Attention Management Is More Productive Than Time-Management
To be more productive, you don’t have to manage your time better. You have to manage your attention better.
Steve Jobs famously stated that focus is about saying no to 99 things so you can yes to one thing that is important.
Time management tends to be a part of the problem.
How often have you been distracted by tools that promise to offer you better time-management skills?
We end up wasting time on apps, calendars, planning spreadsheets…
Here are some simple ideas on how to cut out the non-essential tasks in your day:
Manage Your Attention Better
Managing your attention involves learning how to focus on getting the right things done at the right time and in the right places.
When you manage your attention better, you will learn how to prioritize the projects and people that really matter to you. Time will no longer be a big issue.
When you have less distracting elements in your surroundings, you are more likely to get more work done.
Are you trying to get your work done in a coffee shop where you know most of the patrons on a personal level? Perhaps it is best to work in a quiet corner of a co-working space where nobody knows who you are.
Remember that the key to getting things done is not how you manage your time.
Often, our attention wanders because our work is not personally satisfying or fulfilling.
To truly find your focus, look for work that is meaningful to you. When you are engrossed in work that is enjoyable, challenging and meaningful to you, time-management will no longer be an issue.
