Distractions can derail your entire day, if you let them. Research shows that it takes an average of 25 minutes to get back on track after being distracted. This can be especially detrimental for CAD professionals whose field requires long periods of concentration and accuracy.
Some distractions simply can’t be easily removed; therefore CAD professionals must take the plunge to sharpening their ability to focus. Read on to learn some tips and tricks to maintain your focus and concentration while working in CAD.
