    What tools/tips/tricks do you use to stay focused and in the zone during the grind? Anything from listening to music to Pomodoro techniques ect. I want to know what works for you.

    Motivation stickers on my walls, writing down my goals on whiteboard, rest every 1-2 hours for a few minutes, stretch my legs and that's about it. :)

    Ditto. Stay off of BHW if you don't want to spend your whole day reading threads like this one.

    @SeoWrecker Lmao at the vid.

    @topic
    You need to remember yourself why are you trying to get the green stuff in the first place. Is it for that luxurious car you ever wanted? Get a nice wallpaper on your desktop so when you are about to call it quits you will look at your goal ( car ) and stay focused.
    Bonus tip: Add a hot female with the car it should give you a extra pump, pun intended.

    Personally, I feel that listening to music helps me concentrate well.

    It's not just that, it's that I've been sitting here for the past 5 hours stalking a member here because they did something conniving to me, so now I have a folder on my desktop filled with screenshots of their activity on Black Hat World for the past 5 hours (as well as a several other screenshots I'll keep if they try something else), including a few screenshots where they reported my giveaway thread (the giveaway doesn't violate any rules) at 12:37am after viewing it at 12:36am, where they subsequently submitted it 15 seconds later before searching the forum and visiting the Black Hat SEO section 7 minutes later. I know it's not healthy, but I can't help myself! :kev:

    But yes, I think I need a break from Black Hat World...

    Edit: my post was oddly related to the thread topic. If you're wondering how I stay focused like that, read this.

    Listening to the the sound of rain (http://rain.simplynoise.com/) helps me to concentrate when I'm learning something or reading an interesting article.

    Weed - simple and effective if you don't go overboard, at least for me.

    Basically you want to archive the state of "mental flow". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_(psychology)

    It comes down to removing all the little distractions like friends contacting you, Facebook and all this other shit. Try to control your emotions. If you get into fight with somebody, it can mess up you entire day (focus) especially if you cant let go of something. Be present. Read "Power of now" by Eckhart Tolle.

    Humans have limited attention span (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attention_span), so you really need to take a break from time to time. But avoid going to Facebook. You don't need others life stories to fill up your brain. Look out of the window or take a walk.

    Few cold showers per day helps a lot too!

    Good luck on staying focused!
