How do we achieve focus and simplify our day? One key part is to establish habits and systems that create time in your day to focus. We can learn from successful entrepreneurs who follow similar work practices and develop common habits that help lead them to success. No matter what type of business you’re in, you have business operations to manage, people to deal with, a brand to build, and a reputation to maintain. The habits and practices you bring to your business can either help you achieve success or cause you to needlessly struggle.
In my previous post Midweek Spark: Just Choose One! I outline 7 habit you can create that will increase your focus. Check out the post for more detail on each one.
- Turn off the alerts!
- Book an hour a day to work on your business!
- Book social media time!
- Take lunch!
- Set small goals that lead to big wins!
- Limit your networking time!
- Plan the small stuff!
The habit and system from the list above that I find makes the most difference in creating momentum and focus is #2: Booking an hour a day to work on your business. How? Check out my post The Power of an Hour for some suggestions.
The trick is to book the hour daily and work on one thing at a time! Yes only 1 thing! Image spending an hour focused on one important task without multitasking and distraction. Image the difference that will make for you. Image doing this 5 or 10 times a week! What will that do for your business?
