The Barriers To Focus

Being focused - whether at the office or at home, is critical to getting things done, and done correctly.

Lisa Haneberg, over at Management Craft, conducted a survey among her readership that asked the question:

"If only I could ___________ , I would be more focused."

Interestingly, (but not surprisingly) a quick take of the responses reads like a long list of excuses or barriers to focusing.

BOTTOMLINE: The skill of focus or concentration is a habit. It can be learned and improved over time. And, as any habit, it does take a degree of discipline.

Take a look here for all the responses. (How many of responses have you used as barriers to your own focus?)
