“Success Begins From The Inside Out!”

How to stay focused is a concern of many online entrepreneurs.

You may find yourself going back and forth in working your business goals and all the other stuff that has nothing to do with those goals. Then there are the constant distractions coming at you from your inbox. Anything that takes your focus off what you want to accomplish is an obstacle because accomplishing any goal requires focus, commitment, and perseverance.

If you find yourself juggling too many tasks and getting nothing done right, then it’s time to make a change.

Here are tips on how to stay focused on your goals:

1. Schedule your time.
How to Stay Focused: Block out time for specific tasks and use a timer. Try==> I find it easiest to commit to a certain amount of focused time each day for each task that is necessary to get to my goals. Take breaks. Most people can not maintain mental focus for hours at a time. So, try to spend 10 minutes doing nothing every day. Staying focused is a lot easier if you know there’s a planned break coming up. Also, leverage technology so you can get things done faster and more efficiently.

2. Don’t get distracted.
How to Stay Focused: Clear away all distractions. This includes anything that takes away your attention or saps your energy, like TV and family drama. That means you may want to turn off Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn and not check your email nor answer the phone. Also, clear your work space of clutter. Chaos may cause you to lose focus.

3. Use a List.
How to Stay Focused: List everything that is on your mind. Then prioritize your tasks. Accomplish things on your list by doing them one by one. This is great training for learning to focus your mind. Writing my list before bed works well for me. I also keep a pad near my bed because as I’m dozing off and going over what I accomplished that day, I sometimes get new ideas. Also, I want a pad nearby in the morning because my mind is clearest when I’m waking up. You may want to have a list of things not to do. These are things that you are not good at and would be better off outsourcing or delegating to someone else.

4. Motivational statements can work.
How to Stay Focused: Post a focus statement in your work area, like:
“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” — Confucius.

5. Jack of all trades.
How to Stay Focused: Try to resist multi-tasking. You can’t focus on several things and do them well.

6. It’s overwhelming.
How to Stay Focused: Don’t allow yourself to feel overwhelmed by everything you need to do. Remind yourself of what you want to accomplish or achieve. Break tasks up into easy-to-do pieces.

7. Make progress.
How to Stay Focused: Track progress on your goals and write them in a journal. It’s so important for me to know that I am making progress, even if no one else can see it.

8. Hang with achievers.
How to Stay Focused: Surround yourself with people who are achieving similar goals. If you want to improve your life and accomplish your goals, hang out with people who are doing the same.

9. Get a buddy.
How to Stay Focused: Get a focus buddy. You can start the day by sharing what you plan to do that day. You may find that it works well to check in with each other several times a day.

10. Learn to relax.
How to Stay Focused: Relax your mind. Sometimes your mind will go on overdrive. Learning to slow things down will improve your focus, concentration and memory.

    I have a wife and kids. For me, I just ask for some time to do my online marketing.

    I’m so glad they are understanding about this. If not, focusing would be really hard.

    This is a good article for those that get distracted easily. Staying focused is so crucial when you’re working online. Losing your concentration because of things like Facebook usually result in the loss of valuable time.

      That’s true. Distractions from Facebook and email are easier to manage than distraction from focusing on your specific goals while building your business. Online business building requires intense focus and commitment.
