How many minutes in a day can someone really focus? This is a very important question because if you look at the attention span of the average person, it is decreasing every year. Recent research says that the average American now has the attention span of a goldfish, namely 8 seconds!
If the attention span is really 8 seconds what does that then say about How many minutes in a day you are able to focus? This leads to the question of how many times in a day somebody is able to re-focus. Meaning that he starts again his concentration on the task at hand.
The problem is that the amount of times that an average person is able to regain his focus, is also getting lower every year. This is because the huge amount of distractions everyone is facing. These distractions make you forget what the topic was that you were focusing on.
So, how many minutes in a day is someone able to focus? It is hard to say of course, but my bet is, that it is as little as 30 minutes per day! And the minutes in a day someone is really focusing is probably also decreasing year over year. So, where does that leave humanity if, let’s say in 10 or 20 years from now, human beings are hardly able to focus?
