Four Easy Ways to Develop "Day Focus"
How else can you develop "Day Focus"? Day Focus is that ability to start and end every day with a clear sense of who you are and more importantly, what you want to get done in any given day. Here are some tips:
- Get up at a reasonable time. While I try to start my weekdays at around 5:15am, I think that a reasonable approach is best- not too early nor too late. Lounging is not usually a virtue in the productivity world.
- Get your important things done before you tucker out. If the 2 o'clock blues hit after lunch, get your stuff done before then.
- Do something physical. Walking around, working out, breathing. You get the point. Benedictan monks had it right when they coined the phrase "ora et labora" (pray and work).
- End your day with some 'buffer time'. Even great marathoners have a "cool down" period after a race. Take 15 minutes to relax, meditate and ease into your sleeping time.
