Why building a mental firewall keeps you from becoming distracted

Follow Dave on LinkedIn

Ever get distracted by random thoughts floating around in your mind? Scattered thinking can destroy your focus.  Most people know about a computer’s firewall. The security software that blocks unwanted viruses that slow your computer down…or even crash it.

The same can be done for your mind! You need to build a mental firewall to block distracting thoughts. It sounds harder than it is, I promise. After some practice, you’ll do it subconsciously.

Are you ready to regain your focus?

Your focus goes hand-in-hand with your productivity. The good news is you can build your focus up like a muscle. I share my own “workout” routine in my LinkedIn Learning course, Improving Your Focus, here: davecrenshaw.com/focus.
