We live on a speed train that constantly challenges us to our core. A digitally driven, 24/7, always-on, always connected reality that leaves us with sensory overload, constant distraction and no time to think.
The reality is that our brains are not designed to constantly drink from this firehose of information. So, in a bid to survive, we try to multi-task our way through. The net effect is that we are loosing the ability to focus, the key ingredient in executing anything successfully .
