The Focus Mindset: How to Stay on Task in a Distracted World
We live in a world with 70,000 thoughts that travel through our head a day. Thoughts that come and go no matter what we do. Of those thoughts, 80% are either rooted in the past or the future, with only 20% in the present. More alarming is that only half thoughts are positive, and half of those are relevant to what you are doing. With a human attention span only lasting 8 seconds, how do we ever accomplish anything?
This session will equip you with the tools to know what thoughts to keep in your focus window in mind so that can stay on task at work and hit the goals you set out to reach. Attendees will also learn to identify common workplace distractions, triggers, and action steps to take to regain focus.
What will you learn?
- Understand the conscious competence model and recognize where you are at and where you need to go.
- Identify the largest distractions in your workplace.
- How to focus on those thoughts that are present, positive and relevant.
- Create a focus action plan for how you will become better in the workplace in the future.
