Have you ever been in the middle of doing something important, got distracted by a flashy notification and then got stuck down a rabbit hole? Me too.  We’ve all become like Dory from Finding Nemo. 

In a world currently full of notifications and instant gratification, one of the most difficult things for me (and many others) is to stay focused on the task at hand

I had a great conversation with Jason Khalipa about this a while back.  Khalipa won the CrossFit Games in 2008, is currently the founder and CEO of NC Fit, while balancing his personal life of being a husband and father to two children (one of which recently defeated Leukemia).   

Needless to say, Khalipa has a lot going on.  His rule for success: have an AMRAP mentality

AMRAP is a CrossFit workout acronym that means “as many rounds (or reps) as possible.  For example, do as many rounds of 10 push-ups and 10 sit-ups as you can in 5 minutes. 

Khalipa extends this philosophy to all areas of life. 

The goal of this mindset is simple.  Be productive and present in each segment of your life. Be where your feet are

In a world where there is a lot of gray area between your kitchen, bedroom and “office”, the AMRAP mentality can help you to stay clear and focused today.
