The Best in the Industry

...are good at ignoring things that are a distraction.  These people don't want to focus on trivial things.  For example if TV is a distraction, they ignore it.  Seth Godin hasn't watched TV in past 5 to 6 years.  If facebook is a distraction ignore it. 

Whatever stops you from doing your art, ignore it.   With ever increasing technological complexity, more and more media and brands are doing their best to grab your attention (the most scarce resource).  And the only way you can achieve focus is by ignoring things that aren't working out for you.

I removed my orkut account permanently and stopped using Facebook for personal use.
