Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do a similar thing to active questioning... I'll often ask myself before starting a task: "Does this REALLY matter?" and base my decisions from that mind space. Great point.
Thanks for sharing that tip!

Hi Ernest, this post is definitely very insightful. I do struggle with a horrendously short attention span, and so I'm always trying out ways to get myself to focus, or to try to work within my 7-minute chunks.
I find that disabling notifications is a good tip for me, since I'm particularly sensitive to phone notifications. I place my phone face down (to not see the blinking LED light), and place it on a soft object (so I don't feel the vibration). And it actually works.
Apart from the helpful tips you've posted, I do think that active questioning works for me as well. Just as I consciously find myself drifting off to check my Twitter tab, I ask myself, "Do I really need this? Does this contribute to the mission?" (I like to gamify my work as 'missions', like that of a secret agent).
Whenever I stop to question myself, I usually end up returning to my work, so it works to an extent. It might work for others as well.
Thanks for writing this post! Will put the tips to good use.
