Are you easily distracted?
I've noticed that some of my more persistent distractions stop feeling like distractions when I do them too much. What becomes a habit is all too easily accepted.
And not all distractions are bad. Some powerfully creative ideas came from unexpected distractions -- drifts of thinking leading to novel approaches that worked.
But living in distraction is dangerous.
Every distraction pulls us away from a noble goal.
When I feel that pull, I try to re-center myself and get back to the goal (or at least a goal.)
The goal is where the gold is.
