Our Take: In the past few months, we have been researching the power of focusing on one thing at a time and systemising routines that can help achieve this. It simply means when a task is finished and complete you move on to the next - extrapolate that to a bigger goal! For women like us, who often juggle multiple roles and responsibilities, this approach is not just beneficial—it's essential.


Here are five compelling reasons from our in-depth research why focusing on one thing and systemising routines can be a game-changer in achieving your goals:

 1. Enhanced Productivity and Efficiency

When you zero in on one task at a time, your mind is not scattered across various tasks. This undivided attention boosts your efficiency, allowing you to complete tasks quicker and to a higher standard. Firstly developing a system is a task in itself however once you get it right the first time, this can be used systematically across all of our goals and takes this efficiency a step further. By establishing a consistent yet systematic way of doing things, you reduce the time and energy spent on deciding what to do next or how to do it, leading to a significant increase in productivity.

2. Reduced Stress and Overwhelm

The attempt to multitask and the pressure of handling several tasks without a clear system can lead to overwhelm and stress. Focusing on one thing at a time simplifies your workload, making it more manageable and less daunting. Moreover, routines create a predictable and structured environment, which can significantly lower stress levels. Knowing exactly what you’re doing and when can be incredibly calming and reassuring. For women who are are still discovering what those goals are, perhaps some soul searching is needed first to understand the highest version you see of yourself and how you will go about getting there - this is our next blog topic so stay tuned!

 3. Higher Quality of Work

Quality suffers when your attention is divided. Concentrating on a single task allows you to give it your full attention and best effort, leading to higher-quality outcomes. Furthermore, when you systemize your routines, you establish best practices for each task. This not only ensures consistency but also allows you to refine and improve your methods over time, thereby continuously enhancing the quality of your work.

4. Better Time Management

Focusing on one thing at a time helps you to complete tasks faster, while systemised routines enable you to predict how long tasks will take more accurately. This combination greatly improves your time management skills. You can allocate your time more effectively and make realistic plans for your day, week, or month. This planning ahead can also help you to carve out time for relaxation and self-care, which are crucial for long-term success.

5. Greater Satisfaction and Achievement

There's a profound sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that comes from completing a task to the best of your ability. By focusing on one thing and systemising your approach to your goals, you're more likely to achieve them. This sense of achievement builds confidence and motivation, propelling you further towards your next goal. Moreover, the clarity and control you gain from such a focused approach can lead to greater personal and professional satisfaction.

Best Part: In conclusion, while the temptation to multitask and tackle everything at once is ever-present, the benefits of focusing on one thing and systemising routines is a method we believe should be rooted. Not only can this approach lead to better productivity, reduced stress, and higher-quality outcomes, but it also fosters better time management and a greater sense of achievement. For women looking to navigate the complexities of modern life while achieving their goals, embracing focus and systemisation could very well be the key to success.
