    "Fundamentals for Focusing"

    The book is organized in a simple, logical structure. It is divided into three parts: understanding focus, creating an environment for focus, and employing tactics to focus. It is important to experiment and select the techniques that work for you. The common causes for a lack of focus are lack of interest, negative emotions, poor organization, low energy levels, and lack of control. The top 10 obstacles to staying focused are mental fatigue, restlessness (boredom or feeling of anxiety), stress, interruptions, lack of mental clarity, unresolved problems, poor planning, physical clutter, social media (unable to resist checking apps), and your smartphone (when it rings or vibrates).

    Some elements to consider when creating an environment that will help you to fight distractions and concentrate:
    1. Have sufficient lighting and take advantage of natural light
    2. Minimize background noise that breaks your concentration (e.g., wearing headphones to listen to classical music or white noise to drown out conversations around you)
    3. Be comfortable (e.g., fit of your clothes, height of chair and desk, and position of the monitor)
    4. Ambient temperature (environment that is too warm or too cold temperature could affect productivity)
    5. Air quality (get fresh air)
    6. Scents that may improve mood - peppermint, cinnamon, pine, rosemary, basil, citrus, lavender, and cypress
    7. Organize your workspace to allow you to focus on your work
    8. Have a clock visible to track the time you allotted for tasks

    There are 23 tactics that can help improve your focus, such as set a timer, have five daily tasks, exercise, capture ideas quickly, identify triggers that lead to distractions, commit to single tasks, batch process similar tasks, arrange calendar into time chunks, disconnect, meditate, and create routines.

    "Good tips"

    Good overall tips. Great narration. Really enjoyed when the author stated what their preferred action was. I did learn new tips to old knowledge, like listening to classical music pieces in loops so as to not draw attention to the music. Probably has a Pavlovian response in your brain.

    "Redundant - not one new or original idea"

    All the information in this book has been written elsewhere, often more elaborately and extensively.

    The writer repeats himself several times, reiterating concepts that were just explained in a previous chapter. This make the reading feel superfluous at times, which is not a good thing considering the very short length of the book.

    I was hoping to find refreshing material and new insights on how to improve my focus. However, nothing that I didn't already know was offered in this book.

    Only read this book if you have never ever read anything on productivity and focus before. Perhaps high school students or people in college might benefit from reading this book if they haven't read anything on productivity or how to maintain focus.

    The narrator narrator did a decent job, he's easy to listen to.

    The book's short and concise, and not too expensive either which is a plus.

    "Good intro"

    I have done most of this with good effect. Useful and concise. Great for a newbie to learning how to g et themselves into flow.

    However for people more advanced. Perhaps seek something that focuses on retraining your focus, for example you can't always have complete silence, and what's more it is not usually available when you are applying the skills you've focussed on, eg exam situations, competitions and interviews.

    Good start point though
