The need for acquiring strong time and attention management skills has never been greater.  Obviously, today’s media-rich environment competes with an unfair advantage for the attention of eyes, ears and hands. The ability to focus is under siege and without concentration the capacity for deep, reflective thinking erodes.  Higher order thinking skills such as initiating, planning, organizing, scheduling and analyzing suffer from constant interruptions and extensive multitasking. Using willpower alone to resist the pull of the many, many distractions of the socially-connected world often fails.  Incomplete work, late and missed assignments, poor grades and, unfortunately, dropping out or quitting are all squandered opportunities for success.  What results is feeling stressed, drained and defeated with the realization of lost control and power.
