How do you control yourself enough to get deep work done?

I'll get my headset. Set up a goal and go for it. I'll always have some unexpected interruptions from my coworkers or the environment. I ask if the can wait or I ignore the chat until I fish what I'm doing.

The most difficult part is to keep going the in the afternoon after lunch break.

The only effort that you need to make is to sit down and launch that 25-minute deep work timer. The rest will follow. The brain works better under time restrictions.

For me it isn't really a matter of control more about finding interest in what I am doing. Once the world absorbs me, it is easy to focus and I want to do much more than the allotted time.

First I make notes of what distracts me. Then I make sure I remove these situations bedor I start. For example, I make sure I have a cup of coffee, my notifications are turned off, and I am in a space that I won't be interrupted.

I use a timer and a the do not disturb button on my mobile. On top of that I use a power statement to avoid getting distracted by my email.

When it doesn t come natural I use a timer to check if I'm on task every 5-2£ depending on how avoidant or retractable I am.

I would ask the same thing to you haha. I think doing it soon after a workout seems best to me, because you’re riding the wave of feeling good about yourself and your abilities post-workout, so you want to continue that momentum and accomplish deep work with truly no distractions. I also use an app to block Facebook on my PC and go on airplane mode on my phone.
