The Most important Skill of the 21st centuryOctober 16, 2019
The challenge at work, of course, has always been to dodge things that distract us. But today’s distractions feel different.
The amount of information available, the speed at which it can be disseminated and the ubiquity of access to new content on our devices has made for a trifecta of distraction.
A lack of focus comes at a cost – What’s the cost?
Attention, it appears, seems to be the ultimate scarce resource in today’s economy. And if we don’t address it now, it’s only going to get worse.
The workplace is rapidly changing, and in the near future, there will be two kinds of people in the world: those who let their attention and lives be controlled and coerced by others and those who proudly call themselves “in-distractable.”
Researcher have been telling us that attention and focus are the raw materials of human creativity and flourishing. And in the age of increased automation, the most sought-after jobs are those that require creative problem-solving, novel solutions and the kind of human ingenuity that comes from focusing deeply on the task at hand.

Benefits in Stillness and Silence
Unfortunately, stillness and silence seem to be rare to find. At some juncture in life, every one of us comes to learn that the greatest obstacle we face in this lifetime is ourselves. That battle is fought in the stillness of our hearts and the willingness to confront ourselves. As Bruce Lee pointed out, behind the punches, kicks, and knees, a true martial artist learns to sit with himself and see where his weaknesses are.
In my countless years of martial arts classes, I remember many challenges, breakthroughs, and setbacks. What I do not remember are distractions or gimmicks like you often see at your local health club. At FightClub you will learn how to relax, find power, work hard, deal with distractions and get focused!
