When things in my life were not going well I realised I was reacting to everything that was going on around me, I got caught up in the drama and the distractions. It was all-consuming.
The more awareness I had the more I found how the noise was moving me further away from my ideal life.
“An addiction to distraction is the end of your creative production.”
— Robin S. Sharma
