How do you stay focused?

Deadline for this story: End of Day June 9

This is part of a weekly list post series, where we ask entrepreneurs questions outside of our standard catalog. We’ll publish this on IdeaMensch and Medium and potentially other publications about a week after our deadline. You’ll receive a link back directly to your project, company or organization’s homepage. Also, we’ll support every post with a mini (paid and organic) social advertising campaign.

According to a recent study by Steelcase, people are more distracted than ever before.  The study of 10,000 workers from 17 different countries found that the increased use of technology in the workplace has made it more difficult for staff to stay focused, with the average office worker distracted once every three minutes. We have all been there. As an entrepreneur, it can be very costly to be distracted. Because if you’re not getting the work done, it might not get done at all.

So, what are some strategies you use to stay focused?  What’s your best tactic to be productive and stay productive? How do you avoid or turn off distractions? How do you get deep work done?
