One of the things I hear from many people is they want to improve their ability to focus. If they just had a distraction-free environment, they could get the right things done. Well, I’m writing this from a distraction-free environment—one of those booths they have at airports where you can make video calls and have privacy.

If you find yourself feeling overly fatigued, take a momentary break and come back when you feel more energized. With the right energy reserves, you can overcome distractions and get things done effectively.

Is There Really Such a Thing as a ‘Distraction-Free’ Environment?

Focus requires more than just the physical space

It’s important that you have the physical and mental energy to actively focus on something. If not, you’re going to become distracted and tired. You might even take a nap when you’re trying to concentrate. It’s important to ensure you have enough energy.

If you find yourself feeling overly fatigued, take a momentary break and come back when you feel more energized. With the right energy reserves, you can overcome distractions and get things done effectively. With enough practice, focus will become easier and more natural over time.

Tiredness causes a dip in your concentration and attention span. Staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, and eating regularly are all great ways of ensuring your body has the necessary resources for focus.

If you’re too vague, saying something like, “I need to work on a project,” your brain will give you a thousand other things that you could do besides work on that. Instead, make sure that your objectives are specific and measurable. Examples would be statements like, “I’m going to create a rough draft outline of the project,” or, “I’m going to create three objectives for the project,” or, “I’m going to make a list of all the people who need to be involved in the project.” Have a specific goal and outcome for that time when you want to focus. Planning out specific objectives in advance will help you stay on task and increase your productivity so you can get things done.

Physical and mental fatigue can lead to difficulty in paying attention and retaining what you’re working on or learning.
