This is one of those very special articles written by Scott Belsky, CEO of Behance. I wasn’t sure where to put this, it really doesn’t fit a category.

I finally decided it belongs everywhere so no matter where I put it, it will be appreciated. I’m sure all of you can identify with this.

Here’s an excerpt: We’re addicted to distraction, and it’s holding us back. To find genius in the 21st century, we must build a discipline of unplugging and deep thinking.

Interruption-free space is sacred. Yet, in the digital era we live in, we are losing hold of the few sacred spaces that remain untouched by email, the internet, people, and other forms of distraction.

Our cars now have mobile phone integration and a thousand satellite radio stations. When walking from one place to another, we have our devices streaming data from dozens of sources.

Even at our bedside, we now have our iPads with heaps of digital apps and the world’s information at our fingertips.   http://the99percent.com/articles/6947/What-Happened-to-Downtime-The-Extinction-of-Deep-Thinking-Sacred-Space
