One of the biggest issues entrepreneurs have is around focus.
How can I focus more? How can I procrastinate less?
And it makes sense. When you’re an entrepreneur, there’s always a million things on your to-do list, and in many cases, the more you get done, the more money you make.
So, you want to spend your day being productive and focused.
Well, a couple of things.
First off, for a lot of us, I think we look for (or we allow our inner critic to look for) negative traits to beat ourselves up. And a perceived lack of focus is a great one to use.
But, what if something else was true?
What if your focus, or lack thereof, was a sign of something deeper going on.
Let me give you an example. Maybe every time you sit down to work on a certain project, you find your attention wanes and you’re suddenly messing around on Facebook — even though you’ve closed it about a dozen times.
You think the problem is you just aren’t focused. But maybe what the problem is is you don’t have enough information and need to do some research.
Or maybe, this is not a project you need to be working on and you ought to be delegating it. Or not doing it at all.
Or maybe, this is precisely the project you need to be working on, and you have some subconscious or mindset blocks that are keeping you from working on it and if you want to move forward, you need to move past those blocks.
Or maybe you’ve lost your passion. Not just for this project but for your business.
Not being focused doesn’t necessarily mean there’s something wrong with you. It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s something that needs to be fixed or you need to go out and learn a bunch of productivity tips or hacks.
It may just be a sign there’s another issue, a deeper issue, with whatever it is you’re supposed to be working on. And once you address that, your focus will also return.
So, what do you know if there is a deeper issue going on or how to figure out what that deeper issue is? Watch now:
