The Demon Of Distraction

One of the biggest challenges you face to making progress in your life, or achieving any measure of success, is the Demon of Distraction. It truly is a demon because it seems to feed upon us, and gets ever larger and more powerful the more time we sacrifice to it. The sources of distraction are growing daily. TV, internet, email, SMS, mobile phones, news events, computer games, and much more. In fact, with so much to do and respond to, it's a wonder we get anything worthwhile done at all.
