Once upon a time, there was a set amount of programming. It felt like there was time for diversion, then a pretty clear line of when to get back to our core focus.
Today, that line is no longer clearly drawn.
It’s not always easy to recognize when distractions are piling up, and even after knowing they are it can be hard to resist the inertia of feeding into them.
At some point though, the work is still there regardless of the distractions.
Drawing the lines. Setting the habits. Getting down to the core of the work is a skill, and it’s only growing in value.
