1. Intro

So, what exactly is concentration and how do you achieve it? A good place to start is by looking at the famous focus infographic. This infographic shows you how much time you spend focusing on different activities. It’s a good summary of the principles of focus and concentration.

2. The Challenges of Focus and Concentration

The link between focus and concentration is well-documented. In one study, subjects were asked to memorize a series of digits (e.g., 100, 200, 300). Some subjects had a hard time focusing on the digits while others could focus with ease. The researchers concluded that people need different types of mental resources in order to be able to concentrate or focus better.

There are two common ways of thinking about this:

1) People have different levels of mental resources. A high level of concentration might require low-level resources (think about how hard it is to reach a degree of deep focus when you’re running on adrenaline), whereas a focused attention requires a more sophisticated set of tools (think about the difference between sitting deeply focused and not at all focused).

2) Concentration is an ability we have to use our mental resources. For example, if you try really hard to sit at your desk for 10 hours straight, you will literally exhaust your “mental resources” since your brain will become worn out by constantly trying to create new memories (or too many memories for that matter). On the other hand, if you go for just 5 minutes every hour or so, then it isn’t as easy for your brain to make new memories which helps keep you focused.

No matter what view you take on this topic, one thing is certain: if you want to maximize your productivity and can’t get it done without the help of distractions like Facebook Messenger or Youtube videos — then it’s not going to happen fast enough given your current level of mental resources (e.g., lackadaisical attention span).

3. Why it’s Important to Master Focus and Concentration

If you want to improve your focus and concentration, here are some things you should know:

Mixing up your day-to-day activities with activity-specific tasks will help you get focused and concentrated. You can also make use of a timer or a task scheduler to make sure you don’t get distracted by something else.

If possible, set aside time each day for work. As the saying goes: “time is money”. If there is time to do the important work, it should be enough time to give your brain a chance to concentrate and energize itself. For example, if you’re going to have a meeting with a client or a project manager at work, put in more time than usual on that specific task so that your brain can be properly stimulated at the start of the day.

It’s important for people with ADHD (attention deficit disorder) – in particular those who have difficulty focusing on detail – to try not spending too much time on activities that are irrelevant or boring. Avoid reading boring books and magazines, listening to background noise or using any other noise-canceling headphones when working. Instead, focus on what matters: what you’re doing now so that you’re able to concentrate during the workday and when you’re at home after work.

4. How to Control Your Brain to Improve Focus and Concentration

Learning is a challenge for all of us. We are aware that we aren’t naturally gifted students and don’t want to be, but it is an inevitability. At the same time, we crave the ability to learn — any ability — and find ways of getting there.

In this post, I’d like to share with you how I’ve worked out a strategy for improving focus and concentration while studying. It turns out that these techniques are very useful not just at studying but also when learning new things:

Finally, a word on devices: while these techniques can be applied to any device — whether you are reading on your phone, surfing on your laptop or using your PC — they have proven most effective using mobile devices as discussed in this post .

5. Conclusion

One of the best ways to improve focus and concentration is to develop a system that mimics the way people naturally do it.

In this post, we will talk about 10 methods to do just that.
