International best-selling author Nir Eyal explains how to use design psychology to make anything you want people to do, into a habit. On his website, Nir writes about how technology is supposed to make our lives better, but in reality makes it more difficult to focus. He writes that this happens because the designers of tech products don't understand how the human brain works, and they don't design with us in mind.  Take back control by developing new habits that protect your time from distraction and bring peace back into your life!
Understanding the Root Cause of Distraction

In Indistractable, Nir Eyal explores the root cause of our distractions. He suggests that we often blame technology for our inability to focus, but the real issue lies within us. Our internal triggers such as fear, boredom, or loneliness lead us to seek distractions. Understanding these triggers is the first step towards becoming indistractable.

Time Management is Pain Management

Eyal emphasizes that managing our time effectively is actually about managing our discomfort. When we feel uncomfortable, we tend to seek distractions. By learning to deal with our discomfort in a healthier way, we can become more focused and productive.

The Importance of Making Time for Traction

The author encourages us to make time for traction, which are the actions that move us towards our goals. By scheduling time for these activities and sticking to our schedule, we can prevent distractions from taking over our day.

Reimagining Our Relationship with Technology

Indistractable encourages us to rethink our relationship with technology. Instead of viewing it as the enemy, we should see it as a tool that can help us achieve our goals, if used correctly. Eyal provides practical tips on how to use technology in a way that supports our goals, rather than distracts us from them.

Creating an Indistractable Environment

Finally, the book suggests that we can become indistractable by creating an environment that supports our goals. This includes setting boundaries with others, using technology mindfully, and developing a strong personal why that motivates us to stay focused.
