The Law of Distraction

The Law of Distraction states that anything can divert our attention if we allow it. In our distracting modern world, we forget tasks, procrastinate, and lose sight of goals. To overcome this, McBane advises reinforcing desires daily, trusting in our ability to succeed, and taking practical steps: putting devices down, practicing breathwork, self-reflecting on purpose, and learning to say "no" to non-essential distractions. Create notifications reminding you to avoid unimportant interruptions. Building new thought patterns fortifies focus. Though uncomfortable initially, exercising this "muscle" of clarity empowers us to live with less distraction.
