Attention Span

How is your attention span? Have you felt it improve overtime or get worse and is there anything you believe has influenced the attention span you have today?

I just sit there, nod my head and say something every now and then, but really my mind is thinking about anything else.

I used to have a bad attention span, but my real attention problem is tunnel visioning. I pay attention to something and don't seem to have the brain resources to pay attention to anything else so I completely zone out

I would say mine is keen, because I have learned to adapt. I focus on finishing something before becoming distracted with another thing.
