There's a very interesting new field of study called "Interruption Science." Did you know Americans usually switch tasks every 3 minutes? Did you know that distraction is said to cost American businesses 650 billion dollars per year? Why are we a culture with attention deficiencies? Why do most Americans joke about how we all have ADD? What is focus? How can we keep better focus?
The 8 minute video clip below is a Business Week interview with Maggie Jackson who is talking about interruption science by promoting her new book Distracted. She gives a good amount of information and things to consider.
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
