Everybody knows that concentration is necessary to accomplish a task you’re working on. I don’t think we need to spend much time defining it literally, but we do need to think about how concentration brings about a completion to our process when we allow ourselves to focus.
The more time goes by we become used to do the same process over and over which is forming habits. These habits become automatic and we fail to realize how those habits take away our opportunities to grow.
Entrepreneurs succeed by passing on any activity that lacks the need for concentrated effort and becomes a habitual activity. Those types of activities are trainable and can be done by someone else for less cost allowing the entrepreneur to develop new services and products that will grow their business.
If you’re venturing out to be an entrepreneur, you have to master concentration because you aren’t going to get paid while you work on your projects. You have to complete them or your product or service ultimately has no value. The good news is that you stand to keep getting paid for the work that you have completed long after it’s done.
The biggest distraction that works against concentration is the environment that you are in. You have to develop a plan to isolate yourself in a place that allows you the freedom to accomplish your work without constant interruption.
It’s been said that every time your concentration is broken, it takes you 15 minutes to re-focus and get back on track. So find the right environment that allows you to apply concentrated effort as much as possible.
