Despite what gets said, we millennials do not have shorter attention spans than the generations before us . Or at least, we don’t all have shorter attention spans. Me? I do. I am not a person who can sit down to a task and work as it for even an hour straight. So over the years I’ve figured out the little tricks that keep me able to be quite productive despite lacking the ability to focus on a single task for a long time. And because I figure that I’m not alone in this, I thought I’d share them here.
