Just Do Five More - The Art of Concentration

Love this article from The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/oct/14/the-lost-art-of-concentration-being-distracted-in-a-digital-world. It reinforces what I talked about in a recent post on multi-tasking. No need to summarize the article here because you can read it yourself.

The article suggests a dynamite way to improve concentration that I’m going to start using immediately because it is so easy to understand and implement.

The ‘money shot’ quote:

This is a simple way of learning to concentrate better. It goes like this: whenever you feel like quitting – just do five more – five more minutes, five more exercises, five more pages – which will extend your focus. The rule pushes you just beyond the point of frustration and helps build mental concentration. It’s a form of training as well as being a way of getting something accomplished.

“Do Five More” is my new mantra.
