It’s easy to lose focus at work, especially if you need to search for something on your computer or do research on the internet. You can start opening files, reading posts and forget what you were searching for to begin with. So Use Alerts to Stay Focused.
Set a timer for 10 or 15 minutes. (The clock app on your phone or a kitchen timer will do.) When the alarm sounds, pause. Are you still on task? If you are, re-set the timer. If you’re not, shrug it off, regain your focus and then re-set the timer. Either way, begin again.
