Check out the article by Johann Hari: Your Attention Didn’t Collapse – It was Stolen
This article from the Guardian dives into our society and increasing lack of focus. I certainly agree with his observations – everywhere I look, I see people immersed in their phones and disengaged from their environment. That’s not the sole problem, but it is certainly a compelling symptom.
On the flip side, I’m currently reading Extreme Productivity, by Robert C. Pozen. Perhaps I can find some more clues about focus to help me recapture and control my own attention span.
