More on distractions

It isn’t enough to not take on distractions. There needs to be a systemic method for canceling out the desire to be distracted. 

Because we have programmed ourselves to feel pleasure at distraction. It isn’t necessarily our fault. It’s a side effect of the technological age. Similar to the marketer/shopping reward scenario that made consumerism such a pleasurable sensation. We are rewarded by checking social media, or email, or taking momentary breaks in our day.

So systems that we put in place to limit distractions get us closer to performing at our highest levels.
