It’s all about signal-to-noise ratio. The thing that is frustrating about distractions is that you can get pulled away so easily and not realize it. If it’s annoying, like someone texting in the theatre, I get so upset that I stew in that, rather than realize, I’ve been distracted. If it’s something cool or fun, I’m so interested and want to get involve that I don’t notice I have been distracted. Medication makes a huge difference, in fact right now there are two people sitting about ten feet away discussing a big complex issues about financial stuff, but it’s the practice of noticing that you have to develop. It’s noticing. Like in meditation when your mind wanders, you get better and better at noticing it’s wandering. It’s gonna wander. It’s how far it takes you.
