Online: Focus: learn how to concentrate

I want to reduces distractions

It's hard to stay focused when you're working on a something that demands your complete and utter attention and your co-worker can't stop telling you all about his weekend activities. Or when you're constantly checking your smart watch for new messages, even though you're supposed to be studying and shouldn't pay attention to things that draw your attention away. 

When you need to be focused and productive, you shouldn't be distracted. However, sometimes you don't even notice what distracts you. Did you know that whenever you get distracted it takes on average 25 minutes (according to research) to gain back your full attention on the task at hand. When you increase awareness of your internal and external distractions, your focus and ability to concentrate will increase as well. 

In this online course you'll investigate and develop techniques and methods to stay focused and become more productive. Your lifestyle, which plays a major role in how well you can concentrate, is taken into account as well. Focus is the magic word!
