Attention is critical for productivity. You only get done what you attend to. If we are distracted, we can't pay attention, and we can't get things done. While anything can be a distraction in our highly mobilized, technology-driven world, what has proven to be the ultimate distractor?
Your mobile device. While technology can be helpful, new research shows that your mobile device - even when it is *OFF*, on silent, or tucked away in a purse or pocket - is a distraction.
Why? Because knowing that it might require your attention at any moment means you share part of your brain space waiting for it to do so. It is almost as if part of your brain is constantly monitoring it, and switching it off doesn't seem to help! So what is the best way to overcome this distraction, reclaim your attention, ensure your focus, and get more done?
Put your mobile device on silent and out of the room you're in, for a while, and you'll notice your attention and productivity immediately increase!
