Can you get your ability to concentrate back?

The list of workplace distractions is endless, especially in this very troubled period of health emergency when you find yourself alone in front of your screen: from a lack of shared discipline to top-priority emails and social media addiction. Beating these timewasters is one thing: developing your ability to (re)focus on tasks that create (genuine) value is another!

The endless sources of distraction can make uninterrupted focus seem like a pipe dream. But, with a few proven strategies and discipline, you can develop your ability to concentrate – and watch your performance and sense of achievement soar!
