Are You Highly Focused or Easily Distracted?

When it comes to work or school, we all have projects, assignments, reports and deadlines to deal with. We have things to type, research to make, books to read, and emails to write.

Some of us can stay focused and get through a to do list even when there are people chatting, music blaring, food being passed around, or sirens outside - (like me). Then there are others who can pay more attention, and get more accomplished when they are completely alone, with no sounds or people to distract them.

So I want to know, when it comes to getting your work done, are you highly focused or easily distracted?

If I'm working on a project at work (particularly if it has a tight deadline) I'm extremely focused. However, if it's slow in the office, I am very easily distracted.

I'm typically highly focused but there are some moments of distraction that slip in every once in a while.

It all depends on what I'm doing. I mean, if I am having fun at work or doing something I like, I can stay pretty focused. But if I am doing something really boring at work, then i come on here and get all destracted! Thanks popsugar!

My only distractions are the web, popsugar, photoshop, and various other fun programs, that keep me from doing my work. Somehow the work suprisingly gets done, it must be magic !

It depends. When I'm working on something, I'm all in and totally focused. But I'm not one of those people who can do work while at Starbucks. I get far too distracted by people watching and get nothing accomplished.

I have my good days and my bad days. Bad days seem to be more prominent then the good ones. When I find myself being easily distracted I make a to do list of what needs to be accomplished that day, or that week. Or, I take a walk around the office, outside so when I come back I will be more focused. I feel if i am doing a project or task for a long period of time , my mind starts to wonder. SO, I try to mix things up in my daily routines.

I'm very easily distracted. I have adult ADD unfortunately people say its not the worse thing to have but I hate it. I try to focus very hard because I'm very hard on myself I always try to do a perfect job but it takes a lot of effort.

I am pretty easily distracted with anything, even when I'm in a quiet secluded room with no one there, my own thoughts distract me and I can't focus, lol! The only time I can completely focus is when I am riding a horse (which I love to do, so of course I can focus, haha). When I ride sometimes you might have to yell at me or poke me to get my attention, hehe! :-)

I'm pretty focused at work and at school (when I was in school), although its still easier for me to get things done when I'm in my office with the door shut.

I'm somewhere in the middle. And it depends on how badly I need to do whatever I'm doing.
