Life is distracting.
Work, spouses, kids, social media, current events, happy hour, sports games, gym time, and so many other activities pull our attention in different directions. The pressure to multi-task is greater than ever before and this doesn’t even include the constant thoughts we battle to stay engaged.
Little time is available to be quiet and alone with our thoughts and when we do find a few minutes to exhale, our brains are so accustomed to running a million miles an hour that we can’t focus on our priorities. The same devices we credit for organizing and running our lives are responsible for training us to have the attention span of a goldfish. In a time that praises busyness, many of us have forgotten what it’s like to pause, take a good look at what is most important and carve out a path to those goals.
