⫹⫺ Endless Distraction

Hello my friends,
In life and work there are two great equalizers:
Focus is the ability to do deep work.
Momentum is the outcome of consistent deep work.
This virtuous cycle requires you to wean yourself off constant feed-refreshing, dopamine consumption, and shift from a consumer to creator mindset.
Break the habit and the results are asymmetrically leveraged:
Consuming = 10x easier than creating.
Creating = 100x dopamine hit.
If you have time to consume you have time to create. Just change the conditions accordingly.
