A Focus on Focus
Advice for staying focused is easy to come by, especially across all the online venues you *might* find yourself browsing, when you are, in fact, having a hard time focusing. Twitter of course is one such playground filled with fun distractions and also practical advice, like @katgoldliving’s elegant post about productivity.
One frame in particular turned our heads, the one titled “Keep learning new skills.”
It’s a refreshing, counterintuitive, and deliciously rebellious concept: Increase my ability to focus in the long-term by allowing my wanderlusting brain to step out for a brief learning tryst with a new idea?
It’s also a sound strategy. Learning new things can boost confidence and blow off the cobwebs of boredom, making you feel refreshed and fresh-eyed to circle back on that thing you couldn’t focus on earlier.
