Single-Tasking Is a Challenge

Too many apps. Too many emails. Too many projects. Too much to care about and not enough time to get them done.

Technology was supposed to save us time. Instead, it made us available 24/7 like a doctor. It also made us slaves to the excess of content. No matter how many music or articles you get to, there’s always more. The feeds never end. The Internet never ends, despite the effort of magical algorithms to save us time.

All this newness is a distraction, one that needs to be controlled and prioritized. Google created Alphabet to distinguish its focus between search and moon shots.

We need to set non-negotiables for our attention. To solely focus on anything is a luxury.

Or is it?
