Welcome to the final episode of this 3-part series on Focus. Now, for the majority of us, going online to get things done is imperative. Whether it’s business or personal.

Today is all about building a fortress around your focus. Focus really boils down to 2 things: minimizing distractions and maximizing your creative energy.

In this episode Chalene shares with you the necessary steps to put your brain in the best possible environment for focus.
This episode is all about organizing your brain; how to take the science behind how the brain works, and how to use that to turbo charge your focus and efficiency.

It’s no wonder it’s so hard for us to remember the simplest task. Chalene shares with you what you need to know about how your brain actually works so you can be more focused and more efficient.
