Are you struggling with finding ways to boost your focus and determination? Nowadays, there are tons of things waiting to distract you as you strive to reach your ultimate goal… but the important thing to remember is that you can’t tell a success story without including a determination chapter, which is often the longest.

Success demands us to have many traits, with willpower and motivation being the top in this case. Most of us believe that determination is an innate trait — that’s an absolute fallacy. It would be unfair to think people are born with determination and only those can be successful. Nobody is born with infinite success. If you ask any successful person what they did to ‘make it’ in life, they will most likely mention hard work +  determination, and how they had to come up with ways to effectively harness and utilize the qualities they.

Article Summary: This article discusses the three best methods to maintain your focus as you age and manage it throughout your lifetime.

  1. Always Plan Your Day The Night Before
    Before you go to bed every night, plan the next day’s activities — what you’ll wear, the meal you’ll have for lunch, dinner plans, and anything else you can think of. Pack a healthy lunch for the next day before you go to sleep, instead of deciding about it minutes before you head off to work. You should also plan a budget to avoid spending money on unnecessary items. Once you decide on the budget range, stick to it by creating a schedule. As the day ends, shut your eyes for a minute and congratulate yourself on all the ways you’ve taken charge of your day. Adopting the habit of planning your day will help you decide what should take priority and what can be postponed. This will help you avoid getting side-tracked and wasting precious time and energy on small things.

  1. Start With The Most Difficult Things
    Complicated things are not easy to handle when you’re tired and/or unmotivated. You might even find yourself fretting or putting things off. Start with the most challenging task in the morning while your mind is still fresh and you have more energy. Our minds are the sharpest in the early hours. This is the best time to tackle more demanding tasks. After completing them, you can take a break and rest before attending to the more routine tasks that don’t require as much energy, mentally or physically.

  1. Get Rid Of Distractions
    You have probably heard the phrase ‘expect the unexpected.’ Real emergencies can happen, and we must find time for them. However, most of the things that come up only cause distractions and don’t actually require an immediate response.  Attending non-urgent requests will only make your day more difficult, as it will pave the way for even more procrastination. By ignoring these distractions, you’ll be proving to yourself that you are strong-willed, focused and too busy to be bothered by trivial, time-wasting things.

Bottom Line – Distractors emerge as we age, making us lose focus on reaching things we should actually be prioritizing. While some things are critical to maintaining our focus and determination; planning, avoiding distractions, and starting your day with the more challenging tasks will help enhance your focus, making you age gracefully.
