With the way technology constantly surrounds us, it is easy to give in to its distractions each time a notification pops up.

And then at work, a colleague could distract you just when you sit to work.

You want to catch up with your family but you end up binge watching that show on Netflix.

Day in and day out, you miss out on professional and personal goals and end up feeling unhappy.

In his book, “Indistractable”, former Stanford lecturer Nir Eyal provides a framework to deliver the focus you need to get the results you want.

He reveals the psychology that drives us to be distracted and why abstinence from devices is an impractical technique.

He reveals a 4-step model to getting the best out of technology, without it getting the best of us.
