I got an email from Cindy Bidar with such juicy advice for better focus, I immediately asked her if she planned to turn it into a blog post – because I wanted to curate the content for my peeps!
Cindy, being the smart person she always is, said YES and this blog post about the power of focus in business was born.
- Clean up my space.
- Prioritize my to-do list.
- Limit open apps.
- Block distracting websites.
- Close unnecessary tabs.
Cindy's closing point is the golden ah-ha of the entire post:
Finally, one thing I’ve learned is that when I’m really having trouble focusing on a task, it pays to ask, “Should I be doing this at all?” Many times, my distracted brain is trying to tell me I’d be better off outsourcing that project and just getting it done, rather than continuing to fight with it.
It's not surprising to me that Cindy and I have similar distraction minimizing business habits. We are both dedicated to not working harder than we have to, having learned from the best and worst examples in our industry over the years.
AND, of course, if outsourcing is your clear next step for your better focus, get signed up for her course, Outsourcing Success Plan.
