How Little Improvements in Life Matter

By Wandella Tonny

Daily progress is the strategy of making small, consistent improvements every day in order to achieve significant long-term results. While many people think of kaizen as a one-week event, it has far more impact when the entire workforce participates in daily continuous improvement.

Every day, small changes and improvements have a significant impact on performance. Make a goal for yourself, and encourage others to do the same. It does not need to be large. A daily improvement of less than 0.5 percent gets you over 8% better at the end of the month, and over a year, you’ll be 250 percent better.

How can You make minor gains on a daily basis?

Begin slowly and gradually increase your weight. Avoid getting impatient and starting to push forward and take bigger leaps. Slowly, steadily, and consistently move forward. Simply strive to improve on the previous day’s performance. The punchline is as follows: If you improve one percent every day for a year, you’ll be 37 times better by the end.

There are several instances of big and minor acts that have the potential to generate change in our lives if we just practiced them more consistently. Workouts are never missed. Performing basic business tasks on a daily basis, not just when you have time. More frequently apologizing Every week, write Thank You notes.

Progress is frequently hidden behind mundane solutions and underutilized insights. You do not require any other information. You don’t require a better strategy. All you have to do is do more of what is currently working.

We frequently assess our performance by looking ahead. We set objectives. We set goals for ourselves and set benchmarks for our progress. In essence, we attempt to forecast the future to some extent. There is an alternative, which I believe is more useful: measure backwards rather than forwards. When you measure backward, you’re making decisions based on how it has already occurred rather than what you want to occur.

Start Today

All you have to do to anticipate where you’ll wind up in life is follow the curve of modest gains or losses and watch how your everyday decisions compound 10 to 20 years down the road. Do you spend less each month than you earn? Do you go to the gym at least once a week? Are you reading a book every day and learning anything new? These are the small battles that will designate your future self.

5 Useful Tips for Improving Your Mental Focus

By Tonny Wandella.

Staying focused can be difficult when you’re surrounded by continual distractions.

Learning new things, completing goals, and working efficiently all depend on your ability to focus and channel mental effort.

These days with tech at our fingertips 24/7, it requires herculean effort on your behalf to combat the overwhelming desire to check your phone every few minutes.

Here are some psychological strategies and tricks I’ve find useful for developing laser-like mental focus and concentration.

Limit Your Concentration

While multitasking may appear to be a fantastic method to get a lot done in a short amount of time, it appears people aren’t very good at it.

Juggling numerous things at once reduces productivity and makes it far more difficult to focus on the details that matter.

Consider your focus to be a spotlight. You can see things well if you direct that spotlight on a specific area. But, if you try to disperse that amount of light across a vast dark canyon, you’d only see shadowy outlines.

Practice Mindfulness

Right now, mindfulness is a hot topic, and for good reason. Even though mindfulness meditation has been practised for millennia, its many health advantages are only now beginning to be recognised.

Take Short Breaks

Have you ever tried to concentrate on a single task for an extended period? Your focus begins to deteriorate after a while, and it becomes increasingly difficult to commit your mental resources to the work. Not only that, but your whole performance decreases as a result of it.

Traditional psychological theories say that this is due to a depletion of attentional resources, while some experts feel it has more to do with the brain’s proclivity to overlook sources of persistent stimuli.

So, the next time you’re working on a long-term project, such as filing your taxes or prepping for a test, remember to take planned mental breaks.

Even if it’s only for a few moments, divert your attention away from your current task. These brief periods of rest will allow you to keep your ability to focus sharp and your productivity strong when you need it most.

Keep Practicing

Of course its not possible to improve your mental attention in a single day. Even professional athletes are constantly fine-tuning their abilities to improve their attention spans.

Start recognising the influence being distracted has on your life. If you’re having trouble achieving your objectives and find yourself being distracted by minor issues, it’s time to start valuing your time more highly.

Eliminating Distractions

While it may seem self-evident, people frequently underestimate the number of distractions they have around them.

Such invasions could be in the shape of a loud radio in the background or an annoying co-worker who stops by your desk to chat all the time.

It’s not always as simple as it sounds to eliminate these sources of distraction. While it may be as simple as turning off the television or radio, dealing with an interrupting co-worker, spouse, child, or roommate may be far more difficult:)

Setting aside a specified time and place and requesting to be left alone for that period is one technique to deal with this.

Another option is to find a quiet spot where you know you’ll be able to work uninterrupted. A quiet coffee shop, the library, or a private area in your home could all be suitable options.

Finally, ensure you are well-rested before the activity and utilise positive ideas and imagery to combat anxiety and concerns are two more tactics you might want to try to minimise or eliminate internal distractions.

In conclusion, be vigilant of your time, focus on one thing to completion and ask others not to disturb you when you have important tasks to complete. Take planned breaks and when your mind wanders consciously return your attention back to the activity at hand.

With constant practice and awareness you’ll be a force to be reckoned with. Though many people will find you a little strange for not being as distracted as them:)
