Be Mindful to Get Focused

Tessa Todd Morgan, Speaker, Coach and Founder of TRIESSENCE, says another challenge preventing people in organizations from reaching their potential is distraction and lack of focus. Says Morgan, "It is very hard to stay focused these days with all of the distractions in the world. Studies have shown that, on average, we typically work as few as 3 minutes before we get interrupted and it takes more than 20 minutes to get back to the task at hand."

According to Morgan, the cure for distraction is to set aside time to focus on each activity. If you're eating lunch, eat lunch. If you're working, focus on work. If you're hanging with friends or family, be present with them. Says Morgan, "people need to let go of distractions and have 'Focus Time.' They also need to take breaks to keep their mind clear. Even something as small as taking a quick stroll or stretch for a minute or two every hour helps us be more productive. Focus on what you're doing in that moment. As a society, we have forgotten what it's like to really be present. This kind of mindfulness is important in all that we do: it affects how we feel and what we are able to accomplish."
