Become indistractable. Learn how to increase focus, reduce distractions, and get things done.
- Our attention is one of our most valuable resources. But with so many noisy, flashing, and distracting demands on our attention, it's more important than ever to guard it carefully and focus on what really matters. So what if you could take small steps. Start a way of working and living with more focus, more productivity and less distraction? What if you could become indistractable? And because I have a Greek accent, let me explain indistractable meaning difficult to distract, difficult to hijack your attention.
That's where Nir Eyal comes in. Nir is the author of Hooked, How to Build Habit Forming Products. And one of our most original and innovative thinkers about how we can guard our attention. Nir is acutely aware of technology's potential to distract us. But what makes him truly interesting is that he's just as aware of its potential to help us be less distracted. So I'm delighted that he'll be sharing his insights on how we can build habits that help us focus and take back control of our time.
