Focus on What Matters and Minimize Distraction

Chris Bailey explores how distractions affect productivity, as well as what you can do ahead of time to keep yourself from getting sidetracked. Ironically, one of the best ways to manage your attention is to let your mind rest. This usually works best when paired with a habit or activity that anchors, but does not consume, your attention. Then, the mind is free to wander, make connections, and plan for the future. In this audio-only course from How to Be Awesome at Your Job, Chris discusses how to set an intention for what you want to accomplish, avoid task switching, and prevent yourself from procrastinating on the task at hand. He also shares techniques for strategically using breaks to your advantage and leveraging apps to block digital distractions. Tune into this course to learn these, and other practical ways to keep your attention trained on your most important projects.
