If you noticed that your brain has developed the bad habit of skipping important things and being unable to focus on one thing for at least 5 minutes (e.g. reading an article), you need to do something fast.
Focus is important for success and these days, many people are suffering from an extremely short attention span and lack of focus.
What I recommend you do is that you begin to meditate for at least 5 minutes a day.
Meditate here simply means – Set your timer, close your eyes and try to think about nothing.
Of course, you will have thoughts trying to force their way in, just try to block them and focus.
If you keep at it, after a while, you will be able to meditate for 5 minutes.
Once you get there, increase it to 10 minutes daily.
Then 15 minutes, then 20 minutes.
I started doing this a few months ago in the morning.
I have mastered 5 minutes but yet to get to 10 minutes.
It is about mastering that part of your mind that is always itching and finding something to do.
Try it. It works.
