I must admit, I am a very distracted person, I hardly can concentrate. If I am working on one task, I am already thinking about the next one. It is not that I don't try, it's just difficult for me to concentrate. Especially, considering that I am a student, this lack of concentration is really bothering me lately. Therefore, finding this was a blessing!
I have to say, this helped me! And so many things were right on the spot, for example, the disadvantages of multi-tasking. I am from nature a "multi-tasker", and everything mentioned, from the short concentration span, to the rushing, etc, is true. It made me realize I really don't gain anything with this, and I need to start concentrating!
Another topic I loved was my bad little habit: Procrastination. I wasn't expecting to find it in the book, but thank god it was. It's a hard habit to kick (well, at least for me), but the tips are amazing and I have started putting them in action.
Well, long story short, I enjoyed the book, and I feel that I have now control to concentrate better. I can only recommend it!
1) Understand Your Potential and Work Capacity. In order to meet deadlines, you have to first understand your potential, your skill level, and your work capacity. How fast are you and how efficiently can you perform a task without affecting quality? What is your capacity for staying focused and do you have a lot of distractions in your environment? These are critical considerations which should be addressed before accepting a project. If you find out that a task is much more involved than you originally thought, negotiate a deadline extension sooner rather than later. Either way, never take up a task without having a clear understanding of what you are actually capable of performing.
