Defeat Distractions

  • Fight technology with technology. Example: Install an app that lets you customize what apps and websites you can access during dedicated periods of deep work.
  • Listen to the right music. Background music that’s familiar, repetitive, relatively simple, and not too loud can aid focus.
  • Take charge of your environment. Make your workspace work for you. Optimize your current workspace for focus by eliminating distracting items.
  • Declutter your workspace. Make an appointment with yourself on your calendar to organize your office.
  • Increase your frustration tolerance. Train yourself to focus with hard tasks.
