There is a secret in focus? The focus is a rare commodity in today’s personal attention “market”. You, literally, bombarded by thousands if not millions of stimuli per minute, seeking for your attention. It is a modern art to know how to select and focus on what’s important for YOU!
The focus is an attribute, much in need today, in an information overload environment! Focus permits you to solely concentrate on the things to be done, ignoring all the other aspects of the environment.
Why making a selection is so difficult? And why are so difficult to narrow down your selections, to fewer, but better and efficient options? You have taught that an abundance of choices is the base for the freedom of choice (and that of the will)! But, most of the times, the too many choices, can create you a much greater psychological problem. The one that may lead you directly to a problematic, poor or non-selection at all! And, in many situations, your inability of taking solid decisions in certain situations, can create you a lot of troubles!
There are times, things go in the wrong direction and you strive after for ways that would permit you to regain your momentum. Is not always an easy task. Regaining your momentum, the most of the times is an intended and conscious effort that needs to re-invested every time you think, that you need it!
People are always excited about success. Successful people draw our attention, we want to follow them, we want to know the way they acted to get this success. There are lots of rules, daily habits or ways of thinking they could practice before reaching the top. But I’m sure that there’s one thing, one key principle they all used, sometimes even not realizing it.
The 5W+1H productivity formula is a small shorthand that permits us to evaluate a given task or action from a productivity point of view. This scheme consists of a number of questions whose answer would provide us with all the necessary information and data for research or for evaluation of an action.
Time management does have nothing to do with time! But it has a lot of doing with priorities.
But, how we define time management, today, and what different our interpretation has towards, similar, other “explanations“? It is only a matter of interpretation or a matter of the focus, that lead us to a different approach today. And if so, why we need something “different“?
