It seems fitting to start off with a post on ADT. This is a condition that has similar symptoms to ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) but unlike ADD and ADHD which are biological conditions, ADT is a learned behaviour - so says psychiatrist expert Dr. Edward Hallowell. We live in a society that is causing us to become more and more distracted. We are interrupted by emails, tweets, instant messages, cell phones etc. It has got so bad that we now actively seek the interruption as our brain can no longer stay on one task for more than a couple of minutes. This is causing us to become more superficial in our answering of questions, making us unable to effectively analyse problems, and may even lead to less sleep and related conditions of stress, anxiety etc. The solution? A desert island with not computers or cell phones. If that is not possible then get ready for your new ADT you!
