How To Stay Focused At Work
As a new age employee, you have a lot on your plate. Staying focused can be tough with a constant stream of employees, clients, emails, and phone calls demanding your attention. Amid the noise, understanding your brain’s limitations and working around them can improve your focus and increase your productivity.
While multitasking is an important skill, it also has a downside. “It reduces our intelligence, literally dropping our IQ, We make mistakes, miss subtle cues, fly off the handle when we shouldn’t, or spell things wrong. To make matters worse, distraction feels great. Your brain’s reward circuit lights up when you multitask, meaning that you get an emotional high when you’re doing a lot at once.
Daniel Goleman, the author of Emotional Intelligence, Social Intelligence, and many other books on the power of cultivating awareness explains why focus is crucial to great leadership. Focused leaders can command the full range of their own attention: They are in touch with their inner feelings, they can control their impulses, they are aware of how others see them, and they can weed out distractions and also allow their minds to roam widely, free of preconceptions.
