A younger colleague I’m mentoring says he’s struggling with an inability to focus. And then I notice that he never even disabled the notifications on his phone. This is akin to saying that you are struggling with alcoholism while loading bottles of cognac into your shopping cart.
People complain about things like they are out of their control but wouldn’t make the simplest little changes that are completely in their power.
I’m reading another book on focus and will post the results later, by the way.
