The brain works in two ways.
The default setting is one in which our minds wander.
The second is focused in an undistracted way.
Why is it increasingly hard to focus?
Too much self-absorption – the inability to be in the now 100% laser focused on something other than ourselves.
A lack of sincere gratitude even for bad things that happen to us that will eventually become transformative.
And the absence of kindness to other people even those who may not appreciate you.
The brain can be trained.
