Project Description

Choose an attention management technique to start using today!

After watching the class, pick your favorite tip or trick to starting improving your attention management. Whether you want to hone your focus or improve your prioritization methods, even a small change can have a big impact! Questions to consider:

  • Is there a moment or time each day where you consistently feel off-track? Consider creating a routine to smooth pain points throughout the day.

  • What is your main source of distraction that takes you away from the task at hand? Focus your efforts there first, then move on to prioritization and creating a routine.

  • Do you know at the beginning of each day what tasks to pay attention to first? Consider integrating a to-do list into your workflow to keep your attention focused.
