How does it matter?
John Foster said:
‘A man’s accomplishments in life are the cumulative effect of his attention to detail’.
According to a recent survey by Microsoft Corp., humans have a shorter attention span than a goldfish. It is safe to attribute this fact to the various options that the electronic offers today. Children, become restless and develop the need to always have a better option than the one they have in hand. As a result, their ability to pay attention to details has also deteriorated.
