    It is important because you can be more productive, and focus clearly on the task before you. Our ability to concentrate is central to our ability to write effectively, whether we work alone or as part of a group.

    In order for your work to be productive, you will need to focus your attention on your writing. In a distraction-prone business environment, much of your writing will be done while colleagues are talking on the phone, having face-to-face conversations as they walk by, and possibly stopping at your desk to say hello or ask a question. These unavoidable interruptions make it even more important to develop a habit of concentrating when you write. 

    Our minds can multitask and perform several tasks simultaneously, but we can also get easily distracted. We can get sidetracked and lose valuable time away from our designated task. Our ability to concentrate is central to our ability to write effectively, whether we work alone or as part of a team.

    Concentration is very important because for writers to be productive they must work when they are alert, ready to work, and can accomplish tasks with relative ease.  Writers should adjust their schedules so the writing task can be tackled at times when you can concentration and focus clearly.  Dedication and perseverance are required.
