A Culture of Distraction

Never before has it been so easy to be distracted as it is today.

We truly live in a culture of distraction.

We’re interrupted by marketing messages hundreds of times a day.

Our phones are with us 24/7 and at any given moment, it’s highly likely that a notification is going off for a text, an email or a call.

There’s always something shiny and new to discover on social media.

In fact, it’s that novelty which makes it so addictive.

In this constant state of distraction, it’s no wonder that so many people aren’t reaching their fullest potential.

It takes very clear intentionality to keep oneself from being distracted.

It takes strong conviction to draw a line and say: I’m going to focus on my ultimate goals and remove all distractions from my life.

To create powerful and resonant art, we need to carve out large blocks of uninterrupted time to focus, to produce and to improve.

We need to go deep which is impossible if we’re distracted.

What would happen if you spent 3-4 hours a day doing deep, focused work toward making your dreams a reality instead of wasting 3-4 hours binge-watching shows and mindlessly browsing on social media?

Here’s what will happen: your dreams will come true.
