“Concentration can be cultivated. One can learn to exercise will power, discipline one’s body, and train one’s mind.” ~ Anil Amban
Why Can’t I Focus?
The ability to focus or concentrate intensely for an extended time is increasingly rare in our culture today.
It is thought that the average white-collar knowledge worker gets only an hour of deep, concentrated work a month! Why? Our addiction to distraction and our culture’s expectation of always being available significantly prevent focus.
Additionally, as a culture, we are not healthy.
According to the CDC, six in ten American adults suffer from a chronic disease.
According to research from my book Unleash the Peak Performer Within You, 77% of American adults report stress is so pervasive it affects their work.
Finally, we live in an era of unprecedented change. Technology is exponentially advancing, disrupting business models, creating uncertainty and stress, and forcing individuals to adapt at never seen speed.
Is it a wonder that focus is a problem?
What You’ll Learn
What if you could master focus regardless of the circumstances in your life? It’s possible, but it will require a comprehensive approach to managing your health, mindset, and habits.
In this article, you will learn three primary points:
- What are the drivers of focus?
- What are my options to improve focus?
- How can Tiger Medical improve focus?
What are the Drivers of Focus?
Focus is multi-dimensional. When seeking to improve focus, ask yourself these questions:
- Am I in good physical condition?
- Do I possess the proper mindset?
- What are my daily habits around the use of time?
Optimizing focus takes leveling up your health and ruling out attention deficit disorder.
If your energy is poor or you feel bad most days, the focus will challenge you. If you naturally struggle to focus, consider seeing your primary care physician to rule out ADD.
An additional aspect of focus is mindset.
One will only work with focus if goals are clear, one possesses a growth mindset, and one can learn and grow through most new challenges.
Doing some work in life, having clarity, and an honest self-assessment of one’s thoughts will go a long way toward improving focus.
Lastly, setting up and working through your day is a significant driver of focus.
Advanced planning improves focus, so you aren’t searching for what you’ll do.
Avoiding constant task switching and multitasking are essential habits to avoid developing. They create a cognitive load, reducing your ability to focus.
What are My Options to Improve Focus?
First, be honest with yourself.
What do you believe is driving your focus problem? Is it poor habits? Are you low in energy or exhausted mentally? How are your mindset and daily time habits? Do you suspect there is a problem with ADD? Do you struggle with anxiety or depression?
The answer to your focus problem is rooted in one or more of the questions above.
You can visit your primary care physician or a functional medicine physician for physical considerations.
With medical care, you are ruling out physical imbalances that lower your energy and ability to concentrate.
A mental health professional can help you assess if anxiety or depression are at work in lowering your focus. Both can hurt focused, productive work.
Finally, if habits are the problem, books on productivity and flow science will help you improve how you set up and work through your workday.
