Focus is more valuable today because our economy is shifting to high-level knowledge work. We outsource or automate the low-level knowledge work Meanwhile the work that requires creativity, deep thinking or original thought is becoming more important in our economy and more valuable. At the same time, we are getting worse at concentrating because we are always on our phones. Email culture has become so pervasive within the workplace that focus is becoming more valuable at the same time it is becoming more rare. If you are someone who cultivates focus and deep work you will have a HUGE advantage. Website: www.mytalkingdollars.com
