Danger: distracted working.

8 Mar

Seth Godin is really a down-to-business kind of guy. He really understands keys to success, in many different ways of looking at it. For designers and climbers everywhere, the challenges ahead of them are intimidating and it is often much easier to step away from them or to reword them to to increase their input of knowledge than to develop their output. In this post about how getting down to the good stuff and making something is about losing distractions, it first made those at SignDeClimb worried that the concept of being able to stay in touch anywhere would halt the perseverance of climbers and the ambition to take things on in a solo manner. But then the fact that there is an easily accessible “off” button and a music function was re-examined. If the Climuns impedes the progression of real climbing in anyway, maybe it should be reconsidered. But that’s where the ability to shut yourself off and completely lose yourself in a challenge comes into play. That’s what music helps do. It calms an overwhelmed mind and provides the distraction necessary to soothe, while at the same time not interfering with the challenges at hand.
