We are easily distracted in today’s world, if there is a loud bang, or emergency sirens, we immediately turn our focus or attention to the distraction. Or sometimes we just can’t hold a thought for more than 6 seconds at a time. Try it, think of what you did 5 minutes ago, then what was your second thought? Think about it. We have thousands of thoughts every day, and it is so hard to concentrate.
I’m finding when I read, the article or book makes me think of something else, then I don’t know what I just read.
Staying laser focused would mean to concentrate on an idea or thought, and only on that thought until we decide to think of something else. Problem seems to be how long we can think of the same thing. I’m having problems thinking of what to write next in this blog post.
So, why should we keep a thought for more than 6 seconds? Well, it’s simple, if we want something done that requires thought, we better continue thinking until the object or purpose is finished. How about a magnifying glass, we have all used them to enlarge something so we can see it larger. And most people know that you can use the magnifying glass and focus the sun’s rays on a piece of paper or wood and with “laser focus” and holding the focus we get great heat which the effect is fire.
How would staying “laser focused” on something that is important, knowing it will give us results, benefit us? Maybe our chores, or services would get done faster and better. Ever clean the house and you get “laser focused” on cleaning something and you spend the rest of your cleaning time on that one thing, and wow!
Does this make any sense? Well, in closing here, i’m having a hard time with being “laser focused!”
