with yet another timer.

Focusing is essential to getting things done and even more so for learning new skills. But our focus depends on a lot of variables and is affected by a huge variety of events. It depends on how we slept, the time of day, what we ate, our emotional state, our stress level, our energy level and the list goes on and on.

Focusing and keeping your focus can be difficult.

But one tool that helps me consistently to focus every day is a simple timer.

But the timer has to be built around three main principles: visual and intentional timeboxing, your focus is flexible and taking time to rest.

So let's try flexible timeboxing.
