Summary of “Technology is destroying the most important asset in your life”

“Money isn’t the most important thing in the world. Your time is.”
The most important asset in your life isn’t time, but attention.
You can spend 80 years of a life with as much free time as you want and still not get out of it as much as someone who only lived for 40 years but managed to appropriately direct attention to the things that mattered to them.
Although time is indeed limited, with attention, it can be diluted to expand beyond what most other people get out of the same quantity.
Naturally, these devices and technologies are an important part of modern life, but in order for them to be a net positive force in your life, you have to set boundaries.
Attention has the power to make you happier by helping you appreciate the little things that are easily neglected in day to day life.
Attention can guide you to a fulfilled life by forcing focus onto the things that really matter to you, rather than the things that steal you away.
If you protect and cultivate your attention, there is almost nothing stopping you from living the life you want, because that’s where it all begins.
