Want Concentration Power?
At a seminar this weekend, I was asked – what are the keys to focus and concentration power. My mind immediately flashbacked to Mrs. Williams’, my sixth-grade teacher, favorite saying--”concentrate, concentrate, concentrate.” I didn’t share that thought, but I did mention several tips found on the Cultivating Greatness Blog. Author Leon Edward offers sevens tips to concentrate power:
1. Go with one step at a time 2. Take the initiative and do just five more things 3. Keep a note pad handy 4. Tunnel Vision for Better Focus 5. Take a break 6. Keep track of your time for tasks 7. Stagger your tasks
Step #3 is one practice that I've been working on. Sometimes I'd find myself out doing errands and an idea crosses my mind--but I'd spend several moments trying to find paper to jot down my thoughts.
