Lately I’ve had a burning desire to reduce everything down to its simplest form so I have space to make and create, but things have been getting in my way.
Attention, Focus, & Effort
It’s time to be thoughtful about how we work, both by ourselves and in collaboration with others.
By bringing new perspectives, mindsets, and practices into our daily routines, we unlock our incredible potential and empower ourselves to approach life in new ways so we can create the changes we want to see in our world.
Ideas are halted. Creativity has nowhere to go. It’s almost as if a wet towel has been thrown on a spark that’s about to turn into a flame. So what will you do?
Connected technologies are amazing innovastions that open up a world of possibilities, but must be used carefully in ways that improve our lives yet don’t pull us too far away from living in the physical world that surrounds us.
We resist as strongly as we can, telling ourselves we’ll be better off. But resistance is futile and eventually we’ll give in and check. We must know. Something happened, somewhere, and we long for insight and updates.
In the midst of writing about distraction I got distracted and forgot my train of thought. How fucked up is that?!
We’re so connected to connection that we always focus on filling our mental capacity and stimulating sensors in our brains that we’re detached from what it actually feels like to have real world feelings and interactions.
Bombardment of information; never ending messaging with friends; constant onslaught of attention-stealing notifications. These are a few of the time sinks of the modern world.
Our connected culture has effects on people, relationships and societies that we haven’t begun to fully understand yet, and it’s the most awesome and most scary revolution the world has ever seen.
