Download to read offline

Focus and productivity are closely linked. The more time spent focused on a task, the less time lost to distraction. But intending to stay focused and successfully staying focused are two different things. That’s just a natural limitation of the brain.

The good news is that there are quite a few techniques for overriding the brain’s limitations and maintaining focus in even the most distracting workplace environments. This presentation summarizes 23 of those techniques.

These slides are based on our article “23 proven techniques to boost focus,” which provides additional detail about what science has to say about maintaining attention and focus. Read it here: https://blog.entefy.com/view/396/23-proven-techniques-to-boost-focus
