Living a Focused Life in a Noisy and Distracted World
Are you busy being busy and mistaking movement for progress? If yes, you're not alone. You see, just because you're doing a lot more, doesn't mean you're getting a lot more done. Focus is a matter of deciding what things you’re not going to do. One look at an email can rob you of 15 minutes of focus. One call on your cell phone, one tweet, one instant message can destroy your schedule. That said, if you want to live a focused life in a noisy and distracted world, you will need to acquire the ability to say NO and set the boundaries by doing some digital "decluttering" and eliminating "Time Bandits!"
