Distractions are nothing new, but the sheer amount of distractions available to us in our modern world is overwhelming.  It is impossible to talk about distraction without acknowledging the impact of technology on our lives, but Katie pulls back the curtain on technology to explore what is really behind our attraction to it.  What is the root cause of distraction and how can we overcome it?  If you desire to live a purposeful life without succumbing to the onslaught of distractions coming your way, join us for this powerful conversation.

In this episode, we cover:

  • Uncovering the root cause of distraction
