To remain productive in business, one needs to focus on what is important to see things through.
When you are able to concentrate, you will be in a position to bring the best of you and make an impact that will help you grow your business.
Why Focus is Important
In an email interview with David Schmidt, he shared that focus helps him be more successful and get more done.
He stated, “I can get an idea off the ground very fast, and I’m able to concentrate on it for a good amount of time and not get distracted.”
One thing that has helped Schmidt be successful at his company is the way he and his teams approach to change.
He has come up with the idea that his company will keep moving forward with changes and changes are constantly evolving.
He has also learned that sometimes, sometimes, a change is good but sometimes it is bad.
He then shared that when you are faced with a change, you must be able to admit to yourself that it’s going to be tough but can be done.
What does it take to stay focused?
It starts with passion.
No matter how much sleep you get, it is impossible to stay focused if you don’t have passion for what you do.
The same applies to all great entrepreneurs.
If you love what you do, you will work hard and smart and also keep your eye on the prize.
Schmidt: There is a science to staying focused.
For example, in my day-to-day work, I manage multiple teams, and we constantly work on a multitude of products and initiatives.
At the same time, I do a lot of traveling, which keeps me from concentrating entirely on one task.
Instead, I use a daily checklist that helps me prioritize and plan.
How does one stay focused?
Schmidt: The most important aspect of this is a lack of self-satisfaction.
When I started a company, my goal was to have a daily mindset that is focused on the project at hand.
In my experience, it does not help to go in too focused on achieving perfection or to believe that you will always be perfect.
