Are You Focused? 5 Benefits of Being Focused. By Angel Ojukwu
Being focused is very important in today’s world since we now have loads of gadgets that distract us. Our phones are one of the most distracting things I have known and seen, my phone has more 50 apps and more than 200 contacts….. 😊. I must tell you that this is a big problem for me and for this generation as well.
Focus is the key to success and happiness in life. The most successful people on this planet are highly focused. They pay attention to the present moment and present tasks. This habit ensures they are fully engaged in activities, get more done properly and deal with adverse life events better. Highly focused people are simply mindful. They don’t do many things that many of us might be prone to do.
Being focused on one thing a certain period allows you to do better quality work, more work gets done quicker, and your creative ideas flow much easier.
Being focused in the present moment means that you can achieve more on the activity you are focused on. At this time you shut out all distractions and give your full and undivided attention to the task at hand.
It’s difficult for people to remain focused on one task for a variety of reasons. As we all know, the TV, radio, phones, internet, social media will distract us.
