The Uncorked Conversation with Allyson Scammell

Ep #38: Staying Focused in the Age of Distraction

May 9, 2019

Text messages, emails, newsfeeds, headlines, Mr. Google. All day long there are rings, dings, pings, and curiosities whirling around our brains begging us to investigate. The problem arises when we spend too much effort feeding our monkey mind urges, instead of focusing on what we truly want to create in life - the things that light us up and our heart is calling us to do.

In today’s episode, we explore how getting distracted is linked to our desire for instant gratification. I offer ways to make peace with delayed gratification so you can shift into intense focus and keep your attention on your top priorities.

In today’s episode we explore:

  • The science behind why we’re so easily distracted in the 21st century
  • How to develop a habit of focus
  • What to do after periods of intense focus
