Our productivity depends on time spent and energy level. But perhaps an understated aspect of time and energy is our focus.
Sometimes, and with some tasks, focus may come easily. Other times there may be an outward force, such as a meeting with another person or a deadline, that can drive our focus towards our goal. Using this outward focus isn’t necessarily the sign of procrastination if we can use it effectively and still produce a product we are proud of.
Perhaps we can find other ways to sharpen our focus, and undoubtedly it is different for us all. Tapping in with what creates focus for us may be more valuable than we might think.
