- Do you do this every day? I set it for 3 days a week as days with many meetings can make it much harder to concentrate.
I put away distractions and just start on one thing. Pretty soon momentum kicks in and I can go for a while. A pad of paper or note taking/reminder app goes a long way for not letting those stray thoughts derail you.
I keep the Fabulous Moment going with earbuds in. I hear nothing but the soft music, no distractions. It works for me so far. Hope this helps.
I set aside a time on specific days to tackle the work. I tell myself I only have to spend that amount of time on the assignment or task. Then I make sure I’m comfortable in the space I choose to work in. Finally I add ambiance by putting on a focus playlist from Spotify and making sure that drinks and snacks are set up/ available while working.
