A never-ending cacophony of notifications, messages and other electronic distractions has reduced our attention span and our decision-making ability to new lows: we have reached a calamity of inaction. We procrastinate and put off for tomorrow what we should be doing today, and this has an overwhelming negative impact on our ability to solve the problems we face.
