Access Point: Focus
"Until your mission becomes your obsession, your life will be designed by distraction."
- James McPartland
In this age of an incredible amount of information at our fingertips, we are highly vulnerable to distraction. The need to respond instantly to every email, phone call, text, or social media post as quickly as possible is "re-wiring our brain" to be addicted to distraction. We literally crave the next "ping", making it virtually impossible to go for any stretch without checking our technology. In an ADHD-like state, we struggle to focus for long periods of time, and find difficulty in thinking deeply about one thought, idea, or task.
Focus requires discipline - and can serve as a continual reminder of what we're most committed to becoming, and the mission we want to fulfill in life.
