“You can’t call something a distraction unless you know what it’s distracting you from” - Nir Eyal


Today's featured Wall Street Journal bestselling author is speaker, consultant, and active investor in habit-forming technologies, Nir Eyal. Nir & I  talk about his newest book, ways to combat distractions and more!


Key Takeaways:

The root cause of all distractions starts from within all of us.

“Time management is pain management.”

“If you don’t plan your day, someone else is going to plan it for you.”

Know how to use technology to benefit you instead of inflating you.

You are more powerful than you believe.

Be the person that becomes indistractable not the person who lets their attention and behavior be controlled by others.

“If something is doing, it’s worth putting on your schedule.”
