Show Notes

Do you find yourself endlessly distracted? Do you struggle to get traction with things you need to prioritize? Welcome back to Season two of Hyper Curious. Kicking things off is Nir Eyal, the author of two best selling and the most impactful books every founder must read - Hooked and Indistractable. 

“Understanding the essence of why we do things that we know we shouldn't has always been fascinating to me, why we get tempted, why we go off track, why we get distracted.”

In this inaugural episode, Nir shares what the root cause of our endless problems with distractions are (spoiler alert, it’s not technology), the concept of traction, and how to do things that matter most to us. 

“The problem is not that we don't know what to do, we all know what to do. The problem is we don't know how to stop getting in our own way.”

Listen through to the very end, because Nir shares the marvellous concept of timeboxing, something that will revolutionize the way you allocate time. 

“Time boxing is basically planning out what you're going to do and when you're going to do it. That's all it is. Planning out how you want to spend every minute of your day. Everything is a distraction unless you decide, no, this is what I want to do with my time, including the fun stuff.”

From how to build an indistractable workplace, to how to raise indistractable kids, to how to have an indistractable relationship, download and listen to Nir, the Prophet of Habit Forming Technology, and stop getting distracted.
