It’s so easy to get dangerously distracted. 

A glint of gold. A flashing light.

A list of things we should be doing or a meeting that’s happening right now. 

An hour or two slips by and suddenly, that milestone in the day has slipped out of sight. 

Technical issues are one thing. 

Getting distracted is a survival tactic. 

We’ve got to learn to ignore that basic instinct to follow the will ‘o wisp into dreamland and focus on what counts, if we want to thrive.
