The No Fidget Spin Zone

Hey Gang,

Years ago when I was a child, my father used to say to me, "Cathy Gainer Corporate Trainer, stop your fidgeting!"  He had all sorts of gems like that.  "Cathy Gainer Corporate Trainer, sit still!"  "Cathy Gainer Corporate Trainer, be quiet!"  "Cathy Gainer Corporate Trainer, I am not your real father."  Awe, the memories.

It really felt like a blast from the past when I saw the new trend of fidget spinners.  For those of you who don't know what they are, it is a shiny object that people spin with their hands out of nervousness or impatience.  It's not to be confused with the cell phones everyone has in their hands and reads to satisfy their dopamine levels.  Awe, the 21st Century.

It got me to thinking, why does modern society need to be so distracted?  Why can't we just throw away our fidget spinners and  just appreciate the things in life that we already have like the internet? Or television? Or even video games?  It's almost like people are desperately trying to numb themselves to all that 2017 has to offer.  Awe, the foreshadowing.

Take care gang and remember, the distraction that you find today, will be the very thing that you will procrastinate tomorrow.
