I don't know about you, but I have a tough time keeping to one project. Whether it's sewing, writing, crafting, reading, podcasting, or learning new hobby, I'll hop and jump from one to another.
It's not because I get bored, but because I need to learn new things. It might be a way to challenge myself, push to see if I could do something successfully...
Perhaps it's just my self-sabotage to only procrastinate?
A couple of years ago I came across this adorable App called Forest.
If you are looking for an effortless way to help you focus on projects, or a way to keep yourself from checking your phone when you should be doing something else, this App just might do the trick.
I quickly fell in love with it, the more I used and more points I gained. I "bought" more and more trees and shrubs, adding flowers and fountains to my growing collection.
Sure, you can get into your phone, but you'll kill whatever plant you had decided to grow for a set time and now you have a brown, crispy skeleton of a plant in your lush garden.
When I have a writing date with girlfriends, I set my phone in the middle of the table, each one of us choosing a different plant or flower each 20 minutes we set to not talk, just write.
My podcast co-host has jumped on the app too and she'll send me screenshots, which helps get my butt in gear to sit down and focus on my projects.
It gives you a little boost of confidence and a pat on the back when you view your garden.
That's right. I grew a full moon tree, wisteria, and apparently one and a quarter watermelon this afternoon. Who knew I could grow a perfectly cut slice of watermelon, all ready to go.
Do you have any tricks to help you focus?
