How to Focus and Be More Productive by Dr. Hallowell

Dr. Hallowell, world-renowned for his 30+ years of work as “the Focus Doctor”, now identifies the underlying reasons why people really lose their ability to focus at work—where many of today’s adults feel distracted and unproductive. He explains why commonly offered solutions like “learn to manage your time better” or “make a to-do list” just don’t work because they don’t address the deeper, underlying issues of mental distraction at play.

The following 10 tips, each 3 words long, are part of the book. Please let me know if you find them helpful! – Edward Hallowell, M.D.
