Maintaining your focus in a noisy and distracted world can be tough. There is so much pulling our attention in every direction that it seems almost impossible to focus on the tasks that are truly important.
From social media to text messages and calls and even people stopping by to talk, there is always something that can take our attention away from getting work done.
The result is that we feel like we are behind. When we spend most of our day checking notifications on Facebook or responding to unimportant emails, we find that there is very little time left to get projects and other work done.
This can leave us feeling overwhelmed and may drive us to overwork ourselves, while feeling like we get nothing done.
