1. Clean your environment of aggressions

– Protection against toxic triggers

2. Prevent wondering
In this approach, you set a limited time frame to work on a task. It’s clear. You can’t cheat. Instead of going for a huge session of 3 hours, you divide it into small parts, like 6 x 20 minutes, with goals for each session. This rhythm frame you to be efficient and swift because 20 minutes
is short and stopping close to complete a goal is frustrating. The most famous time-method is the Pomodoro technique. In this technique, you do short sessions of, for example, 20 minutes. At the end of each session, you must stop no matter what and take a 5-minutes break, and then restart.
Writing down thoughts
It may sound simple, but this hack is formidably efficient. While you are working, keep a piece of paper and a pen around. Each time a thought pops to your mind, rather than expanding it and let it distract you, write it down, with the intention to come back to it later. You may never come back to it, but the point is to let your brain knows that you are going to take care of it, so he doesn’t further harass you. After doing that for a few sessions, you’ll realize that your thoughts stop trying to disturb you.
Focusing is really energy consuming, it soaks up calories and use your full mind space.
Poor sleep, lean alimentation and stressful environment won’t allow you to focus on your best. This lack of resources will kill your creativity and courage, slowing you down in everything you do. It’s like running a formula 1 competition with a flat tire, it’s inefficient and dangerous.
