There are so many distractions in the modern world. Even if you had been born hundreds or thousands of years ago there would still be distractions, they would be of a different nature.
Not every event in this world or in your immediate surroundings demands your attention. Focus on those that are your purpose or your goal. Do not lose sight of those priorities. An often difficult thing is not necessarily focusing on goals but establishing goals. Do not float through this world sampling everything, see everything, but focus on you and your plan. Help others, but focus on your plan. Enjoy the company of others, but focus on your plan.
If your plan has not reached more then the first few steps, it is now time to prioritize, make this a priority or make a new priority.
