How to Stay Focused with Your Work at the Office

How to Stay Focused with Your Work at the Office PhotoFocusing on what you are doing is very important, especially at work. But when you have many things around distracting you, it would be tough. You will end up procrastinating and then you forget what you really need to do.

Being focused is a lot difficult when you are in front of your computer where you will be able to visit several sites online especially those you like.

To help you with that, here are 5 tips on how to stay focused with your work.

Plan Ahead

Put in mind that your work is very important to you thus value your work. Plan the things that you need to do and visualize how the whole day would look like.

Write down or list down the things that you need to do and then set up your timeline on when you need a certain task to be done. You can do this with the help of an app that you can find on the internet through your PC or phone. But make sure that you can use this app offline and read the next tip.

Work Offline

A survey showed that the highest percent of the distractions come from digital distractions, like emails, social networking sites and phone notifications. Well if you really need to be notified, it’s best to have it after work.

In this way you can surely focus on what you are doing, can make sure that your thoughts will be kept intact and will never be carried away with these disturbances.

One Small Task at a Time

Studies show that the brain works faster and even better when you have a smaller workload. So when you have an enormous size of work, like planning an event or something, you need to split the work into small projects. So that it would be easier to get done.

You will be surprised to find out at the end of the day that putting small pieces back together can make you finish a big task.

Take a Break

Sometimes when you stay in your workplace for a long time, your brains wears out. And you end up not understanding anything you’re doing and / or just forget where you are in something you has started.

So stand up, take a break and do some exercise. Or grab a chocolate bar on the snack stand. That should help you think more great ideas that can add to your previous idea.

Reward Yourself

After all the hardships you did, like staying away from your Facebook profile and not looking at your phone for any text message from your loved one, you have to reward yourself.

You can either treat yourself to your favorite restaurant, or buy something you really like. That should do that trick in keeping you motivated.

Any work can be done nicely and fast as long as you stay focused, but because of the things so tempting around you, following the aforementioned steps will surely be of great help.

    Great tips! I used to have a serious problem with focusing and procrastinating. It was the main issued that caused me the greatest angst in the past. When I begin writing I had to be honest with myself and face the music. I begin planning my day out and working that plan until I got better at it. To be honest with you, I’m still a work in progress. However, I’m a lot better than I’ve ever been in my life. I also learned how to celebrate after I’ve accomplished a feat, which was HUGE for me. Sometimes if we’re taught a certain way of doing things it can be hard for us to reward ourselves, based on our past. The latter step is the most important one, I think. We must learn (if we don’t know how) to reward ourselves after we’ve had a success. In fact, I have a saying that says, “Celebrate the smallest victories.” A person definitely needs to celebrate themselves and their accomplishments!

    Great read! Thanks for sharing.
