Everything happens at once.
You get a message on WhatsApp, on Messenger, a normal SMS, a blog post notification, a voice mail, an email, a Slack mention, a phone call, while you are listening to music with the earpiece in one ear and you are carrying out a conversation with a work colleague or a family member or a friend.
This is a crisis, and its real.
We have to choose on what to focus on, as our attention is a scarce resource. We need to find ways to use it wisely because every single human being gets the same amount of attention to spend each day, but some use it better than others and have an ability to focus on getting stuff done.
While others just waste their time on their smartphones or gaming or watching streaming TV. Imagine if all that time wasted on your smartphone scrolling the social media feed was money.
Would you waste your money like that?
On absolutely nothing.
I suppose the question to be asked is, how do we want to live each day?
Do we want to live to just get through the day, and tomorrow will be another day to get through?
And then what happens?
We’ve gone through all the days and lived the same as all the previous days. Is this a life fulfilled?
But what would happen if we saw each day as an opportunity to do something different, just for 10 minutes, instead of a task in a process.
How would that feel 12 months from now?
