Always a million things to do
It seems if the world won’t let you go.
Every hour, every minute, every second there is another ding, another phone call, another project. A loud noise steals from you.
We hurt for it.
Every time we get lost in one of those distractions, we lose upwards of 20 minutes of our time to refocus. Not only that, the current thought or idea we had before is gone forever.
As Heraclitus said, “You can’t step into the same river twice.”
I assume if you’re reading this, something else is grabbing your attention, now.
If it is, I’d like you to ask yourself this question:
“Is the world going to end if I don’t look at this now?”
Remember, everything is a tradeoff, and if you don’t proactively decide, the loudest noise wins.
When have you ever been in a room and the most deafening noise was the most insightful?
My point exactly.
