I like using a prompt on Thursdays, so I headed over to Discovery and found

One suggestion was to talk about a sound, smell, or other stimulus that makes it easier to focus.

For me, the stimulus has to be internal. I have to feel that interest, that drive, that get-up-and-go to be able to focus on something. If I don’t have that, nothing works. If I can get into the Zone, I can often stay focused for hours on end. The next day, this might happen, but it could easily be for a different project.

To end this bouncing from one project to another, I’m thinking about trying a routine. If I focus on my goals, then maybe I can finish a writing project. If I focus on what I love about the project I need to be working on, then maybe I can find that internal stimulus that will focus me and put me right in the middle of the Zone.
