Mono-focus is really important for creative people

Mono-focus is really important for creative people, because creative flow IS focus. Creative flow is all about being present, focusing on your task, and letting the momentum of the process sweep you up … you and your task become one while you are in flow.

You can’t be in flow if you try to multitask. Your attention and energy are divided when you try to do more than one thing at a time. For instance, if I am talking to myself in my shower about what I need to do that day, I forget if I’ve already washed my feet! Because the part of me processing my day wasn’t present when I was washing my feet.

And conversely, you can’t get into creative flow if you’re having difficulty focusing. That’s why you feel blocked if you are worried or anxious about something else going on in your life. If that’s the case, do some journaling or meditation or prayer so you can press pause on your worries long enough to get some creative work done.

Mono-focus is so important for creative people! What are some of your favorite ways to improve focus?
