Things that you pointed out for distraction are the challenge for me to, might be for most of us. Your thought inspiring detail to cop up with them are commendable.
I also apply the idea of putting on a fan, only to get a sound sleep. To concentrate in work I tend to play some music – any music without lyrics.
For visual inputs I try to follow exactly what you do. I think that really helps.
To me Mobile Phone was a big distraction. Now I generally keep it on silent and make sure it’s away from my work desk. In fact before starting to work I finish talking to people about things that are important for that day.
I think Social Networking apps and website are also enemies to work. I do not keep any browser or OS plugins. Do not keep these website open in any browser tabs while working. However I make sure to give time for this before and after work, everyday.
I am very poor at work planning when it comes to get together with friends and family. This is an area where I think my work compromise, most of the times. I love to hang around with friends and colleagues. That’s where I am trying to improve – “learning to say no to parties and drinks as much as possible” unless there is just no work commitment.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts :-)
