The Problem with Cultivating Distractions

Published by Susan Gillis Chapman on

In The Five Keys To Mindful Communication, I write about the ‘positive interruptions’ that come from learning to pay attention to the messages from our environment, from our felt experiences and from the wonder of not knowing what will happen next. This story from the New Work Times is the opposite, how we interrupt the potential for connecting by fixating on distraction.
