4. Focus, Focus, Focus

This word may sound like a broken record but when I feel like I am losing focus, I like to visualize an athlete. Athletes are some of the most extremely focused and disciplined people.

Remember Gabby Douglas the 16 year old gymnast falling off the beam during the 2012 Olympics and crawling back up to finish her routine. That’s focus. Resist the temptation to constantly check your email, Iphone or other people’s Facebook and Twitter updates. Time yourself as you work through your projects. This will help you track how long a certain project is taking you and help you make necessary changes. Crossing out finished tasks gives me unbridled joy. Now you try it.
