5 Ways to Get Back on Track After Losing Focus (as a multi-passionate)

D'Ana Joi, who goes by her middle name “Joi,” is a multi-passionate, educator, community builder, and content creator. She believes having many passions is a gift, not a burden and she’s on a mission to rewrite the narrative around “choosing one thing” being the only path to success. Through her e-book, courses, and upcoming podcast, Joi teaches creatives how to make friends with focus, overcome overwhelm, and step into their Multi-Passionate Mastery.

We all get off track and lose our focus from time to time. Whether a world event jolts us out of our normal routine or we’re having a super emotional day that throws us off of our game, it’s bound to happen. 

Rather than thinking about getting off track as a bad thing, it’s time that we normalize this as a part of our creative process because it’s unavoidable.

Losing focus shouldn’t be looked at as an overly negative part of our process as multi-passionate creatives, because getting back on track can be a gift.

Having a tool kit you can reach into to help you get back on track will help to build your resiliency. Even better, each time you find your way back after losing focus, you’ll gain more insights as to how to show up for yourself and the business you’re creating in a long-term way.

Before we go into how to get back on track when you’ve lost your focus, consider this:

It’s okay to give ourselves permission to fall off track from time to time.

It’s okay to pause and feel our feelings, even if that means we lose our focus momentarily because we can always get back on track.

(Psst! If you’re ready to FINALLY step into your identity as a focused multi-passionate who’s ready to make an impact and share their gifts with the world, then check out my Finally Focused E-Book for multi-passionates)

In the past you may have told yourself that losing focus, no matter the reason, is unacceptable or just an excuse standing in between you and your goals.

Has that perspective supported you in bringing you back into a state of focus, or made it more difficult because of the shame you’re subjecting yourself to?

Yeah, I thought so.

Today- we’re going to look at losing our focus as an opportunity to re-emerge with more clarity.

5 Tips for Getting Back on Track After Losing Your Focus

1. Forgive Yourself

If we’re anything alike, you’re probably much harder on yourself than you would be to a friend or a child.

What do you mean you didn’t batch all your emails for the month, plan your Instagram content, meal prep, and finish take that online course you were supposed to complete TODAY? What a loser. 

Harsh, right?

Remember: Even when you’ve lost your focus, you are still worthy. You are still whole.

Take this as an opportunity to practice forgiving and loving yourself through this time.


2. Recall the Last Time You Felt Focused

Go look back at the last project you felt proud of. Connect with that energy of your past self. Use that reflection to remind yourself that you are capable of focusing and seeing a project through to completion.

Take this a step further by writing a list of each small step you had to take in order to complete the project.

Read this list out loud to yourself and feel a sense of pride knowing that even if it doesn’t feel like it right now- there is a version of you that has access to focus, on you’re on your way back to her.


3. Reconnect with Your Why

One of the reasons that losing our focus can be a good thing is that it offers us the opportunity to reconnect with our why.

Why are you working on this project in the first place? If you didn’t care about it, then losing your focus would be no big deal, but if you’re reading this blog post we both know that’s not true.

Make a new vision board or do a visualization exercise to connect with your ideal life. One of my favorite visualization exercises is taking an “imagination bath.” As you sit in the tub, envision your ideal life in as much detail as possible. The water will literally absorb your vision as you soak it in!

Feel free to get creative with this step, but don’t skip it.


4. Do a Brain Dump

Usually, when we lose focus, our ability to take action simmers out and as a result, there’s a ton of thoughts and open-ended tasks swirling around in our minds.

Get it all out with a brain dump in order to clear some much-needed mental space. It’s like taking your bra off after a long day, but for your brain.

Grab a sheet of paper and list out everything you’ve been holding in your mind. It doesn’t need to pretty, just get it out! Once you’re done you will feel an instant sense of relief. It’s like taking your bra off after a long day, but for your brain!

Once you offload all of the information that was taking up space, it will be easier to regain your focus.


5. Set Yourself up for Future Success

As you work through the steps above to get back on track after losing your focus, take note of the processes you found most supportive. Then, reflect on what systems you can put in place to support you in the future.

  • Do you need an accountability partner that you can vent to when you start veering off a track?
  • Is there an affirmation or mantra that you’d like to continue using?
  • Was there a playlist that helped you zen out and zone in?
  • Could breaking your project up into smaller tasks make it feel more achievable, even on your worst days?

As you answer these questions you’ll set yourself up to feel more supported the next time you’re thrown off-center and lose your focus.


Let’s Recap

  1. Forgive yourself
  2. Recall the last time you felt focused
  3. Re-connect with your why
  4. Do a brain dump
  5. Set yourself up for future success

See? It turns out losing your focus isn’t such a bad thing after all. After going through these 5 steps, you’ll better understand your needs as a multi-passionate creative who is creating a better relationship with Focus.
