An interview with best-selling author Daniel Goleman about his new book, Focus.

2. meta-cognition

3. and meta-emotion,

this interview digs into the risks and challenges of technological distractions and how they take a toll on our emotional intelligence. The "inner/outer/other" focus descriptions illuminate the hard-wired and learned strengths of the human mind but this interview touches on even more layers of awareness, including the ever-valid ability to unplug or allow your mind to go adrift.
