Yes, You’re Distracted. Is it ADHD?
For most of us, it's normal. For some of us — including Cynan Clucas, whom we spoke with for this week's episode — it's a sign of adult onset ADHD, and it's a problem that's only exacerbated by tech. In this week's episode, we talk with Michael Pietrus, a psychologist who specializes in ADHD and the technological distractions all around us. We also hear from two digital marketing professionals — Lizz Pietrus (yes, related) and Clucas himself — debating the role that tech plays in their lives and how to master it. That's right: we talked with two different people who work in the digital marketing worlds, who are worried about the consequences of their attention-grabbing tactics. Give it a listen. See if you relate to either of them. And be in touch. Because now we're curious: Are there more of you ambivalent techies out there making tech that is just a little too addictive sometimes? How do you feel about it? What do you do when you feel knocked sideways by the very tools and content you create? Drop us a line! You might end up on a future episode of the show.
