My phone is on perpetual do not disturb so that others won’t distract me. I put my phone in a small bag and slightly out of reach so I won’t distract myself.
- What do you do when your task takes longer than 25 minutes?
- I need to isolate myself to be able to do deep work. It makes me seem less social and also a bit disconnected from family at times during evenings and weekends. It is hard on them, and I feel torn between work and family demands. How do you negotiate with your family to come to an understanding that you need to do this?
- How do you stick to the scheduled time? If the blocks get bigger than 45 minutes how do you keep going? How do you stay productive?
- How long should I do Deep Work?
- How to keep your focus when doing a long task?
One of my creative ways was to put my Earphones in as if I’m listening to music and turn my tv off . This usually helps me to zone out and focus on the main important thing , which for me right now is my property and causality exam coming up soon. I get so lost in my studies that when I realize how late or long I’ve been studying and pull the headphones out, I’m in such shock I stayed in a nice quite place the whole time . Make sure there are no distractions anywhere and if you do need a little noise try to listen to something your working on or studying something to keep you still focused and motivated. Make sure the volume is low and you can hear yourself think. I hope this was helpful
I actually put in headphone and put on a podcast and it really helps me to focus on my work. Also I sometimes move to a space where I am by myself so I can really focus.
Well, I love to accomplish things. So I made it a game. When I allow something or even some distract me I lose points my goal whenever I am doing my deep work I have to have 100 point so I can get a snack.
If I need to focus, I’ll put on distant thunderstorm sounds! The sound of rain is calming to me, but the spread out bouts of thunder freaks me out, so I feel relaxed while working but also pressure to finish the task at hand so I can turn it off.

Actually, I'm not sure if I know of any? I normally just go in my room or play music when I'm exercising. Maybe I should ask this question?
