5 Ways You Can Stay Focused On Your Life Goals

5 Ways You Can Stay Focused On Your Life Goals

It's so easy to get distracted nowadays. There are just too many things competing for our attention, and it can feel like there is never enough time in the day to do everything. Staying focused on your life goals can seem impossible these days! In this blog post, I will discuss 5 ways that you can stay focused and be more productive with your time and keep your life on track.

⌚ - Set aside time every day to work on your goals:

Staying focused is challenging, but you can make it easier by carving out a block of time every day for working towards your goals, whether that means getting up early or squeezing in more hours at night, set aside some time. Just for yourself! Find the time that works best for you and set a reminder in your phone or email to let you know when it's time. You need to take the steering wheel on this one.

💪 - Take care of yourself:

Staying focused is often hard because we are not taking proper care of ourselves. Taking care of ourselves will help us be more productive with our time because we'll have the energy to do so! Make sure that you're eating healthy, getting enough sleep (not too much!), exercising regularly, spending quality time with friends and family, taking time for yourself, and working on your goals.

The phrase "If you don't love yourself then, why do you expect others to do so?" stuck with me over the years. (this also applies to respect, just saying).  

🤩 - Stay positive:

Staying focused is also challenging when you are feeling negative or unproductive. Try setting achievable goals that don't feel too overwhelming—you'll be more likely to reach them, which will make you feel better and help you stay focused!

Setting smaller goals will enable you to feel progress and provide you with that

"I've BOSSED it"

feeling, and you want to cultivate that.  Remember, Jeff Bezos wanted to sell books online... But, he kept his focus and look where he is now.  

📴 - Strictly limit your time on the internet:

The internet is an amazing resource, but it can also become a huge distraction. Staying focused means limiting our use of social media (try logging out for 15 minutes!). This is the one I also personally struggle with... but creating windows of internet browsing allows me to get my social media fix while keeping productive. Personally for me. 10 mins in the morning, 10 mins during lunch and some browsing in the evening. Managing social media addiction is another topic that I'll cover later.

🧿 - Prioritise:

Staying focused can be hard for various reasons, such as having too many things going on at once and not finishing anything we start. Identify what's most important—whether it be our health, relationships with friends and family, or work—and put our focus there. Staying focused on just one thing at a time will help us to get everything done!

Keeping to your priorities daily is something that sets the average Joe apart from a serial achiever. Where you feel resistance is where the biggest growth will happen.

🏁 So, in summary:

Staying focused is not easy these days when it seems that we have no control over what's pulling us in every direction. But the truth of the matter is that there is always something pulling us in some direction. Ultimately you need to decide what that direction is. Staying focused can be challenging, but it's not impossible! In this blog post, we discussed five ways to stay more productive with your time and decrease the distractions around you so that you may focus on what matters most- staying focused on your life goals.
