In order to overcome the problem of not being focused, Schwartz (2007) suggests the reduction of interruptions for a short period of time and allocating that time to fully concentrate on one task. I think if my team and I are ever going to turn our situation around in this game, we will definitely have to work on the efficiency of our decision making processes; possibly by decreasing other distractions and really concentrating on the task ahead of us. I am hoping that by becoming more concentrated and efficient in our meetings, we can achieve better results and I will feel less like I am wasting my energy on something that doesn’t pay off; and this way hopefully I will be more willing to dedicate my efforts towards this course again.
