Nir Eyal is on a mission to help us all become indistractable.

Technology has done a lot of wonderful things for us over the last decade. Tasks that were once extremely time-consuming or monotonous are now a lot more simple.

On the flip side, we can become extremely distracted by technology and it can keep us from focusing on what matters most. And for me, that’s family.

Nir shares how parents, like me, can control our attention and choose our lives … while still living with the benefits of technology.

Episode Overview

Nir Eyal and I review the following:

  • Why we're so distracted
  • How to gain control and conquer distraction
  • How to manage screen time with our kids and set the right example

This conversation with Nir helped me to focus on what's most important in my life. By prioritizing and starting my day with a plan in mind, I'm already making more traction on my goals. Join me and take control of your life!
