"WHEN OUR BRAIN ISOVERTAXED,
WE FIND 'DISTRACTIONS MORE DISTRACTING.'"
Attention is the key to our mental life, the very connection that we hold to this
world. Think about it; about how difficult it can be to manage your own attention.
Think about how fleeting it can be. Then again, consider how it is sometimes
steadfast. Alternatively again, think about other people’s attention rather than your
own. Think about how precious it can feel when someone’s attention falls upon you.
