Distracted from what?

You cannot be distracted unless you intend to be doing something else.

The word distraction is derived from the word traction. Traction itself derives from the Latin word trahere – to pull or draw. Words such as track and tractor share the same root.

By definition, you need to have traction before you can be distracted. You need to be on course to achieving a clear goal or a vision. When you deviate from this course, you are distracted.

In most cases, our distraction stems from a lack of traction.
