This caught my attention - Studies show that we are interrupted every three minutes during work and it takes us 23 minutes on average to get back to the original task. The real kicker is that more than half of the distractions were completely self-inflicted.

Return on Attention! This caught my attention - Studies show that we are interrupted every three minutes during work and it takes us 23 minutes on average to get back to the original task. The real kicker is that more than half of the distractions were completely self-inflicted.

 

Some simple, easy to implement tips to help stay focused on the work that matters most. Easy to say, harder to do everyday, but I am going to try...

This is so unbelievably important, especially if you have employees! Even as a dedicated entrepreneur, though, I find myself struggling with distraction. I know it's even worse for people who don't have as much motivation to perform.

 

Plugins that shut off access to certain sites are helpful, but I often find I get the most done when I block my internet access completely (though that's not an option for every type of task).

Informative visual that shows how a great idea is turned into an IPO. The original idea generator gets less than 20% of the profit.

For me there's nothing quite like a well designed, quality printed piece.


Don't get me wrong, the web is a great medium, but print--it's got permanence. Well designed, and high quality printed items have a their own gravity (for lack of a better word-- note I didn't use the word 'gravitas'. If we were having lunch and I used that term, you would have full right to slap me).


I just came across OpalPrint.co.uk and I like their work so much it hurts my face.


Their site is gracefully and elegant, but my god their work dropped my jaw.

Yep decent work, but they've spelt "Sterling" incorrectly here: http://www.opalprint.co.uk/work/stirling-corporate-brochure
