I’ve been trying to be better about where I divert my attention and what I allow to distract me. Email is a huge nuisance, but obviously essential to my job. I’ve been surprised how productive I’ve been by not checking it for even an hour at a time.
This video also validates my theory that yoga is a very effective training tool for focusing your attention. I believe that working in the web industry, it’s necessary to frequently disconnect to save your sanity.
