A 'Focus' Program - Recommendations
« on: September 20, 2013, 04:17:05 PM »
Howdy Gang

OK, I'll admit it, I'm a little bit cr*p at maintaining focus on my project - can any other focus-lacker recommend an online program / tutorial that has helped them in the past?

I've tried Mark Joyner's(?) Simpleology - couldn't get with it

Any other time management/focus maintenance program out there?


Sorry, should have stated that this will be for my own use - not a program to resell

Dom have you gone through From Mindset To Action Added on: 06/07/2013 it might just be what you need.  You can also add the Internet Marketing Mindset hypnosis track Added on: 09/08/2010

As I have found many times in the past, we already have the answers to our questions.  Most of the time they are right beneath our nose.  :cool:

Well, this is what I do to write.

1. Turn off internet
2. Turn off children/wife/husband/dog/telephone etc.
3. Pour tumbler of scotch. (OK, maybe that is #1)
4. Turn on computer and get headset ready, turn on Dragon Naturally Speak
5. Bleather on for as long as you can hold a thought. (Beware, the more scotch, the more talk, but the less sense it makes)

Ergo, 500 to 1000 words a minute 

OK, I am just joking,(sort of)  but I think a lot of us know exactly what you mean! The first two are really the best for me, no internet, ergo no shiny bright objects to notice :)

I didn't see these - I was searching for 'focus' / 'time management', not 'mindset'; thanks for pointing them out

Thanks Folks

Dragon Naturally Speak sounds a good program, a real time-saver.

'Mindset' - something I really have to sort out I think

Cheers again

Dom - if you really want to get your focus on, there is a great piece of software that I use from time to time when I get scattered (which is often). It's call Action Enforcer. There's a free version online - which I just found out about - at http://www.actionenforcer.com/online/.

I have the desktop version which can be enjoyable or brutal. You set up the tasks.

Hope that helps - MM

BTW, please teach me - somebody - how to turn off a wife (LOL). I like the drink idea, too. Seriously, if I have something I really want to get done, I don't open my email to start my time. It's a big time suck and rarely helps with the task at hand. -MM

The drinking part sounds like a good idea. Hehehe. My first reaction when I read Dom's post - Oh, so even experts sometimes lack focus too, I thought only noobs do. For a while it was comforting as I myself sometimes get stuck with a certain task.

I find listening to music wearing my earphone helps me focus. And sometime I do light reading too to kickstart my day work.

So, Jerome, I didn't know it's been around for ages - How did that marketer miss me in the last 3 years. Anyway, I got it as a bonus with another product. And it's been helpful.

Did you ever use it? -MM

All I can say is:

The ability to focus is directly proportional to the amount of interest you have in what you're trying to accomplish.

Really, I don't think any course, webinar, tutorial, book, video, or what-have-you can "teach" you anything beyond this very simple truth.

3. Pour tumbler of scotch. (OK, maybe that is #1)

Oh, how I miss that old, musty rain barrel taste! LOL

I like this one a lot  :laugh:  But unfortunately, have to agree with Karen - focus is based on the aount of interest.

I'm using Brain Sync compilations when need some 'mind boosting', it helps a bit (or at least I believe it helps  :smiley: )
