If you are easily distracted at work, review your seating arrangement. Your failure to concentrate may be due to the presence of fast-flowing, distracting energy that may be transformed into shar chi, or sharp energy, if it is not addressed.

To improve your ability to focus, sit with your back against the wall. The wall should not be too close, or you may feel like being pinned to your chair, which will also impair your concentration. If you have your own office, try to reorient your desk. You must have a clear view of the entrance, able to see everyone who comes in.

If you sit in an area where there is a significant amount of movement and activity, such as being close to the pantry, then it will be extremely difficult to focus on your work.

Do not sit against the window. The reflection and movement behind you will create disruptive energy. If you can't reorient your desk, consider using blinds so that you can simulate a wall supporting your back. Do not face the window either for your attention will often be drawn to what is happening outside. You should not use blinds if you face the window as staring into a blank wall implies that you will be constantly staring at obstacles.

Avoid sitting next to sharp edges. The shar chi associated with these corners will make you feel unsettled. You can try moving your desk so that you are sitting parallel to the pillars, thereby removing you from the line of fire. Note that using indoor plants in these circumstances has limited benefits.
