I know I'm fully engrossed in a project when I lose track of time. It does take practice and a conscious decision to get my busy brain into that space (noise-cancelling headphones, putting away phone, muting email for a set time, etc.), but when it happens I always feel a sense of completion when I come out of that flow, even if wasn't able to finish my task. It can be exhausting, though, so it is best for me to have set time frames (30 mins or an hour) to work within or to chunk my work into specific tasks I can complete in less than an hour so I don't burn out too quickly over a work (or play!) day.

I know when I am really concentrating because I am not thinking of anything besides the task at hand! When fully concentrating, I can solve the problem at hand in an efficient and calm manner. I am not worried or concerned with other things!
- How do you do your best work?
- How long should I do deep work?
- How do you commit to something you really don’t want to do? Example: An essay 😂
- How many times a day should I have Deep Work.
- What do you consider deep work.
- Should you take a short break every 20-30mins of deep work?
- How to build focus for such a short time even. I get distracted after every 7 minutes?
- How do you decide what is work you should be thinking of when thinking of deep work?
- What do you do when it’s time to work but yr really not in the mood.
- How do you keep your focus on a task that’s necessary but boring?
