There are certain things that can rob us of focus, kill the effectiveness of what we are doing and diminish the quality of our lives. When it comes to living fully, this threat is dangerous.
What am I talking about?
Distractions, Interruptions. Drifting. These not only grab our attention but to some extent interrupts our action.
We are constantly bombarded with distractions and some of them we volunteer. We constantly check our text messages, emails, voicemails, orkut and Facebook accounts. We chat, text, talk and take off tangentially from time to time.
Can some of those activities be beneficial? Of course some can, but not all.
Distractions are those things that prevent us from doing the important work we should be focusing on.
