Your attention span is the amount of time you can concentrate on a task without becoming distracted. Most educators and psychologists agree that the ability to focus attention on a task is crucial for the achievement of one’s goals. It’s no surprise attention spans have been decreasing over the past decade with the increase in external stimulation. 


Technology has really shifted the way we have taken in information and processed it. While it has made certain industries much quicker and more efficient, it has affected society’s attention spans. Some signs of a short attention span include:


  • Missing important details
  • Difficulty communicating with others
  • Not listening during meetings and lectures
  • Getting easily distracted
