Is your team spending most of their time working on the most important thing, distraction free? Are they doing this in a sustainable way, without accumulating stress?
If not, why not? Chances are, team members are getting caught up in responding to non-urgent notifications, in multi-tasking etc. They are busy, maybe even feeling overwhelmed, yet might not be working on the most impactful things.
Changing work habits can change this pattern. Learning to manage one’s focus is a crucial part of this. The ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task is a skill that allows you to develop your professional skills and produce better results in less time. Learning how to create the right habits to maintain focus (this includes appropriate rest!) results in getting more done with less stress.
In a broader sense, being focused is about being present in the moment. If we are aware of what we are focused on, if we are aware of body and breath also, then we are fully present with life.
