I am amazed that my son gets any homework done on his computer.
He is one of the most disciplined kids I know, and is a machine about coming home from school and getting his homework out of the way. I take absolutely no credit for this behavior— I know that, even as an adult, I struggle to stay focused while doing my work, with the rest of the Internet party just a click away. This cartoon by Asher Sarlin kinda captures it out perfectly.
What do you do to stay focused when you’re writing or doing your job “near” the Internet?
