Our Attention Is Under Siege: Tony Schwartz and Daniel Goleman

The Energy Project's CEO, Tony Schwartz, sits down with thought leader Daniel Goleman (Emotional Intelligence, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence) to dis...
Kat Tansey's insight:

Daniel Goleman is raising the ante with his new book on "Focus." He says, "the game has changed so much that we have to get conscious and intentional about something we took for granted" -- i.e. our ability to attend and focus.

 

Technology is invading our ability to attend at an alarming rate .  We need to develop tools to help us raise our awareness of what is going on in our mind and know how to bring it back.

Ann-WomanTalk Live's curator insight, October 23, 2013 1:47 PM

Most of the women I know feel pulled in so many directions.  Our culture - listen to me, right now, I want it now, I want you to do it now - promotes us being on the go all the time and feeling guilty when we aren't.  I believe it's time to settle in and shut down on a regular basis - to know what's happening within ourselves and to come out fresher with a new lease on life.

What Happened to Downtime? The Extinction of Deep Thinking & Sacred Space | The Promise of Mindfulness Meditation | Scoop.it

Interruption-free space is sacred. Yet, in the digital era we live in, we are losing hold of the few sacred spaces that remain untouched by email, the internet, people, and other forms of distraction.
