We were already living in an era of distraction, and that was before a polarizing presidential election and breaking news coming at us fast and furious. My social media feeds used to be an eclectic mix of a range of interests. Now? 100% politics.
I keep getting sucked into reading the news, getting into discussions, waiting to see what is going to happen next, and not getting nearly enough writing done.
I’ve never lived in a time less-suited for quiet concentration. And yet isn’t that precisely what we all need right now?
How are you staying productive? Anyone managing to block out the noise? Any tips?
