The Crown, Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale – it’s the golden age of prestige television. Budgets, artistry and star power in television have apparently never been higher.
There’s just one thing.
It turns out that the most popular, most streamed shows aren’t epic or politically prescient or extravagant.
The other day I was reading, and I came across a quote that made me do a double take.
I’ve been travelling for work a bit lately, which means I’ve been out of my normal routines, and have fallen into a familiar trap.
I’ve been overconnected. And I can tell it’s hurting me.
You probably know the signs yourself – and how easy it is to find yourself doing it.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. We have the power to take control of our connectedness – and not the other way around.
I have a theory that in the future, there will be two types of people. Those who can focus, and those who can’t.
The reason is simple. We are drowning in distraction. And distraction is toxic to focus.
