Many students find it difficult to pay attention or concentrate. We all know what concentration means. Giving your close undivided attention to something. But it’s one thing to know what it means and an hour to be able to concentrate on your studies. Many students complain that they just cannot concentrate. In other words, their minds rise from one thing to another, and their thoughts are on over the place, except on their studies. If you feel like it. this you are not alone. But what needs to be done to overcome this? Studies show that people are most able to refocus for an average of only 6 hours each week. Thus, you may want to be highly productive within those few hours. you should know that everyone has the ability to concentrate.
Think of a time when you were totally engrossed in something you really enjoyed. For example, a movie, a book, a game of rugby or football. You can concentrate. The trick is to use the right strategies to unlock your natural ability to concentrate and apply this to your studies, and even beat that average of only six hours human beings can concentrate per week. Have you ever wondered what highly focused and productive people do differently than others? And how are they able to establish an extremely high level of focus? If your answer is yes, I’m going to present you with four major strategies to dramatically improve your focus.
01. Know yourself
Why do you concentrate and why don’t you concentrate? When you begin to understand why you behave or feel the way you do in various situations in your life. You will gain closeness to yourself. Think of the way you concentrate as your data begins by collecting the data so that you may make a commitment to understanding who you really are. There might be a situation where you don’t understand why you do, what you do, why you concentrate, or why you don’t concentrate. But just keep in mind there is always consistency in your chain of life. Take note of them, as an exercise. Take a piece of paper, and split it into parts, one for while you concentrate and the other one for while you don’t concentrate. Write it down in both lists or your races. If you want to, you can share some of your insights with us in the discussions section.
02. Find a good time to study
It helps if you pay attention to when you study the best or when you are the most productive. For some people, this might be when you first wake up and you don’t have anything distracting you yet throughout the day you are more likely to become distracted, so it’s better to study when your mind is still fresh. Furthermore, starting where you first wake up is really productive too, because you are less started and generally already more focused. The first strategy prioritizes what topics require more attachment when the hours and dedicates the appropriate amount of time to them. Prioritize all the tasks that demand a lot of your concentration and creativity so you can accomplish them long before your energy gets accepted. Proceed with lighter tasks later in the day as exercise, and keep a diary or agenda with you.
03. A master list of all of your high-level priorities
Write all your study goals and priorities in it and take a to-do list for a look at them. Sometimes I even post this list of priorities in my room because, for me, it’s very useful. Keep it daily to-do list with your own priorities. And don’t be rigid with it. Be dynamic when in it and make adjustments.
04. Break larger tasks into smaller ones
Sometimes we feel like we have too much to do and we procrastinate. Instead, we can avoid this by doing what we are able to do first and slowly building our way up. Furthermore, it helps if you seek help for the tasks you cannot accomplish, so you don’t get stuck in one place and become frustrated.
05. Learn actively
This will help you concentrate and remember. Active learners are into something with what they have learned in order to learn actively. Follow these steps,
Put what you have learned into your own words.
- Compare what you are learning with what you already know.
- Link new facts to what you already know.
- Apply what you are learning to your own situation.
- And find ways to use that new information in your day-to-day activity at school or personal life.
06. We act in mental activity
Use a hierarchy of questions to help you focus when reading a reference material or listening to a lecture rather than passively reading through it or listening and hoping that something will stick and then write brief notes about the answers to your questions. Ask yourself how you will use the material, where it fits, what you already know, and what new questions it triggers.
07. Reflect and adjust
You will want to closely monitor yourself on a daily and weekly basis and make adjustments. You should regularly ask yourself the following questions. while those are related to your studies and how to better acquire new skills. You could just as well use them in any work or living situation.
- What is my main goal?
- What is my goal for the week?
- What do I need to do today? Where am I at this moment?
- Is this technique scheduled place relationship situation working?
- Is it worth improving?
- How can I improve it?
And I suggest asking these questions and answering them related to your agenda network diary. I asked you to keep it on your to-do list. Here is the action step for you to read this lesson at least twice and contemplate what has been said. Second, write your opinion about this lesson and how it would be helpful to you to become a more focused person. Thank you very much.
