Where else in our day can we push distracting things to the edges a little more? How can we focus more. It feels like a battle on three fronts…
- Tools: We start with an app that helps us focus, but there is always another way to interrupt ourselves, knock ourselves out of flow.
- Mindfulness: We need to be aware of how our brain is working and what is happening when we are focused and when we are interrupted or we distract ourselves.
- Habits: We need to re-wire our brains to avoid distraction and hit peak performance when we are working in a focused way. We need to be able to *decide* when to be diffuse or open.
You can’t solve this stuff with apps. Not just apps, anyway.
