We all know the feeling of setting goals and intentions, only to find that we were unable to reach them because we became distracted by something else. What you may not know is that there are specific mechanisms which cause us to become distracted, and there are practical tools we can utilize to help us overcome them (these are not just life-hacks, they really work). Nir Eyal, after a profound moment in which his daughter showed him how easily distracted he was, went on a journey of discovery which culminated in his second book, Indistractable. In the pursuit of indistractability, the importance of planning cannot be overstated, but Nir stresses that we need to move away from to-do lists and plan in a way that allows us to live in alignment with our values. In today’s episode, Nir also explains the three other steps in the process of shedding our distractibility, and how we can learn to harness our psychological powers in order to live our most fulfilling lives.
