There are thousands of articles written on how laser-type focus can do wonders for your work. Yet, it’s the easiest thing to lose. Even when I was writing this article my brain was thinking, what I have to do in the evening, then after that… and then I stopped for a while talked to my brain [to shut up & don’t waste time] and started writing with full concentration. Why this happens to us, is it related to the task we are doing or our brain functions in this way only? I have realized it is related to our brain and continuous uncontrolled random thoughts.
Try meditation, yoga and brain games to increase your focus and improve concentration. If we do any work without focus [without 100%effort], even after its completion, it somehow becomes unsatisfying and we start doubting ourselves. If we give 100%, then the negative feedback doesn’t shake our confidence. In another way, it helps to improve and rectify the improvements. You can get anything done with discipline, intense focus, and patience.
