A Concentration Technique
Brainpower Contest Winner # 1
Here is the winning entry for the first weekly brainpower
(For rules and to see other winning entries, visit the page
Brainpower Tips Contest.)
I have a technique to concentrate better
on what you need to do.
Even if I really need to do something
I end up not doing it because something else is on my mind. Either
I am hungry, or just have an urge to do something.
Whatever it is, just do it. Don't spend a long time on it, but if something
is bothering you, get it out of the way because then you will
have a clear mind and will be able to do better quicker work
than you could before. If I have an urge to do something, and
it is getting in the way of my concentration, I find quickly
doing it and then going on to what I really need to do helps
a lot, and makes me much more productive. It is always easier
to work with a clear mind, and getting those little things out
of the way clears your mind for the really important task.
Hope you like it,
I do like it, and I think it would work well in conjunction
with mindfulness techniques. (You can read more on these here:
Thank you Gil, and I hope that you like the prize.
I had about eight entries in the three days following this
In order to get the newsletter put together and have this
page up before that, I have to pick a winner just two or three
days after each newsletter. However, if you sent any ideas in
later, I may use them for the following weeks.
