How to concentrate on your studies?
I’m going to be talking to one of the world’s leading authorities on how to manage your attention, and focus on what really matters to you, Professor Stefan van der Stigchel.
We’ll be walking through an entire day of concentration to show you step-by-step what you can do to help maximise your focus, including:
- “Attention rituals” – learning from Darwin and Beethoven
- How to take effective breaks
- Designing your environment for maximum concentration
- Is it OK to listen to music?
Stefan leads the AttentionLab at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, and is a regular face on national television and radio in the Netherlands, as well as speaking on prestigious conference stages around the world.
You can find out more about Stefan’s work at his personal website: https://www.stefanvanderstigchel.nl/
For a highly practical guide to maximising concentration, I highly recommend his book “Concentration: Staying Focused in Times Of Distraction”, available at https://geni.us/concentration*
“How Attention Works”, a guide to the psychology of attention, is available at https://geni.us/attention*
