    Focus

    How do you concentrate?

    I'm looking for advice on how to get a stronger sense of drive to make myself a happier and more productive person.

    Practical advice is welcome.

    I think the majority of CF users are on the site because of a severe case of ADHD (myself included). I think you are barking up the wrong tree.

    Re: Focus

    I want to start with the basics, like how do I train myself to get out of bed in the morning instead of repeatedly hitting the snooze alarm?

    I would buy an alarm clock without snooze.

    Re: Focus

    I think understanding yourself is a key. One of my personal weaknesses is procrastination, so realizing this, I try to take immediate action on things- the less I am looking forward to something, the sooner I do it. I think it also really helps to identify clearly what you want. I'll quote Tony Robbins on this one, "He who has a strong enough why can bear almost any how."

    Re: Focus

    Get clear on why you should get out of the bed in the morning. I made it a standing rule that I would not hit the snooze for any reason. Once I am up, I am up. I think getting into a position in sales that was straight commission also helped a lot. You've pretty much got to hustle to eat.

    Re: Focus

    I've learned to quit worrying and to just love who I am....

    Seriously. I no longer try to "improve" myself. I have plenty of positives that I can exploit. But you have to tailor your life to address this, and that's hard work.

    Re: Focus

    I used to be a habitual snoozer... but now I moved my alarm to my phone and place the phone across the room.

    So far (about a month and half) it has worked great. My motivation is to get to work earlier so I can get more done and leave at a reasonable time.
