A lot of us will agree that listening to the correct type of music is great for boosting your focus and getting work done in a much shorter period of time. However what you need to know is that this music you listen to needs to be of the right variety for you to get the right level of focus. For example, if you are listening to something with a lot of lyrics some people may not be able to focus properly and will find themselves distracted by the lyrics. Others will find that they can only focus well on nature sounds and the likes. What you need to do first is to identify what kind of music works the best for you and try variations of that. Avoid any music that will distract you from your work. So the next time that you plug in your headphones in the office make sure that you do so with the right choice of music.
One more mistake that people tend to make and that takes a negative toll on their work is the fact that they start the day without any kind of schedule at all. Having the right schedule where you prioritize according to the level of urgency or importance for the day and then tackle each task until they are all completed is the best way to go. It also gives you very clear direction and sort of puts everything in a clear perspective from which you can now handle one thing at a time. Having no schedule and no order will ensure that you just do bits and pieces of many different things and that nothing really gets done in the end. Therefore plan your daily schedule always and see what a big difference it makes.
If you are somebody with a really cluttered working area who feels like they cannot focus you can rest assured that the clutter is what is getting in your way. Keep your desk free of unwanted items and keep everything that you need organized and accessible and you will see how better the day gets.
