His next book, Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life, reveals the Achilles' heel of distraction and provides a guidebook for getting the best of technology without letting it get the best of us.
In today’s show, Nir dives deep into all the ways we get distracted in today’s world and best practices for becoming indistractable, so you can stay focused, get more done and still have time to schedule downtime, fun stuff and the things that you place your most important values on, such as health and family time. After listening, go check out our conversations with Brad Spencer and Henry Evans for more time saving tips on how to plan out your week for maximum efficiency and focus.
“The skill of the century is going to be to become indistractable. There’s going to be a bifurcation out there of two different kinds of people. The people who let their attention and minds be controlled by somebody else, and those who say, ‘Nope - I am indistractable’.” - Nir Eyal
