The next time you're ready to begin a project stop a minute, take a deep breath, and focus all your energy on it. To experience this peaceful beginning you'll need to first clear your mind by putting other concerns to the side for the time being.  You may even want to offer a brief prayer and commit your work to the Lord asking for His help and guidance.  Then, try to fully relax your body by taking a few deep breaths to release tension, you might even do a few stretching exercises.
Okay, now it's time to get busy and give it your best!  After you've been working on a project which needs this complete concentration, you'll need a break or a rest period.  Perhaps a brief walk, some fresh air, something to drink, or a quick chat with a friend of colleague will revive you.  Refreshing pauses enable you to keep plugging away at that important task.
Concentration often means sticking to it until it's finished.  Sometimes, however, it's best to move on to another project.  For example:  After a couple of hours you may find yourself distracted, getting no where fat, and the feeling that this could eat up your entire day.  It just may be time to regroup and work on something else for a refreshing change of pace.  When you resume the task you put aside you will probably find it's done in no time at all.  Begin to know yourself and your concentration saturation point and decide if a time-out is in line, then return or if a complete change of activity is in order.
Finally, learn to limit yourself.  When you feel pulled in every direction and you've lost concentration, you've usually become less effective.  Diluted attention due to too many activities often results in distraction little is accomplished and you're worn out!
