“I wish I could stay focused, but I can’t.” “It doesn’t matter what I do, I can’t concentrate for more than X minutes at a time.” “I’m so frustrated by my distractibility. Why can’t I focus throughout the workday like everyone else?” These are some of the most common thoughts I hear from my clients when it comes to concentration.
