Lately more than ever in this digital age of distractions I’ve found that procrastination is becoming a bigger and bigger problem. I don’t believe I’m the only person noticing this problem, so this is something I want to touch on.
I don’t notice this problem solely in business either. This issue seems to apply to not only your work life, but also your personal life. For example, in my free time I find great pleasure in coaching a kids sports team, and in these kids I see a definite difference in the level of distraction now vs back when I was playing sports as a child. With the digital age of games and digital media, the kids seem to be constantly engulfed in this world and it becomes more and more difficult to maintain their attention for the task at hand. I see this constantly in business too, people are constantly talking about media trends and the latest big thing, showing that they are fully engulfed in these distractions and becoming less and less able to focus on the current task at hand.
We will continue on this topic later, but I would love to hear some comments about the readers opinions on this issue.
Until next time,
