If you’re familiar with my work, you know that I believe that time management is an outdated concept and what matters more in the 21st century is attention management. Your ability to control your attention will be your greatest asset in the coming decades, but this is a skill like any other: if you don’t use it, you will lose it.
This series will discuss 5 strategies for improving your concentration and focus (i.e., controlling your attention.). The five ideas will be discussed in detail in individual posts, and they are:
- Controlling external distractions
- Controlling internal distractions
- Practicing attention management more through meditation
- Learning how your nutrition and eating habits affect your ability to concentrate
- Learning how exercise contributes to focus and distraction.
Three of these are not my areas of expertise, so for great advice, I’ve turned to several friends:
- Dr. Steven Klayman of Klayman Holistic Chiropractic, an author and chiropractor who has developed several self-treatment techniques for headaches, allergies, and back pain that are used all over the world. He has been practicing and teaching meditation for over 40 years and will share some of his wisdom on that topic.
- Dr. Harvey Kitzman, a PhD biochemist and certified nutritional supplement consultant. Dr. Harvey is my go-to guy for advice about the proper balance of vitamins and minerals for optimal nutrition, and you can learn more from him at HealthbyHarvey.com.
- Megan Tull, the Transformation Coach, who is also a Pilates and fitness expert. Megan helps people achieve not only their fitness goals, but their life and business goals through coaching. She can be reached via her website at MeganTull.com.
