A summary of all the concentration principles and techniques seen thus far, and how to combine them for an efficient and effective training regimen.
If you want your stronger focus to serve you in real-life situations, you need to learn to move freely between changing targets as needed – as opposed to “locking in” your attention to a single unchanging target.
Perhaps more than anything else, what you do when you “awaken” from a distraction spell decides whether your progress will be fast, smooth and rewarding, or slow, inconsistent and frustrating.
Once you’ve learned how to generate a state of effortless concentration, it’s time to learn how to sustain it. Methodical intent planting is the fast way to long-lasting focus.
“Focus on the process, not the end result!” Ok, but HOW exactly do you do it? Micro-tasking gives you a simple way to be more present to your tasks, thoughts and actions, it lowers your stress levels and increases your resilience.
Concentration is the art of deliberate oblivion: its essence is letting go of everything except your current target.
