Thanks for bringing the conversation back on topicI am really looking forward to this one
NEW SPEAKER ANNOUNCED! Mona L. @Bertram, A Senior Research Scholar from Duke University. Topic: Getting Attention. Dropping Distraction. Mona does research on mental states, attention, a new model of consciousness, and cross-cultural ideas about well-being. Her discoveries are useful and kinda wildly unexpected. This work has provided her with the ability to deliver a really purposeful presentation for forum members. Join us for a helpful, accurate talk on time management and distraction and their effects on the domains of work, relationships, and oneself. She will cover the basics without the hackneyed, disempowering myths about technological triggers, addiction, habits, and ADD/ADHD. The focus is to learn the tools to make changes and live your life, not the life that is the sorry outcome of distraction. In addiction to undermining one's career and business, distraction causes friendships to run dry and marriages to become miserable and conflictive. It also results in poor health and a shortened life. She will also touch on research on the six attentional states, and those which one uses in order to think creatively.
Imo this topic will be important for almost anyone. I don't know why but I have the feeling that distraction becomes a bigger topic over time. From social media or YouTube or anywhere else the noise is getting louder and screaming for your attention.
Also I recognized the influence my phone has over me. When I want to concentrate and my phone is faced upwards next to me it's really hard to focus. Even if I can only see it with an standby screen it's already distracting me. Therefore I always hide my phone out of my view range and place it screen faced down. Otherwise it's really hard to focus for me. I already turned off all notifications of distracting apps but even without it the temptation of only seeing my phone is already destroying my concentration. Maybe some of you experience something similar.
So this will be definitely an interesting topic to me
