    Some "specialists" in my country says that in order to improve concentration we must leave the internet. I say that reading books is the best strategy.

    If you are trying to improve your concentration saves you need to add more points to your constitution or take the Warcaster feat on your next ability score increase.

    Jokes aside, I find that meditation before taking on an intense task or even daily meditation in the mornings before I get my day started has helped me concentrate on things better. Are you having trouble staying focused on what you are working on or getting started?

    Attention deficiency disorder. I have problems with both getting focused on a task and staying focused. It always suddenly hits me, I feel pressure in my head that just drives me crazy and drives my thoughts away.

    I was diagnosed with that too. I bring up meditation as a way of strengthening the mind, but it's tough for folks like us. Not impossible though. What's important is that you are able to forgive yourself for not being able to focus. We can still get things done, but not when we are frustrated with ourselves for something we have little control over. One thing at a time, one good decision at a time.

    If we are talking about getting work done, I tend to start working on anything I can. Sure, I want to focus on getting my enemy skills done or this analysis for a bug but maybe I can't right now. So I'll work on something that I can ease into like this spreadsheet I'm using to identify balancing issues. Doing anything will help you feel that you're getting things done & ease you into being focused on work in general.

    That said, no one can focus 100% on something for a full 8 hours outside of some serious training & conditioning. I walk around my work & see tons of folks watching videos or looking at news articles or FB... yet, we all meet our deadlines. It's okay to relax & 100% focus isn't necessary to still be productive. All anyone can really ask of you is that you give it your best.

    I love physical work, because I don't need to think. When I have something that requires the power of mind, I'm unreliable. I can keep focus for 8 hours... Or for 5 minutes. Lately with fatigue from night shifts my problem has increased considerably though and my schedules are much less reliable as well.

    Sometimes I say to myself that I'd love to have an artificial brain that would provide me with reliable computing power. This way I'd finally be able to advance my programming skills.

    @Poryg, I was diagnosed too. Meditation helps you a time to get out from the stressful situation and start over from the present, so you do not get burn out programming lol.

    @Poryg, if I am corrected, you said you like to a gym right. So yeah, exercise helps reduce impulsive and the way to talk with random people at the gym lol.
