  Week 4 Introduction

Increasing Focus & Limiting Distraction

This week is titled “Increasing your focus and limiting distraction.” It could just as easily be called “Productivity” but productivity is a word that’s been thrown around so much over the years it’s almost lost its meaning.

This week isn’t about a bunch of hacks, tools, or shortcuts to somehow give you more time back in your day. There’s nothing wrong with those things — at Learn Stash, we’re obviously a big fan of tools and resources. But those things are just that: “things.”

Whatever you want to “be better” at in life, whatever you’ve clarified as your goal, those things are not going to help you truly be better. What’s going to help you be better is by increasing your focus on the habits and practices that will help you be better, and limiting the distractions that could potentially sabotage your progress. It’s really that simple.

True productivity is achieved by increasing your focus (AKA “time spent on desired goal”) and limiting the destructive behaviors/habits/practices that get in the way of your newly chosen behaviors/habits/practices.

One way to look at this week is that we are now safeguarding the habits you took your time choosing last week. Those habits are now one of the most valuable resources in your life.

Don’t believe me? You should. It’s literally the ONE thing that will get you to what you’ve said you want in life. What’s more valuable than that?

I really want you to think about this week’s quote: “You need to be doing fewer things for more effect instead of doing more things with side effects.”

We are going to work on ensuring that our daily habits have a positive effect on our life. Most people have half-hazard habits with negative side effects that make them feel like they have no control over their future. This isn’t you anymore. You have a desired destination now (we chose this already), you have desired daily habits, and know what to do (we chose these already), so now the only thing getting in the way of what you want is YOU. Do you want to make this easier or harder on yourself? That choice is also yours.

Goal of the Week

Protect your time and invest it in the areas that matter the most to you.
