Truth #1 – We Are a Participant In Our Distractions

All of our distractions flow through us. We are not simply a passer-by, but a direct participant in our distractions.

Because our distractions flow through us, we participate in:

  • what is perceived as a distraction,
  • how that distraction affects us, and
    by how much
  • what we do when distracted
  • what we do to avoid, lessen, or increase distraction
  • where we are distracted
  • when we are distracted
  • how frequently we are distracted.

(This post is part of an on-going series of posts on The Truths of Distraction. At the conclusion of the series all truths will be combined into a video.)

    Yes, which is why I’m going to get off the computer and do some REAL WORK now. My house looks like it hasn’t been cleaned all week!
