HOW TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS

(via Design for Mankind)

Miranda July does it again with this video on dealing with distractions.

At first glance, she’s illustrating what we all struggle with: distraction. Beeps and pings, wandering eyes and lingering thoughts until – suddenly – the day has grown dark and our stomachs are growling, with little actual work accomplished. (Guilty.)

But I think this video reveals more. I think it’s a call to action, begging the question: What is your hostage? And what puts it in danger?

Whether your hostage is kindness or innocence, purpose or creativity, distraction binds each. And if we’re wise – like Miranda July – we’d all do well to put a baking sheet of grape juice atop it.

More Miranda July.
