Before you read further, we'd like to ask you a simple question: have we got your full attention?
Probably not. And that's especially true if you look at this in your office. Finding focus is something almost everyone has to deal with. And research figures show that in the workplace, we are having more and more trouble keeping both internal and external stimuli at bay.

Professor Gloria Mark of the Department of Informatics at the University of California says email, social media, notifications, and countless other digital distractions are eroding our ability to concentrate on individual tasks in the 21st Century. Back in 2004, workers switched their attention every three minutes on average. In 2012, that was down to one minute and 15 seconds. By the summer of 2014, it was an average of 59.5 seconds.
The bad news is that our brains are easily reprogrammed: if we are frequently interrupted, our brains will start interrupting themselves to stick to the pattern - even when there are no external interruptions. The neuroplasticity of our brains is also what saves us here! Looking at the protocols of people studying the art of focus and concentration (like Daniel Goleman, Gloria Mark, Cal Newport, and Chris Bailey), you can build and regain the skill of hyperfocus and concentration.

Each program follows a simple and effective evidence-based approach to skills mastery:

Assess yourself

Reflect on where you currently stand and discover the practical components necessary for mastery of this skill. 

Learn sub-skills

The skill is broken down into 3 essential sub-skills, each of which is the focus of one learning workout. You'll do 1 workout every 2 weeks over the next 6 weeks. 

Talk about it

Have an insightful conversation with your colleagues about how to implement each sub-skill in your day-to-day.

Build micro-habits

Along with each workout, design your own micro-habit to start putting your learning into practice on a daily basis.
