problem just starting or keeping on task.
I suspect part of this is that I see the whole picture and try to tackle everything at once. I bounce between things when I feel stuck and end up getting lost and not working efficiently.
So today I randomly had an idea… What if I set mini goals for my day? Not just a list of 4 things to get done but one thing to do every 2 hours.
It may help create focus in short spurts, give me a sense that all my bases are covered, and help me figure out what I can get done in a day.
Wish me luck.
