Creative Work, Distractions, productivity
Asked and answered by the wonderful Frank Chimero:
Anonymous asked: ‘How do you maintain focus (on work, dreams, goals, life)?’
You do one thing at a time.
You might be amazed how many times—and over how many years—a given person can ask this same simple question, hear that same simple response, and still find themselves casting about for the great and arcane “secret” to achieving real focus.
But, this is pretty much it. Mostly.
Although, I must add one important “Step Zero,” borne of my own tedious experience.
Before you sweat the logistics of focus: first, care. Care intensely.
