The factoid continues to rattle around my brain.
When the guest on our podcast shared it, as the interviewer I was incredulous.
It’s a stunning statistic that speaks volumes about why we’re so easily distracted.
Could it be that the average user touches his or her phone 2,617 times every day?
And is it possible that the power user touches their phone more than 5,400 times per day?
But do the math.
Think about every swipe, press and tap.
Multiply that by the number of tasks we rely on our devices for and it’s not so hard to believe.
When compounded by every ring, ding, vibration, alert, and notification it’s so easy to understand why our inability to focus for more than seconds at a time is constantly tested.
If, like so many wholesalers we speak to, you’re looking for productivity improvements, try the following:
- Turn off as many alerts as you can bear.
- Untether yourself from your device when you’re trying to concentrate on meaningful, thoughtful work.
