In today’s fast paced world many of us need a reminder to slow down and think about how to budget our time. This is what Peter Winick’s article provides. He reminds readers that just because a message reaches you instantaneously doesn’t mean that it is urgent. Read this article if you need help focusing on tasks at hand and not being distracted everytime a device vibrates.

Key Takeaways:

  • how easily incredibly bright people get distracted or sidetracked.
  • A text, an email, an instant message can often pull us from what is most critical to something that’s gotten our attention solely because of the medium and method it was transmitted to us.
  • Harness the power of these technologies to your benefit, not your detriment.

“Our brains are not wired to bounce from task to task to task. Concentration yields higher quality thinking and problem-solving. Stress levels increase when we are constantly pulled in various directions.”
