Too many times we let many things control our attention. We let things interrupt work in other areas. We need to focus. That other thing might be impotrtant. if it is, take care of it. But if it is not as important as what we are working on, note it and get back to work. Taking time to work on the other thing just takes work away from our current activity. We all have more than enough to do. If we focus on the most important thing and get that done, we can move on to the next important thing. Then, one by one, we get stuff done. Otherwise we work on a whole lot of stuff without really getting anything done.
