Color has long been known to be a stimulant. In fact, the color yellow in particular has been shown to entice children (Legos, for example). I think we live in a world where we want fewer distractions and more focus — for several good reasons.
- Our time on this earth is limited, we need to make the most of it.
- We can be more productive if we are forced to focus. Recently, I have totally blacked out the second monitor on my desktop computer so I am forced to focus on one task, but realize that the other monitor is there if I need it. So many apps now have “focus” mode or “Zen” mode or “fullscreen” mode. Take advantage of it. If you’re not too distracted you might thank me… #GrayPhone
