It's a wild world out there, and each day new fascinating distractions are added!
The world isn't going to slow down for any of us, so we're here to help YOU stay in your game, and keep flowing, no matter what chaos is happening!
In part 2 of The Midlife Reboot, we take you through a quick process about the things in your life that need to be done (at some point), and how to pick ONE that matters most and GET IT DONE. Can you do it without falling into distraction? We know you can!
Distractions, Meet Your Nemesis... FOCUS!
Distractions are like mischievous imps trying to sabotage your focus. But guess what? You're the superhero in this story, and it's time to unveil your secret weapon against these pesky foes:
Seems simple, right? But. OOOO SHINY! What's that over there? WAIT MY PHONE HAS DINGED AT ME, I MUST SEE WHAT IT NEEDS...
The Battle Plan: Destroy Distractions, See What Matters, Make a Plan
Picture this: You, laser-focused, ignoring all the other rabbits, dings, flashing lights cat videos and memes. Your to-do list is simplified and powerful. Sounds epic, right? You can focus, but like everything else, START SMALL.
The Art of Focus, even when you're VERY ADHD.
We heard that a large portion of GenX is undiadnosed ADD or ADHD. Seems right.
We don't let that diminish us, we us it as a superpower.
Here's ONE QUICK WIN for you.
Go turn off notifications for 1-3 apps that REALLY don't deserve your attention every 5 minutes.
If you're at your computer, close a bunch of unnecessary tabs, and clean up your desk for just 60 seconds. Embrace the tranquility of connecting with just one thing and finishing it. Just for a few moments, feel this.
You can go back to your chaos after this. We know how powerful of a pull it is. Your will to focus can grow even if you are a squirrel by nature.
Did you do it, or are you still reading?
The Pomodoro Technique: One way to hack your time into action.
Ever heard of the Pomodoro Technique? It was created in the late 80s by Francesco Cirillo. Basically, you set a timer to break your tasks into intervals.
During that time, you are laser focused on a task, then you take a short break. Then you do it again.
Repeat until complete.
Fun fact: Each interval is known as a pomodoro, from the Italian word for tomato, after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer Cirillo used as a university student. You can use your phone's times, do you know you have one of those? Lol...
The Power of No: Setting Boundaries with Distractions
