Day 12

“An eagle can catch a fish in the ocean of impossibility, because he pursues and focuses on only one fish.” — Debasish Mridha

Welcome to Day 12 of the Mental Focus Challenge! You’re almost ready for a fully focused life of productivity. Did you increase your challenge yesterday? How did it go?

It might be tough at first, but stick with it and you’ll be more focused later! Remember how difficult the first few challenges were? Now you’re a pro at those!

Let’s get to today’s challenge!

Challenge of the Day: Complete Your Challenge Combo

It’s highly recommended that you start to increase the difficulty of your challenge. It’ll take you out of your comfort zone, and that’s the only place where you can improve. Either way, it’s more important that you simply continue to complete your challenge combo every day.

Remember the first day when you tracked your behaviors? It’s helpful to write down your progress so you can keep track of how you’re improving. Along with completing your challenge combo, you should also write down your progress. Here are some things you should note:

  • How much time am I devoting to each challenge?
  • When did I complete the challenge?
  • Was I productive right after the challenge? Was I productive a few hours after the challenge?
  • Was I focused today and completed everything that I wanted to?
  • How can I make the challenges more difficult?
  • Was I more productive today then I was yesterday?

Take these notes every day so you can keep track of your productivity!

App of the Day: Elevate (iOS | Android)

You should give your brain a workout every day! Elevate is another great app that does just this. The 2014 App of the Year tests your writing, listening, speaking, reading and math skills with plenty of games.

For example, you’ll be asked to find the grammatical error in a sentence, or calculate 20% off of a certain price. Use this app to elevate your cognitive skills!
