Our jobs, social lives, and home lives constantly pull us in all different directions. Whether it’s our boss asking us to “take care of something real quick,” our friends texting us to see if we’re free this weekend, or our children reminding us they have soccer practice that afternoon, our responsibilities can be a bit overwhelming.
It’s no wonder we can never concentrate on one thing at a time.
Thankfully, MindTools, a website focusing on helping others succeed in their careers, has put together an infographic describing the best ways to stay focused throughout your day in order to operate at your maximum potential. The infographic dives into the many factors which influence your concentration – whether you realize it or not.
Some of these factors are, admittedly, a bit obvious (such as the presence of distractions within the workplace). But others, such as leading a healthy lifestyle – whether through exercise, eating well, or utilizing smart energy supplements – often take a backseat to our other obligations, and go unnoticed throughout our daily lives.
The infographic goes on to present actionable advice that will help improve your concentration, and in doing so, increase your daily productivity. Check it out below, and be sure to visit MindTools.com for more advice and strategies to help you be the best you possible.
