11 Lifehacks To Help You Focus

Looking for tips on how to focus better while working? In the following graphic, from Funders and Founders, we share 11 ways how to focus.

We are a big fan of lifehacks. What is a lifehack? A lifehack is "a strategy or technique adopted in order to manage one's time and daily activities in a more efficient way." (Oxford dictionary)

How to Focus:

  • Keep food on your desk. Glucose help your brain focus.
  • Turn off the phone. Most phone calls are not urgent.
  • Get a good chair. There is a reason bosses don’t sit in cheap chairs. (Don't sit all the time either! Stand up while working too.)
  • Time yourself and see how much you did in 1 hour.
  • Shut off everything that you are not really using.
  • Clear your desk completely.
  • Put on headphones. Classical music or no music is best for focusing.
  • Make a list. Make it short.
  • Reward yourself. If you get focused, be proud of yourself.
  • Frame a picture of your goal. And look at it every morning before work.
  • Bring your pet with you. They help you focus.

Question: Have any lifehacks you'd add to this list?
