  1. Oooh so exciting! And I'm the first! With working 40+ hours a week and taking 18 credits my senior year in college, focus and energy are something I value quite a bit. Lately my drug of choice has been Excedrin, which is so bad for me, but so good. It keeps the migraines away and gives me a little boost of energy. Oh, and sugar is always good too. Gotta love my chocolate (you should see my "snack drawer" at work.)

  2. How do I stay focused at work? By reading the blogs, of course! And since (I am from Pittsburgh, I like lurking on all the Cleveland blogs out there.) Have an energetic day!

  3. What's cooler than Free Starbucks? That's easy: Free Dunkin Donuts, because from what I hear, DD coffee reigns supreme. But, I guess you're not giving away DD stuff. And ironically I don't drink coffee. So, just consider this comment a whole lotta noise and not an official entry. =) xoxo

  4. I read blogs and news articles. I also watch news videos (Kathie Lee and Hoda, actually).

  6. Focused, what!? Because I'm a student and I hate the library, I do all my work at home where there are distraction temptations up the wazoo. To stay focused I set myself small goals, such as "I won't check email or Facebook until I write at least 2 pages of this paper," or "I won't look at my g-reader until I've read for 20 minutes straight." I always keep the goals manageable and it works really well for me.

  7. That's quite the disclaimer! And I can't believe that stealth swith is a real thing.

  8. I harness the power of my unruly bladder to stay focused: whenever there's a task I'm dragging my feet on, I chug a glass or two of water, and tell myself that I cannot get up to go pee until I've reached a certain milestone. It definitely has a way of getting me moving.

    I'm sure this method would be doubly effective with coffee instead of water...

  9. i stay focused by downing coffee all day long.

    if i could get the punch without the mass amounts of coffee brewing, i would be in heaven.

    i loved the starbucks VIA concept, but a cold version would be great!

  10. Freeze.

    Somebody bring me back some Starbucks, please.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I focus by updating Twitter and Facebook constantly and listening to ESPN 850 WKNR.

    Of course, once I hit the real world in a month I'll probably legitimately focus.

  12. I'm a huge Doubleshot fan. I keep a stash at home to drink with breakfast before morning meetings. I seriously always picture myself as Popeye when I drink it and sometimes say glug, glug, glug out load like it's my super duper can o' spinach. I'm a nerd...I know.

  13. This is appropriate, because I don't recognize you if you're not carrying a Venti around the office.

  14. While a coupon for Starbucks would be awesome, what I would REALLY appreciate would be a coffee shop here in MidTown Cle. That's for you, Starbucks people. Hope you are listening.

  15. Focus with espresso! And lots of it! angela.goff@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  16. Also, does this come with a lifetime supply of the green plugger stirrers? Our starbucks has been continually out of those. And ive been spilling way too much.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I second that, Christina M.K.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ohhh, Starbucks. I love Starbucks. They are my life source while I do this whole career change thing. I love your blog. I wish school didn't eat up so much time so I could enjoy Cleveland as much as you do! :)

  19. @ That Kind of Girl

    I DO THE SAME THING! Hahahaha. I drink a lot or water, or a few cups of coffee or tea, and then I FORCE myself to finish what I was working on before I allow relief. That's incredible. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Though we may become victims of UTIs. :P

  24. How do I stay focused? Hmm, good question...

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't have to stay focused at the office because... umm... I don't have one. I just need to stay focused in class and I definitely have not figured that one out yet.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The disclaimer didn't mention that 'family members' were restricted....right? I guess I am in.....if you let me.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I answered this on Maxie's blog yesterday but here's another thing I do at work to stay awake:

    -tie up my co-workers and place tape on their mouths
    -listen to music to block everything out

    One of the above is completely false.

    ReplyDelete
  28. If it was not for coffee I would be face down on my desk everyday at work. Coffee is my crack.

    ReplyDelete
  29. i stay focused during the day by reading the plum first thing in the am, that way i am not wondering what the hell you are doing all day!

    ReplyDelete
  30. How do I stay focused? I was going to ask you for an idea...Actually, coffee helps. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. why does Starbucks hate Canadians?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, I hate you for switching it up. Now I can't leave the same comment I left on Maxie's.

    What if my answer is that I DON'T stay focused at work?

    OK, kidding. Putting some music on always helps me concentrate better, surprisingly.

    ReplyDelete
  33. how freakin' cool is this!!

    OK... here's how I stay focused at work...

    Umm. wait. I DON'T stay focused. Cracks me up... you think i FOCUS at work!?!? Hahahahha. Love it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ok, but for real? I stay focused because if I don't, my work day will be much much harder. Stay focused. Stay organized. Eye on the prize. That's it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is the third one of these I'm entering. How do you people get to do so many awesome giveaways? Jeepers! (That's right, I said jeepers...)

    I stay awake at work by reading blogs. That might be sort of sad, or sort of awesome, but it is what it is, ha.

    ReplyDelete
  36. how i stay focused:
    1. coffee

    ReplyDelete
  37. I stay focused and get the most work done when I have the show "Charmed" playing on the tv. Strange but true

  42. I stay focused when I have classical music on in the background.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I stay focused by sleeping. . . wait. . . I guess that would have the opposite effect because I'm not really focused per say. . . I drink coffee, eat a little something, or go for a brisk, quick walk to get myself to stay focused. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Free coffee? Yes please.
    I usually go for a little walk to get rid of the i-don't-want-sit-still anymore syndrome.

    ReplyDelete
  45. 1st. So happy you said "y'all" and not "ya'll". I HATE it when people say ya'll!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Mmmm Starbucks! Always a tough choice this time of year - Grande Soy Chai Latte- OR- Pumpkin Soy Chai Latte? Maple Walnut Scone-OR-Egg/Tukey Bacon Sandwich? Me want coffee and food now :)

  47. That's a pretty hardcore contest ya got going on there. I love the disclaimers.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I usually get a glass of cold water, it helps me concentrate

  51. Alternately, I'll give myself 5 min to goof off (play tetris, check personal email, etc), and then I usually focus better

    ReplyDelete
  52. I haven't been doing a great job of focusing lately so I REALLY need this prize!

  53. I stay focused with a To Do list and things to put on it. I need DEADLINES... I'm not a plan-aheader. If it's in the future, it'll get done the day it's due. I'm trying to get better but it's not in my DNA.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm not sure if there's some guideline here that I have to talk about coffee in order to leave a comment. But who am I to argue?

    I drink coffee. I wash my face with coffee. I bathe in coffee. I rinse my mouth out before bed with coffee. Coffee and I were once desperately in love, but then coffee killed my brother, and now it is my sworn enemy. When given a choice between gold and coffee, I will take...the gold. And use it to buy more coffee.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yeah I'm still hoping and praying that I win the free Starbucks... my world has been incomplete without starbucks in my life as of recent. Stupid wallet... it's so empty.
