If you’re struggling to stay focused, this book is for you. Distraction, as opposed to traction, will push you away from your goals. The author explains: “Being indistractable means striving to do what you say you will do.” The book is easy to read and has plenty of practical examples, often times flavoured with humour: “Solely blaming a smartphone for causing distraction is just as flawed as blaming a pedometer for making someone climb too many stairs.”
Also, the author mentions the Fogg Behaviour Model, stating that for a behaviour (B) to occur, three things must happen at the same time: motivation (M), ability (A) and a trigger (T). In other words, B= MAT.
There are many interesting things to learn in this book; although the concept is not new, “time boxing” is a good technique for time management; Nir Eyal says that ‘time management’ it is really nothing other than “pain management” (by learning how to handle distraction, we’re learning how to deal with discomfort).
In a society where we’re constantly tempted by modern technology and being “always on”, staying focused becomes a challenge.
