In this modern age of technology, there is no end to distraction. If you want to stay focused you really have to try. There’s no escaping the world to go write a novel unless you put forth the effort to get away from every distraction known to man. (And even then it’s a test of discipline.)
I read an article on Medium awhile ago now, but in gist, it says this: while training for the Olympics, the British rowing team asked themselves one question about everything they did: Will it make the boat go faster?
So…I want this hamburger. Will it make the boat go faster?
I want to stay out late and drink. Will it make the boat go faster?
I am going to go to the gym. Will it make the boat go faster?
You get the idea.
