The Improving Concentration IQ Matrix and accompanying 20 page eBook explores how to improve your level of concentration throughout the day. The better you’re able to concentrate on a given task, the easier it is to learn, to manage unhelpful thoughts, to boost productivity, and to direct your mind towards a single objective or goal. To improve concentration, however, takes consistent practice and effort. Use this mind map as a handy reference tool to develop effective habits-of-mind to improve your focus and concentration throughout the day.
The mind map specifically breaks down the benefits of developing your concentration muscle. It describes how to improve your concentration while working on tasks. It highlights how to strengthen your concentration over time. And presents you with several concentration exercises you can practice to develop this critical soft skill.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Improving Concentration mind map.
- Benefits of Concentration: The first branch of this map explores the benefits of concentration, how to develop concentration, and the key things required to help boost your level of concentration throughout the day.
- Concentrating on Tasks: The second branch of this map provides you with a six-step process that will help you boost your level of concentration while working on a specific task. The steps of this process include uncluttering your mind, clarifying your objectives, preparing your workspace, removing all distractions, breaking tasks into manageable chunks, and assigning time limits and deadlines. Explore this process in further detail within the map.
- Developing Your Concentration Muscle: The third branch of this map examines a variety of things you can do each day to help you maintain a high level of concentration while working towards your desired objectives.
- Concentration Exercises: The final branch of this map outlines several exercises to practice each day that will help improve your level of concentration and ability to focus on the task at hand. Only through consistent practice and by actively applying yourself to work through these exercises, will you adequately strengthen your concentration muscle.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for improving your productivity and ability to concentrate for extended periods. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively strengthen your concentration muscle. Once strengthened, it will help improve your productivity and ability to stay focused on the task at hand for longer periods.
