How to improve concentration: 3 hardcore ways to stay focused while working from home or studying

Having talent is nothing rare, talent is everywhere, everybody has talent. What makes a person successful is hard work and consistency. But to be a hard worker you have to consistently put that effort in day after day, even when you don’t want to. The only way I know how to do that is to force a mindset shift into “the zone”.

Finding well-paying online writing jobs is often quite a taxing endeavour to accomplish, especially when you have no formal qualifications, like me.

You can read about how I successfully dealt with these issues in my previous post on how I discovered how [...]
