How 100x Your Focus Using “Tight Bubbles of Total Focus”
The environment is a key factor when it comes to productivity. So why are you not paying attention to it?
There are SIX different types of procrastination personalities. Do you know what your procrastination personality is? Take this short quiz to find out!
Your environment is so important and if you look at B-performers or C-producers they really don‘t pay a lot of attention to their environment.
And so they get very distracted.
There are lots of noises, their phones are going off, maybe there‘s news in the background, messy environments all around them, toxic people.
How can you become an A-performer?
Robin Sharma's advice is to install environments of Tight Bubbles of Total Focus.
It works like this:
#1 Become Hard to Reach
Be very hard to reach during key times of your week.
We know what the research says: we spend 2.1 hours a day in distraction and it takes 21 minutes to refocus our focus after we’ve been distracted.
So if you are being distracted by notifications, checking your phone, or checking social media, that is gonna destroy your focus.
#2 Label Your Days
Have certain days that you label as creative days and on those days go device-free.
Make yourself very hard to find.
And be in total solitude.
If you can/want, go to a specific place where you‘re completely distraction-free.
And then you will find your brain will drop from the beta state into the alpha state.
Where you will do your best work and get your best ideas.
