Session No. 839 

Everyone is busy these days. Jumping from one thing to the next. Feeling a real sense of exhilaration. Yet at the same time, people feel exhausted, overwhelmed, like there’s not enough time in the day to get things done.

This isn’t an accident. Our digital lives have been designed to keep us distracted, and when we are preoccupied and side-tracked by the trivial, we go through life without purpose. Join this masterclass where we cover: (1) Why are we so distracted and what impact is it having on us? (2) What you need to do to initiate a response to minimise distraction?
