6 Steps to Get into the Zone For Business Success
You've got a goal you need to accomplish; perhaps you're working on your next 90-day plan. It is work that you want to do, and it contains enough challenge to keep you engaged without making you feel anxious or doubting your ability.
The best way to get this done is to get yourself into the 'zone', and when you do, you find that you will complete the work quicker than you thought possible.
So how do you get into this zone? Here are six steps to get into the zone:
Step 1: Time
You should ensure you give yourself enough time to complete each goal or task. To have enough time means that you will need the right environment.
Step 2: Environment
You will need a comfortable and distraction-free environment to work in that allows you to remain calm. You should have all your necessary tools and equipment to hand, as the last thing you need is to have o go hunting around your office or workshop for something mid-task.
Step 3: Focus on the Process
While working towards a result (goal), you must focus on the process. By doing this, you can remove all expectations and restrictive thought patterns to release your creativity and problem-solving skills.
Step 4: Engage Your Emotions
To be in the zone, you must be alert and fully engaged. Negative emotions will only hamper your ability to get into and remain within the necessary flow state.
Step 5: Action
Once you start working on a task, it is crucial to maintain a state of action and keep the momentum going forward. It's essential not to stop and allow negative emotions such as self-doubt start to creep in.
Step 6: Practice
There is a saying, "Practice makes perfect", which is relevant when you get into the zone. Practising your optimal workflow state regularly will allow you to create your own set of rituals and cues that will help you get into and stay in the flow state.
Over time these will become second nature, and your body will respond by entering the zone more quickly and easily.
If you want to get into the zone and make positive things happen, then you can use the six simple steps above to help you. Achieving a more fulfilling and enriched life is yours for the taking.
