‘Ping!’ A new message. A new email. A friend’s page updated. A phone call. A new series on Netflix. The mobile, the tablet, the laptop, the watch: anything that can be connected is connected.
There is so much noise and distraction.
We move from one thing to the next.
Life is a mix of work, rest and play. All are connected digitally. Lines are blurred.
We are always connected, but not always deeply, it can be superficial and trivial.
But each and every moment is important, we don’t need to miss them as they pass by.
Focus on what you are doing. Minimise the distraction and enjoy the moment.
Continual partial engagement
We are always connected. That connection can be superficial. The more we are connected the less of us there is to share around.
But we can focus.
A little concentration.
Cutting back on the number of apps we have.
Reducing the time we look at the phone.
Being conscious of when we do look, making it an active decision.
We can perceive, enjoy and cherish each moment among the distraction.
We should all try to focus because being unfocused and distracted is so easy in our connected world. It’s a discipline that will enable us to enjoy our lives and make the most of them. It’s not often a discipline can be so positive and enjoyable. So minimise the distractions and enjoy the moments, whether they are connected or not.
