The first episode of season 2 takes a deep look into digital distraction. Our daily lives are full of it.

The screens we stare at all day create so much mental noise - notifications, messaging, instagram, email-checking, multi-screen multi-tasking desk setups. Distraction is everywhere.  So how do you stay focused and how do you keep your people concentrated on the intellectual undertaking of effective execution?

We dive into what it means to be distracted, how to be present, understanding and dealing with the “noise” of digital distraction, and finally into practicing mindfulness. Enjoy!
