Dual focus is trying to do two things at once and thereby limiting yourself from doing either well.
Here are a few ideas for how to avoid dual focus:
- Break a project down into smaller steps that feel manageable, then do one step at a time
- Use this Show Up Every Day Worksheet to set your focused intention.
- If you’re using a computer, close all the apps besides the ones you need for completing the task at hand.
- Time Block your day.
- If you feel stuck, ask yourself if you’re trying to tackle more than one task. If this is true, isolate the one that has the least complexity and start there.
