Quotes on Living A Life Less Distracted

“Our brains are made to be scanners, as opposed to men [who] find it easier to focus on one thing. Think way back to caveman times. You had four, five, kids running around and you had to know where all of them were. So our brains just naturally scan… These are things that have served us very well. But in this digital environment that we're living in, this exploits the strengths that we have.” [6:21]

“There’s so many things that are going to interrupt us that the things we can control we need to put boundaries in place.” [25:59]

“How you start your morning with what you eat and drink sets the tone for the whole day. It's the same regarding your productivity. When you start your day and you're on your phone, you’re letting other people’s agenda set your agenda for your day. And it's hard to fully recover from that… As opposed to starting your morning on your priorities and then after you get your most important things done, then you tune in to what else is coming at you.” [35:15]

“I used to think of boundaries with such a negative connotation. Now that I’ve gotten older and I’ve started putting boundaries in place. For me the boundaries and structure has created more freedom for me and I didn’t see that before. And it is so magical and incredible.”  [41:17]

“We lose hours, and I mean hours of a day to digital distractions if we’re not consciously putting in place boundaries. I don’t know about you — but I don’t have hours a day to give up to that kind of stuff.” [46:07]
