On Distractions 

I love being well read and I consider myself to be well rounded. I enjoy hearing people’s opinions and trying to understand their point of view. As such, I read, watch, and listen to a pretty wide variety of things. And while I certainly value this immensely lately I’ve been wondering if it hasn’t been causing me to be distracted.

Often times when I’m absorbing something I’ll have an idea and then I’ll get really excited it. This happens time and time again to the point where I don’t feel like I’ve done much of anything. I’ve talked about this before but lately I’ve been trying to pay attention to whether this is a by-product have a diverse group of things that I consume. Maybe focusing what I’m consuming for spans of time will help me focus on the projects I’m working on.
