How to Focus
January 31, 2007 1:00am CST
A professor of mine once pointed out that the average attention span in the United States can be measured in single-digit seconds. Fifty years ago, it was close to an hour. I know you can improve your focus by limiting distractions, like tv and the Internet, but I would like to be able to focus for very long periods of time--even with distractions. Any suggestions?
