Description

As a lifelong procrastinator, I'm painfully aware of how much productivity-related advice there is out there and how little of it is actually helpful. I recently read that the pope wanted to alter a line of the Lord’s Prayer, from “lead us not into temptation” to “do not let us fall into temptation”. Indistractable is a helpful, comprehensive guide that should be on the reading list of all of those who wish to spend their time in a better manner.

He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices – abstinence is impractical and often makes us want more.Dissatisfaction and discomfort dominate our brain’s default state, but we can use them to motivate us instead of defeat us.

Somehow, I kept getting distracted; even without the tech that I thought was the source of the problem. And I’m really troubled that this book needs to exist, and that we have to fight and scrap to make time for things that are truly important in the face of an overwhelming onslaught of digital ephemera that—oh, hell yeah! A distraction tracker is the only way to help you figure out which of those is causing you to get distracted so you can do something about it.Also, while the idea of timeboxing is appreciated, the truth is not everyone has the ability to plan, at the beginning of each week, slots of work, personal and free time in boxed increments. The product she became dependent on was not a prescription pill or street drug — it was a pedometer. If you're the kind of person who likes to learn by example, and you want to see these tactics in action first, feel free to read Parts Five and on, then come back through the first four parts for a deeper explanation. In The Doors of Perception, Aldous Huxley points out that the Lord’s Prayer has 50 words, and six of them are dedicated to imploring God not to lead us into temptation. The messages that Nir Eyal conveys with _Indistractable_ are undoubtedly as important as ever they have been.
