…hear yourself think

…don’t try this at home…

Few people are looking for more distraction in their lives.  I doubt any of you have heard someone say, “Gee, I wish I could focus a little bit less.”  While a little distraction may be a good thing from time to time, for the most part we all wish we could find the secret to focusing.

I’ve found it: distract yourself.

Mildly distract yourself, I should say.  A new study has found (as they so often do) that If you’re looking to focus and be productive, ambient noise is your friend.  The murmur of conversation, sound of scurrying baristas should be just what you need.

It sounds like you need a Starbucks.   Lucky for you (odds are) they’re just around the corner (each and every one).  You may have thought that a Starbucks every half-block was a bit overkill, little did you know just how helpful they were trying to be. They give and give and give…

Of course if Starbucks is to “chainy” for you I’m sure  a locally owned cafe (with free WiFi) would work just fine.  Enjoy you’re independently operated focus.

Just promise me one thing. Buy something.  Don’t be one of “those” people.  No one likes a focus mooch…you know who you are.
