The thumbnail of the video mentioned in the post.

Hey Friend;

This is the day 17 post of ship30for30; you can find the others on my X profile.

Have you ever found yourself lost in a sea of distractions, wondering why some people seem to possess a laser-sharp focus?

Our attention is not just a valuable resource—it's the cornerstone of productivity. Yet, reclaiming it is often an uphill battle, with research suggesting it takes us up to 23 minutes to refocus after an interruption.

There are a lot of books, blog posts, podcasts, and videos on the subject of focus and attention

And honestly, I've tried reading, listening, and watching most of them.

But recently, I came across this video from Ryder Carroll Founder of the #bulletjournal method and the NYT Best-selling author, here's why I would recommend to watch and and study this video

1. Foundational Principles for Focus

Ryder Carroll's video offers more than just an overview of focus issues; it breaks down the essential concepts and principles like clarity, attention, context switching, and the 'Hemingway effect' that are crucial for maintaining attention. Grasping these ideas is vital for focus mastery.

2. Effective Bullet Journal Tactics

Carroll shares actionable strategies such as Rapid Logging, Intersititional Journalling, and Daily Logging, providing easy-to-implement tools that significantly improve everyday focus.

3. Mastery of Presence

He highlights the role of presence, a skill that, when refined, deepens our engagement with tasks. His practical tips help cultivate a mindful approach, turning attention into productive flow.

For novices, this video and the resources mentioned are a rich mine for learning about focus.
