I hate attention spans! I don’t know why god invented them… it gets me into all sorts of problems with the girlfriend, she often says: “Dean, you are not listening are you?”, and I reply with something like “half past three dear”.
I think that if I was richer, and I had seen more episodes of Ally McBeal, I would most definitely sue whoever invented the Internet, because once I get online my already flaky attention span becomes even worse. I flick from site to site, working at 150mph one minute, and watching a Youtube video of a monkey sniffing his ass the next, I scan blog articles and hit the back button if they haven’t cured cancer by the time I reach sub-heading….
There is no doubt about it, my damn attention span has less patience than Harold Shipman!
Perhaps you can relate to this?
Well, the other day I was sent an email from Rich Schefren, he is one of the biggest names in the industry, so I got uber-excited and opened the email…. then, the excitement dropped… he wanted me to promote his latest product.
Now, I like Rich, I saw a presentation he did once, and it was superb, but regular readers will know that I don’t promote affiliate products on here, never have, never will!
I was just about to delete and then I saw four little letters that changed everything… these letters were: F R E E
Now I was interested, so I asked for an advanced copy of The Attention Age Doctrine, Part II, and it arrived the next day.
All of my experiences and routines on the Internet suddenly made sense. The Doctrine explains that we are currently experiencing an information overload, and we have to adapt or die.
I am not going to spoil it for you, as you can grab a free copy yourself: Free Copy Here – It really has shone a light into my brainbox and I really feel that awareness is the first step.
I will leave you with one snippet of info that will put this into perspective… “There is more information in one weeks worth of The New York Times, than a human from 1900 would experience in their ENTIRE lifetime.”
I am not saying our brains are not capable of handling so much info overload so quickly, but they are certainly not used to it, and it is only going to get worse.
Seriously, I don’t promote anything on DeanHunt.com so when I do, you must know it has to be worth a look, especially when it has the four magic letters (all together now) : F R E E
PS: You will never believe what this monkey on YouTube just did!
