Sugarbrain

How many hours daily do you dedicate to your meaningful work?

Hold that question for a minute.

Ever get withdrawals if you miss your coffee break, or YouTube interlude, or other such fixes? You might have Sugarbrain. Sugarbrain is when:

  • Concentrating is hard: The next thing on your to-do list requires calm focus, such as writing an important document. So you go on YouTube for a bit instead.
  • Nerves become a habit: You’re expecting an important email to arrive, so you check your inbox twice a minute instead of twice a day, just in case. Just in case.

1.5 hours of Sugarbrain may equal 1 hour of non-Sugarbrain.

So back to our original question: how many hours daily do you dedicate to your meaningful work?
