Big screens, little screens, on and off screen, in front of you, behind you, in your ear, in your face, in your car, in your home, everywhere. Distractions are everywhere.
We drown in them. We’re derailed by them. We’re inspired by them. …We’re in love with them.
We seek them out. We call to them, asking to be taken away. To be our rescuer from the mundane and boring. From the difficult and challenging. From the tragic and heartbreaking.
We welcome distractions with open arms, to clutter our existence with denial, avoidance or entertainment.
It may seem harmless, but what are these distractions costing us?
