There is something that can rob us of focus, kill the effectiveness of what we’re doing and diminish the quality of our lives. When it comes to living fully, this threat is deadly.
What is it?
Distractions. Background noise. Static. Interruptions. Drifting. The attention grabbing but action interrupting.
We are bombarded with distractions and volunteer for many of them. We constantly check our text messages, emails, voicemails and Facebook accounts. We twitter, talk and took off on tangents.
Can some of those activities be purposeful? Of course some can, but not all.
Distractions are those things that prevent us from doing the important work we should be about.
(And I hope this blog wasn’t a distraction for you today.)
