Your Hierarchy of Distraction Tolerance

We ALL want YOUR attention NOW!

That’s right . . . the entire Universe is co-conspiring to distract you from maintaining focus on the important things that you know you need to accomplish today.

Not only do we want your attention, but we want OUR emergencies to become YOUR emergencies . . . We have URGENCY for you to solve our problem.

We believe that our urgent need should leap to the front of the line in your consciousness such that you abandon any thoughts or actions on which you might be focused.

Today’s society is engineered to the advantage of US – the very people who want to steal your time and attention and keep you from attending to the important matters and people in your life.

Don’t let us do this!

Begin by knowing the difference between urgent and important.

Pledge ONLY to shift your time, energy, focus, or money to urgent matters that are also important.

Reserve time early in the day to identify the important things you must do this day/week/month/year to move you a step closer to your goals.

Hermetically seal yourself into a safe place, insulated from any and all distractions until you have attended to these before you open the door to let us into your consciousness.

All these other urgent matters we throw at you throughout the day can wait.

There’s another reason to deflect our urgent needs for your attention . . .

Each time you succumb to our clamoring, you are enabling our perceived need for YOU to fix our problems . . . and we love this because then we can shift our burden of responsibility to YOU!

Interestingly . . . The less you attend to our urgent needs, the better we get at solving our own problems.

Next thing ya know, we don’t need you for our urgent solutions anymore . . . and you get to focus on more of the things that matter most to you.


Of course, the possibility does exist that you LIKE the attention you get from us when you solve our urgent problems . . .

If so, how could you monetize that?
