Description

"Indistractable provides a framework that will deliver the focus you need to get results." (James Clear, author of Atomic Habits)

You sit down at your desk to work on an important project, but a notification on your phone interrupts your morning. Later, as you're about to get back to work, a colleague taps you on the shoulder to chat. At home, screens get in the way of quality time with your family. Another day goes by, and once again, your most important personal and professional goals are put on hold.  

What would be possible if you followed through on your best intentions? What could you accomplish if you could stay focused and overcome distractions? What if you had the power to become "indistractable"?  

International best-selling author, former Stanford lecturer, and behavioral design expert, Nir Eyal, wrote Silicon Valley's handbook for making technology habit-forming. Five years after publishing Hooked, Eyal reveals distraction's Achilles' heel in his groundbreaking new book.  

In Indistractable, Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving us to distraction. He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices: Abstinence is impractical and often makes us want more.  

Eyal lays bare the secret of finally doing what you say you will do with a four-step, research-backed model. Indistractable reveals the key to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of us.  

Inside, Eyal overturns conventional wisdom and reveals: 

  • Why distraction at work is a symptom of a dysfunctional company culture - and how to fix it  
  • What really drives human behavior and why "time management is pain management"  
  • Why your relationships (and your sex life) depend on you becoming indistractable  
  • How to raise indistractable children in an increasingly distracting world 

Empowering and optimistic, Indistractable provides practical, novel techniques to control your time and attention - helping you live the life you really want.

incredibly packed with life-boosting tools

Truly wow! I've probably read 30 books that Nir used in his research, so I didn't totally discover a lot, but he packed a HUGE amount of very important mindset shifts, new research takeways and very practical tips. Plus, very fluid structure and flow, and memorable stories.

For a life makeover, or a great companion to optimizing in all areas, from intimate sex to enterprise workplace culture, from self compassion to parenting successful kids, from creating great apps and digital innovation, to managing pain, shame and time...

Nothing new...

I was disappointed. Learned more from a podcast that Nir was on, than I did from the book. The title and concept of ‘being indistractable’ is catchy, but the book didn’t offer any real depth. The same ol’ turn off your technology and be present, and then other unrealistic strategies for work. Beyond that it focused on parenting, which is unrelatable for me.

Most tactical and practical book on focus

The most tactical and practical book + resources for getting to deep work. One of the few books I’ve read that come with a workbook and other materials to help with the implementation of the theory and guidance outlined in the book. This past weekend I started working through the workbook with my family and they've been largely receptive given the way the points and exercises are laid out. I won’t share all my notes here but a few key points I found really interesting were:
- Distraction is how our brain deals with pain/discomfort. If distraction costs us time, time management is pain management.
- Residual beneficiaries (legal term) are what family become if you don’t prioritize them.
- Sometimes people call a meeting to avoid going through the effort of thinking through a problem themselves. Require: agenda and a brief (a proposed solution)
- Ego-depletion is NOT real. There was publication bias. It’s all about the thoughts in our head.

Lastly, I appreciate the passion and enthusiasm the author, Nir, put into narrating the audiobook himself!

In short, I highly recommend you take a listen.

Thanks,
Bart

Solid but really nothing new...

Overall a solid book, but seriously lacking in originality. Most, if not all of the info can be found in order and older self-development books, including references to the same studies. Only the labels used slightly differ. Still, if you haven't read any of those books yet, this is a great place to start since it basically summarizes the main points of productivity.

It's about building good habits

A distraction takes you away from something you had planned. Plan your time to gain traction on the tasks you want done. For example, responding to emails at work is traction. While responding to emails at your child's soccer game is a distraction. Disarm the trigger for distractions:
* Look for the emotions that seed distractions.
* Keep track of all the triggers.
* Explore the negative sensation of the triggers (tell yourself to wait 10 minutes before giving in to the craving for the distraction).
* Be extra cautious during liminal moments (transitioning from one task to another, such as leaving a meeting and checking your smartphone).

Much as of the content is familiar if you've read productivity, good habits, and focus books. I gave it high rating because this book is well organized, well written, and a good balance of information and advice.

Incredibly helpful!

I listened to this book twice in a row and each time I found separate little gems I missed. I immediately started timeboxing my schedule and 2 weeks in I've already been more productive. I also loved the chapters on raising indistractable children. Although I'm a big fan of personal development it never occurred to me how many practices I could teach my son that would not only help out now but also make his habits better for everything he dreams to accomplish in the future. Great listen, Definitely highly recommended.

Helpful reminders for self and children

Nir does a great job in helping us realize the power of focus and how distractable we have become. Tips and steps to be indistractable are helpful and well thought out.
I saw Nir at a conference this year and he is great in person as well. Ironically I didn’t remember his name from listening to his book “Hooked”, and was even more glad to be hearing him in person when I finally realized that he was the author of that book.
I only wish that this book was longer, it’s an easy and enjoyable listen. I learned some things to help my children which was a great bonus!

Good Information

Good information its just rehashed and reworded a few too many times. The important lessons in this book could probably have taken up less than fifty pages or an hour of audible - of course that does not a book make.

Exceptionally practical advice to claim your life back

This was easily the best book I have read in the past year. The steps laid out to help improve relationships with family, friends and work are simple, elegant, and effective. Much care was put into explaining how our time and attention is diverted away from what we truly want, while referencing the relevant peer reviewed psychology articles supporting the proposed conclusions. Debunking common myths, helping me understand how to take accountability for excuses I didn’t even realize I was previously making. I recommend this book for any parent, manger, child or person who finds themselves distracted. In essence, I think everyone could benefit from this book. The real question is, do you actually apply the advice or just listen to it?

Insightful, logic and kind

This book is full of information and helpful tips around fighting distraction. At times it is uncomfortably precise at calling out behavioral patterns, we're all guilty of when it comes to choosing our devices over our own productivity goals and/or the people around us. But the author is always kind and empathetic about it and offers authentic hands-on advice. Plus, I really liked that he read his book himself, his voice is very pleasant to listen to. This really inspired me to make changes in my routine and focus on what's actually important in life. Would definitely recommend it to a friend.

mostly useless

the first half especially has absolutely no value but I powered through, because you should have heard all before writing an amgry review. And to be honest, the parenting advice in the end was really useful so I don't fully regret the time.
Why was the beginning so horrible? Or more like the first half. The only message is: make a plan, stick to it and if you can't...well that's life.
With super useful "hacks the creators never intended" like muting your phone.

Not much content but still valuable

It was a quite short audiobook that could have been much shorter. It mentioned some really good tools and concepts for fighting distractions but also contained a lot of fillers.

All in all I think it is worth a listen if you are struggling with distractions in everyday life or at work.

This book is revolutionary

This is not one more book on productivity. Its teachings lay the foundations of a radical shift in our society. Mastering technology to serve us, instead of serving technology is a skill that can (and must) learn. This work is giving insightful and practical tips to achieve this goal. The author is a passionate human being and his narrative is pleasant and captivating.

Loved all the insights about why we get distracted

I found the book very educational. It also has a long stretch of practical tipps that include private life, work life, personal settings and techniques that help us stay focused.
The section about teenagers and their overuse of phones and online time was really great to hear - every parent in the world who struggles with that should have access to that information.
I would highly recommend it to everyone! It's time & money well invested (as lo.g as we start applying the advice too).
