Compartmentalize Don’t Focus.

By Mark / October 6, 2008

First things first, don’t confuse the Focus I am talking about here as the type of focus you should apply to individual tasks.

Look around your local town who is the most successful business man there? I’ll bet you one thing he has more than one business interest. Take Richard Branson for instance how many businesses does he have?  The reason why most successful business men are as successful as they are is because they Compartmentalize.

Compartmentalization is the ability to be able to switch from one area of focus to another whether it is in the course of a day, a week a month or a year.  The mistake that many of us make is that we take focus to to the extreme and just concentrate on one form of income so we’ll build adsense sites all day long or create products and forget about other opportunities.

The human brain doesn’t function well like this, when you are out driving are you solely focusing on what your feet and hands are doing or what music is playing on the radio?  No you brain is handling all sorts of tasks.When you were at school did you have math on a monday, Georgraphy on a tuesday, history on a wednesday? Or were the lessons spread throughout the week.  Did you have trouble focussing on math because geography came just before it?  I doubt it.

This is how we learn. To be successful you should compartmentalize your day/week In the morning build sites in the afternoon promote older sites. Have a morning of product creation followed by a bit of article writing. After all Variety is the spice of life. Avoid saying this week i am going to build 20 sites. I’ve tried this approach and failed at it, as soon as I tried compartmentalization then I achieved much more.
