6 Ways To Be More Focused

  • Decide what your things are.

Remember it’s all the things I do. Not just all the things. What are you focused on and what do you need to do. What others are doing is none of your business.

  • Decide what isn’t important.

What don’t you want? What doesn’t deserve your focus? Know what you don’t want to focus on and when you catch yourself doing it check yourself!

  • Remember the big picture.

Taylor Swift said, “I wanna be your end game. What is your end game? What is it that you want to do. What is your end game?

  • Breakdown the big picture.

Once you know your end game you need to figure out the steps to accomplish your goals. What do you need to do? What are the timelines?

  • Adapt to change

Let’s be honest shit happens. When life throws lemons at you, you can either make lemonade, vodka waters or just sit in your bed and cry. If life doesn’t go according to plan you have to either rewrite the plan or change the goal. Don’t stop moving. Sometimes things change.

  • Ask for help

You simply cannot do it alone. People often feel as soloprenuers they have to do “All the things” themselves. Remember it’s not all the things, it’s all the things I do. Focus on what you do and get help for what you don’t.
