Maintaining Focus on the Go
If you’re always on the move, these tips can help you find your focus even when you’re without a permanent work base:
- Work in intervals of 60-90 minutes.
According to Inc., your brain uses up most of your body’s glucose in this time, so take a break and recharge before you burn out. If you’re getting on a flight, avoid thinking about work while going through the airport and refocus once the plane’s in the air.
- Learn to control frenzy.
You can train your brain to focus in times of frenzy, which has long-lasting impacts on the quality of your work, even after the source of the distraction has been removed.
- Use a full-screen app, like Ommwriter and Instapaper.
Zen Habits recommends simplifying your computer screen to create a distraction-free work environment that allows you to fully concentrate on the task at hand.
