10 Tips to Transform Distraction into Focus

Most people attribute living life in distraction to stress and busyness. No matter whose fault Ė the external or the internal- not being completely present because you are multi-tasking or ruminating about whatís next on the list can lead to critical errors in judgment and careless mistakes. You might even notice that when you are distracted, you are more accident prone. And everything takes longer to do because distraction feeds directly into procrastination.

Distraction usually happens inside out. A daydream or a worry dominate the real, present moment. To stop being absent begin to cultivate the habit of focused attention during the good times, the lighter days with less to do, because you want this alive and alert mindset to become a reflex action when you are stressed. Stress makes you revert to habituated pathways, so make good focus your go-to mindset. A Zen saying clarifies: Be master of your mind rather than be mastered by it.
