I often feel that the hardest part of my programming life is to stay focused in a distracted world.

  • Facebook, Twitter and a whole industry is working hard and smart to make us Hooked notifications junkies
  • Group Chat is making me sweat
  • Most of us are still working in Open Offices despite studies clearly pointing out that it's a false good idea.
  • There are so much cool tools I could try out
  • There are so much projects I could launch

How well do you cope with all of this?

Personally I have tried a lot things, and they help, but it still feels like a never ending battle.
