Just a quick one…
Am I the only person that’s noticed a really sharp decline in most people’s ability to concentrate. You know, to REALLY focus on something for more than a few moments?
I’ve seen it in myself too. A real need to discipline myself to ‘get my head down’ and concentrate on what I’m doing.
That focused attention is where the value is added. The deep though. The creativity. The brilliant ideas. The real work.
I’m worried that we’re becoming more and more distracted by social media, emails, trivial chats. I’m all for that stuff (right place / right time etc.), but I feel like it’s killing us.
People can’t work for 10mins without checking Reddit…are we always chasing the dopamine hits or titillation?
I don’t have a solution right now, other than self-control, but I’m worried.
