When I need to focus on computer work, say, writing a blog post, or gathering digital images for a show entry — I find I focus a lot better if I turn off my email — I either go off line or close the program.

Much has been written about managing the distraction of email — whole books even — and Tim Ferris, author of the 4 Hour Work Week, has some suggestions on the topic. Okay, he doesn’t make suggestions, he has some very strong directives.

What do you do to help focus and get any work done? Please post a comment and let us all know!
