Creating Space for Focused Work

Very often we’ll push off the bigger, more meaningful tasks because they take longer, and we’re either in distracted mode or quick-task mode.

Set aside the next 20 minutes for writing, or getting moving on a big project. You don’t have to do the whole project in this time, but just the act of giving yourself more space to focus is a huge shift.

Working in Fullscreen Mode

This habit is about letting this one meaningful task become your whole universe.

This translates into writing in a fullscreen writing app. Or opening a browser tab in a separate window (with no other tabs showing) and putting that window in fullscreen mode. It can also mean doing one thing at a time in offline life as well.

Increasing your focused time

It comes down to three habits:

  • Asking yourself what meaningful, impactful work you can get done today.
  • Creating space for meaningful work instead of just doing busywork or being distracted all day.
  • Working in fullscreen mode and diving in.

Deciding on Your Impactful Work

It’s an incredible habit to take even a few moments at the beginning of your day (or the end of the day before) to give some thought to where you’d like to concentrate your attention. 

Ask yourself: What is worth doing today? What is worth focusing on? What is worth spending the limited time you have in this life?
