Whether you’re working from home or working in the office, we’ve traditionally focused on time management to being productive.
But, what I’m discovering more and more is it’s not a “time management” issue but more of a “focus” issue.
Think about how often you may be distracted at home? E.g. kids, household chores, etc.
Or how often are you distracted at the office? E.g. impromptu meetings & calls, colleagues asking questions, etc.
Here’s an interesting exercise to try out, track how much time you actually spend focused on a particular task (without interruption).
You don’t need more time, you need more focus.
