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...

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

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!

Great perspective

It's a culmination of many different concepts out there in one easy to follow package. I used to follow a strict time management routine and this audio book mentioned why it worked. It's a great reminder on how to get back to the things that matter.

Incredibly interesting and extremely practical

Our family listened to a number of chapter together and loved how Nir shared practical tips on how to live out your values.

Particularly on how to make time for personal goals and relationships as these are area that can quickly get neglected for the demands of work and school.

Highly recommend for anyone who wants to focus more and be proactive with their time and attention.

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?

Must-listen

Well-research, illuminating, concise, and well-narrated by the author. If you're getting distracted by browsing reviews, stop and pick this book already. For the fans of Atomic Habits by James Clear.

Good book with some drawbacks

There are some great advice in this book, and I think most will find the methods very useful. I do not like the self-help book genre, and I wish this wasn’t written in that style. My other drawback is that the author in the introduction claims he has tried meditation but that it didn’t help him get Indistractable. I would on the other hand claim that most of the methods here are thaught in meditation by people like Joseph Goldstein.

The chapters on parenting and kids relating to technology were very useful. 3,5 stars overall.

Dishonesty - Kind Of A Huge Distraction

The author starts by shamelessly plugging his previous book; then blatantly lies to us.

At approximately 10:08 he says "I steer clear of recommending well worn techniques like mindfulness and meditation."
He goes on to say that he's tried that and it didn't quite do the trick for him. He says he suspects that if you're listening to his book, it's because mindfulness meditation didn't work for you either.

If that was his honest opinion, and if he then proceeded to outline a substantially different approach to resolving distractions, I would have no complaint. The advice that follows, however, is precisely - chapter and verse - MINDFULNESS. He even tells us to imagine, and passively observe, our distracting thoughts and feelings as leaves floating down a stream.

This bothers me because I'm actually a huge fan of mindfulness meditation. I've been using it in conjunction with self-hypnosis techniques to resolve issues with binge eating. I was interested in his book just to see if he had anything interesting to add. Apparently not.

If you are interested in mindfulness, save yourself an Audible credit and go learn it from Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche's YouTube channel. It's free.

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.
