Is the ability to focus key?

In our world of instant gratification, apps, sound bytes, and so much more, how can we hone our focus?  The myth of multi-tasking is just that – a myth.  Studies continuously show that multi-tasters are less focused and produce lower quality work than people who stick to a single task at a time.  Furthermore, distractions do impact performance (think that grating construction noise outside of your office window or the co-worker who takes it up herself to drop by in the middle of your flow.)
