Organize Your Workspace for Optimal Focus

By Kris Powers | December 18th 2021

Optimal focus comes with no distractions, right? While we might imagine that it is the key for focus, we don’t live in a perfect world. We have co-workers, family, kids and animals that are usually around us while we try to get things done. For example, my cat is currently walking across my keyboard. Our phones are constantly lighting up, someone is talking too loudly, or the television is playing in the background.
