How can we stay focused?

The cacophony of our world offers a multitude of opportunities for distraction from the critical issue on which we must be concentrated. The idea of multitasking is really an illusion because our minds can really focus on only one thing at a time. Practically, we may have several computer applications open yet be frustrated about how to prioritize our time on them.
Focused behavior, not unlike listening, cannot really be taught. Like a good listener, we must make a conscious, deliberate commitment to concentrate on our topic and discard conflicting information that interferes with our endeavor. However, with practice we can improve our ability to focus intently on the topic or project at hand and increase our sense of satisfaction in the process.
