Pay Attention to Your Hat

Hats by Makins Fur - Felt/Leather Braid Fedora - The BronxPsychologists confirmed what I pretty much knew all along: “that even when people try to focus on a task they tend to lose concentration within 40 minutes, and sometimes as little as 10 minutes.” Blood flow to the brain was measured (the more, the higher the concentration level), and researchers say study results can be helpful for those whose jobs require intense concentration on monitors or television screens, including the military, security workers, and air traffic controllers.

OK, first of all, 10 minutes is pretty good.

When I have to concentrate on which hats to choose for next season’s catalog, I begin by procrastinating. Then I get side-tracked and find something else to do (like trot off to the club to show off my latest happenin’ fedora). It’s only after my pre-ordered supply of stickers comes in (stickers of my smiling face, thanks) that I can really get down to the task at hand: trying new hats on that handsome mug.

When the subject is the person who’s working, utter, unbreakable and timeless concentration is a given.
