I’m here right now. I get to use my knowledge, my experience and myself when I am here in right now. I think about what I’d like to head into. I let my subconscious, my unconscious mind, be aware of where I’d like to head. I try to be aware of the choices I’m making.
Now is my time of being and doing. I’m visualizing the future, too. I remember what I’ve learned to manage. I recognize that I learn as I go. As I’m learning, each of the things I’m learning tends to focus me because I get little “Aha!” moments.
Those “Aha!” moments when I gain insights keep me attending closely to what’s happening now. That helps me be experiencing and in tune with what I’m learning. Other things shift into the background. Distractions fall away when I’m intent on something that I’m doing right now. That’s how I stay focused.
I’m choosing as I learn. New habits take more effort in the beginning than when it becomes part of my routine. As I push new habits into smaller spaces of time, I have room for more new habits.
I choose to make decisions. I choose to implement them! It’s that decision making that keeps me focused. I’ve chosen things that matter to me. I choose between things and allow some stuff to recede into the background.
For me, staying focused has a lot of aspects to it. I can stay focused when I choose a balance of different kinds of activities. The feeling of accomplishment helps me. It’s important to allow myself those feelings of accomplishment. So, I build an environment around me that allows accomplishment to happen. Breaks allow me to focus back in on one task! A task that takes 15 minutes gives me a sense of accomplishment when it’s done. I’m taking these little building blocks and putting them into a foundation.
I’m creating a process. Just like an Olympic runner must build up endurance, I’m building endurance. Paying attention to the balance of rest and endurance gives me an environment where I lift myself up. As I do, sometimes I can limit distractions. When I can, I do. When I can’t? I accept it and move on.
The gaining of a habit takes a lot of effort.
The difference of having a habit changes my life.
For me, the reward encourages me to choose to pay the price.
Want focus? Want habits?
Decide to build…
