In today’s episode with Nir Eyal we discuss how to overcome the challenges of distraction from social media, the news and procrastination.
We talk about Nir’s Wall St Journal best-selling book ‘Indistractable’ and how it’s not our phones that cause us to become distracted, it’s our inability to better manage uncomfortable internal feelings.
Nir shares with us how becoming Indistractable is set to become the ‘superpower of the 21st century‘, and in four easy-to-understand steps helps us learn to make our attention levels indestructable.
We talk about the challenges that COVID-19 has on staying productive, especially while working from home, and the impact that expectations, our need for structure and forethought in planning our time has on staying connected to others, getting things done, and how to feel properly relaxed when we are unwinding.
We cover the ways we can teach principles of attention and focus to our kids, so that they remain digitally literate, but socially engaged at the same time.
Nir talks about how most advice about using digital technologies is actually unsustainable and proposes several practical ideas for you and your team about crafting your work environment for better mental health, productivity and connection.
In a fast-paced, wide-ranging and entertaining interview, Nir shares five years of in-depth research and his experience working in and around Silicon Valley, implementing and teaching behavioural design principles to leading technology companies and students.
