There might be certain days at work or school where you’ll find yourself being more stressed than usual.
Maybe your boss just said something negative to you about the quality of your work.
Maybe you have a school project deadline coming up very soon and everyone’s panicking to get it done quickly.
Either way, you realise that it’s starting to affect you negatively.
You just can’t seem to focus on getting work done because your brain is constantly thinking and worrying.
Some of us go into complete disarray when we’re stressed and pressured.
We can’t think straight.
We start doing and saying things that don’t make sense.
And the quality of our work goes down because our minds are just all over the place.
The only thing we need to do is to be able to focus on getting stuff done by shutting out all unnecessary thoughts.
Assuming that you’re not sleep-deprived or tired, the reason why you’re unable to focus is most likely due to all those thoughts running through your mind.
If you have a million things in your mind demanding for your attention, you’re not going to be able to focus and accomplish much.
You’ll just be distracted and worried by those thoughts.
You won’t be able to get in the zone while you’re working.
You won’t be making much progress in your work.
The human brain is really bad at multi-tasking.
It’s all about your ability to be still and focused on that one task you have to get done when everything else seems to be falling apart.
Pressurizing thoughts will pop up in your mind but you don’t let them faze you.
Shut them out and focus on the work you have to get done.
That’s the mark of a strong-minded individual.
“The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus”
