Your capacity to concentrate, focus and follow-through, are all important factors influencing your visibility efforts. We’ve created a visibility series to explore this topic in more detail, including the kinds of influences impacting your capacity for concentration.
You can think of this recipe as a companion piece to that series, where we’re focusing on concentration as a skill. Namely, something you can develop and improve over time.
There are many ways to improve your concentration. Below you’ll find seven+ ideas to explore and test out.
So they’re the 7+ actions I recommend to shift from distracted and unable to concentrate to becoming adept at deep work and focused effort. Like any skill, the ability to concentrate doesn’t happen overnight. You have to train your brain away from old habits toward new and healthy ones. The easiest way to do that is to choose one of the actions above and take it repeatedly over the next month or two. Actions performed repeatedly produce results. This is just as true of concentration as it is of any other visibility skill you might be developing.
