I was inspired by the free E-Book “Focus – A simplicity manifesto in the Age of Distraction” by Leo Babauta to use some of my mobile people photographs to illustrate important findings made by the author.
It´s a new Lifestyle!
“Being connected, getting information all the time, having constant distractions… it has all become a part of our lives.”
It´s an Addiction!
“When we check email and get a new message, it´s a little bit of validation that we´re worthy of someone else´s attention, and so we check again, and again until we´re addicted”
It´s an Expectation
“Some people are expected to be available all the time […] and respond immediately – or they´re out of touch, or not so good business people.”
“Others are expected to be available for instant messaging or Skype chats,…
or be on social forums or social networks such as Facebook or Twitter.”
“And going against that expectation is immensely difficult for many people…
…it requires courage, or a willingness to be an arrogant prima donna.”
