Instant Focus: How to Get and Stay Focused at What You're Doing Instantly! is another new book from the Instant-Series. Do you have a problem zoning out in meetings? When your kids are talking to you? When your spouse is talking to you? If so, you may have a problem maintaining focus. This author has some tough words to say, and they are even more difficult to hear. He maintains that lack of focus is a lack of respect. If you don’t respect your boss, your spouse, or your children, that is inexcusable and must change! If you hate your job, it is disrespectful to keep working there and you should find something that suits you! In the meantime, you have to realize that it is a blessing to have a job when there are so many homeless and jobless in the world.
What are the reasons a person might lack focus? Tiredness, too much on their mind, too much going on around them at the moment (barking dogs, television, or while driving) can all be factors affecting one’s focus. And what can you do about it? Change something (like get up and walk around). Break your task down into manageable “bites” and get up and stretch after each section is finished. Reward yourself for staying on task as long as it takes. Another tip was to “give me 5 more.” You can always walk 5 more minutes, or write 5 more sentences, or eat 5 more cookies — just kidding!
Instant Focus will help me in my day to day life. I do lose focus from time to time and when I think of it as a lack of respect, I am more motivated to make changes. This book would be great for anyone who is too busy since that is frequently a cause of lack of focus.
